U.N.C.L.E. agents Solo and Kuryakin try to stop a megalomaniac who thinks he's like Alexander The Great, commits offenses against the ten commandments and steals chemical weapons from the army in order to achieve world domination.
Megalomaniac Alexander wants to be like Alexander The Great. His plan is to commit the world's greatest crimes to expand his industrial empire. Every crime is specifically designed to contradict the ten commandments. U.N.C.L.E. goes after him when he steals a secret chemical from the US military. Solo and Kuryakin team up with Alexander's former wife, Tracey, to stop him from becoming the most powerful man in the world. This movie is made from the "The Alexander The Greater Affair", parts one and two, from season two of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Written by

I am okay with the spy genre but I don't actually call myself a fan of spy movies/TV shows. I am indeed a fan of 1960s adventure shows (Batman, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, QM's The Invaders, etc) and this is why I am drawn to the UNCLE movies. And I like Robert Vaughn as Solo.
One Spy Too Too Many is taken from the second season of the UNCLE series and it is fine entertainment. I notice all these UNCLE movies are required to have the word "Spy" in the title, which does make it a bit hard to remember which UNCLE movie you are getting. Perhaps Alexander VS UNCLE would have been a better title for this?
Don't be turned off by this being just a TV episode re-edited into a movie...the dialogue and direction is fine here! In fact, I like this more than many of the 007 feature films.
