Napoleon's sideburns are fairly short in the film, but are considerably longer when the front desk clerk is in his room. See more »

As one of the biggest fans of the TV series, never missed it or the spin off, The Girl from UNCLE, I had such high hopes for the movie. the move was a big boring disappointment from the opening credits.
I actually fell asleep in the theater, not once but twice. My family ended up, getting up and leaving before it was over.
Most of the fight scenes were more implied then shown, the characters were never developed, the photography looked like something someone turned in at the Film school for a final project.
I was crushed. There was so much that could have been done to make this movie a block-buster and they missed the boat.
I don't blame the cast, they are great action actors, the fault was with the script, or maybe the script and the director. Bad, bad, bad movie. I gave it 1 star and that was generous.
