A Quick Review: The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

24 August 2015

Having never seen or even heard of the tv show on which this movie was based, did absolutely nothing to distract from my enjoyment for this film. It has everything I love in a film. Witty one liners, lots of action, strong female characters and plenty of eye candy. 
What can I say, i'm only human.

Women lining up to see Magic Mike 2 are fooling themselves, unless all they want is a male stripshow on film, then go for it ladies. The irresistible character and charm that are Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill, well it's just a tad ridiculous. How can so much attractiveness go into just two men. If you know me, you know I'm hardly one to swoon, (unless it's Lee Pace) but these men now have my utmost attention.

I mean there's nothing more attractive than a man that knows how to dress, and the outfits on all the cast in this film are droolworthy. The high class sixties fashion on the actresses, especially Alicia Vikander, made me wish that sixties fashion was back on trend.

If you hadn't gathered from my rambling yet, this Guy Ritchie film is gorgeous. The cinematography, superb. I just can't look past a good spy film, and this movie hits all of the right notes. With short romantic scenes, plenty of humour and suspense, this film ticks all the right boxes in my book. 
There's not much more to say than that. If you want to go to a current film that had my partner and I whispering to each other mid film, "this movie is great!" then this is the flick for you. 
Cya! xx

  14. Sounds like I definitely need to see this! Well dressed men? SIGN ME UP.

  15. I think a love of men who know how to dress, disliking of Magic Mike and mutual swooning over Lee Pace might make us the same person? I do really need to see this film though. A friend of mine recommended me it to me, and I just love 60s fashion.

  16. This sounds like a pretty good movie, the kind of a rare good movie!, & really – I hated Magic Mike, but this movie does sound interesting so I think I'm gonna give it a go and watch it next time I'm on some (probably not 100% legal) streaming website. :) Thank you for sharing!
    PS. I started following you, loving your blog!
