The criminal organization THRUSH steals the A-bomb H957 and demands $350,000,000 to be delivered within 72 hours by their former antagonist Solo. So U.N.C.L.E. has to reactivate the super agents Solo and Kuryakin after they were 15 years out of business. Equipped in the usual 007 fashion they start to seek the villains. Written by

When Solo goes rappelling down the cliff in the desert to inilitrate, he understandably is wearing camouflage, unfortunately, it is jungle camouflage, not desert camouflage, which makes him extremely visible. Fortunately for him, the script writers were on his side and no one noticed, except for the viewers. See more »
When Solo and Kuryakin meet up in New York, they take a walk in the streets. Near the end of the sequence, after Kuryakin hits Solo, very tall palm trees can be seen in the reflection in the window. See more »
Back when the old Man From UNCLE series was going I thought it was a radical concept. Here we had as the top agents an American and a Russian in an agency run by a British man to the manor born all cooperating against a conspiracy to rule the world headed by some evil folks. Detente a generation ahead of its time.
Leo G. Carroll has passed on, but the United Network Command for Law Enforcement has another titled Britisher in Patrick MacNee heading it. A master criminal Anthony Zerbe has escaped and who better than the two guys who borough Zerbe in back in the day to get him.
So Robert Vaughn and David McCallum are recruited from the lives they now lead, Vaughn as Las Vegas gambler and McCallum as fashion kingpin. Zerbe has also stolen a thermonuclear bomb and plans to blow it up unless he gets a hefty sum of cash. UNCLE's nemesis THRUSH is back in action.
It was nice to see Vaughn and McCallum back in their old roles. Hard to believe that the kindly old medical examiner from NCIS was something of a teenage heartthrob back in those days, but The Man From UNCLE gave McCallum some short lived bubblegum popularity.
I can see why this version failed though, it tried for satire and fell on its face. No wonder this was not picked up to revive the series
