The real Solo must escape and stop his Thrush double before it's too late.

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

Robert Vaughn is surprisingly good in this role and the humour of the movie is highly entertaining. 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 characterization 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 spies scene would be seen in Voyage episodes such as The X Factor.

They did eight UNCLE movies (aka the UNCLE pilot & the UNCLE two-parters) and they all mostly good fun. The film titled - One Of Our Spies Is Missing - is the only exception, this one stinks! But the others are fine.
