Solo, An Aussie Spy & Submarine Seaview Connections
19 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

I am no expert on The Man From UNCLE, in fact, before I got the DVD this year the series was just some memory of the 1970s (when I watched it in re-runs when I was too young to understand the sophistication).

Robert Vaughn is surprisingly good in this role and the humour of the movie is highly entertaining. Despite making three viewings of the movie in one year, I am amazed that I simply don't remember huge sections of the film now. I guess that says something? The film has two highly memorable scenes. The first is where the Australian UNCLE spy talks to the UNCLE boss. Nothing in the way of characterisation is given to the Oz spy but he is given what was probably considered correct for an Australian, a way out sense of humour. The Aussie is having a very serious conversation with the UNCLE boss when suddenly he makes a joke. The boss is not amused.

The second great scene has already been mentioned here by another poster, McCallum is ambushed by two small toy robots firing rockets. During the original network run in the US, The Man From UNCLE was screened with Irwin Allen's Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea on another network at the same time. It is interesting to note that this kind of toys with spys scene would be seen in Voyage episodes such as The X Factor.

The Spy With My Face is probably the best of the five UNCLE movies released together on DVD, I would not call the movie very memorable but you will love Robert Vaughn, the music, and fans of Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea will enjoy comparing UNCLE to Voyage.

Helicopter Spies (1968) is the second best UNCLE movie as it has four great guest stars who get perhaps some of the greatest lines ever heard in a spy movie! ("you guys are strange, really strange"). Oddly enough, that movie has almost nothing to do with helicopters?
