1960s Adventure: The Man from UNCLE
17 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

The men from UNCLE are at it again.

Taken from year four when most say the UNCLE series was dead, The Helicopter Spies turns out to be the most colourful UNCLE movie of the eight films. Some of the dialogue from Bradford Dillman is outstanding and Robert Vaughn as Solo is cool as always.

Who could not like a film where Carol Lynley turns to the bad guy and says "I think you guys are strange, really strange".

The whole cast totally shines, this might even be my favourite UNCLE movie together with: To Trap A Spy.

Don't be turned off by this being just a two-part TV episode re-edited into a movie, this has a nice feature film feel about it.
