Trivia

When they were filming this reunion movie, both lead actors were asked how the success of the original show affected their careers. David McCallum said that he was often typecast and found it difficult to play other types of roles, Robert Vaughn said in his case the opposite was true, he played nothing but villains after the series ended.

Goofs

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 »

A fun romp
14 August 2001 | by (Alexandria, VA) – See all my reviews

This is one re-union movie that had to be made. Fortunately it was made by a rabid fan of the original--a man named Michael Sloan who went on to produce "The Equalizer". Sloan and director Ray Austin (who directed many later episodes of "The Avengers") made sure they kept much of the tongue in cheek humour of the series, and made the movie a high quality venture, but up-dated it to then modern times (1983). A touching item was the stars made a point to notice they were getting to old for this kind of physical action, and that Illya points out "progress" is not necessarily a better thing. The supporting cast was first rate with Anthony Zerbe (what happened to him?), Geoffrey Lewis, Keenan Wynn, and especially Pat MacNee (former Avenger John Steed) as the new head of UNCLE...Its a shame a planned new series was not picked up by CBS.
