I don’t understand where all the praise for this spy “thriller”, the Man from U.N.C.L.E. has come from. I appreciate a movie set in the past but it just doesn’t make alot of sense to me.
Admittedly, there were a couple of funny moments but the overall story was boring. There were so many moving parts and unnecessarily complex way to do things, I lost track of what the team was trying to achieve. Also, the “uncle” sent men to test the fiancé and he clearly beat one of them up. So didn’t they report this? Didn’t the bad guys use this information? If not what’s the point of that scene?
It’s a movie trying to be stylish but with a very little substance. The way it was told was annoying especially if you could predict it.
