Australian actress Elizabeth Debicki plays Victoria, an ambitious, stunning, ice blonde from hardscrabble beginnings who married a wealthy Italian playboy long on looks but little else. "He isn't exactly the brains of the operation," Debicki admitted. "He likes fast cars and women, and that's fine with Victoria because she can sit behind the desk and run the show, which is what she's always wanted. She's a self-created, enterprising woman and quite a social climber." See more »
In the torture scene, Victoria talks about the "Dark Angel of Ravensberg." However, it's actually the "Dark Angel of Ravensbrück", due to the name of the concentration camp, and it was actually a woman. See more »

That warhead, although not nuclear, shouldn't have any trouble obliterating a medium-sized fishing boat. The aforementioned warhead launched... 45 seconds ago. Giving you about 30 seconds until impact.
[her crew jumping the ocean]
It won't trigger a nuclear warhead, as that requires fission. So, if you do want to make good on your vow, I suggestion you abandon ship immediately.
How's *that* for entertainment?

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.
