The TV series The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (1964-1968) was partially developed by Ian Fleming, the creator of James Bond; Napoleon Solo had started out as a character in Fleming's novel "Goldfinger." In homage, Alexander Waverly, in this film, is a Commander in the British Naval Intelligence, the same rank that James Bond holds. See more »
The submarine shown towards the end of the movie is a British Oberon class. It is also depicted with a post SWUP sonar dome that was not updated until the 1970s. See more »

I like Guy Ritchie, his films like Snatch, Lock stock and Rocknrolla are some of my favorite movies. They are very re watchable, the characters are fun and interesting and the dialogue is very quotable and memorable. The Man From UNCLE has fun interesting characters in the form of the two main secret service agents, one that resembles a suave bond and another a more realistic less smooth Russian agent. These are fun characters and their relationship and conversations are the highlight of the movie. The rest is sadly kind of dull. The action wasn't particularly interesting or investing, the drama was blandish, and I was never really invested in the intrigue and plot. So... yeah... I'm hoping Ritchie goes back to Britain for his next movie as I feel he has a more personal connection with that world, not the spy world.
