Trivia

As well as featuring past Bond actor George Lazenby, the film also features two actors who would later appear in Bond films; Patrick MacNee (Tibbet in A View to a Kill (1985)) and Anthony Zerbe (Milton Krest in Licence to Kill (1989)). See more »

Goofs

In the opening gambling sequence there is heard a "phone call for" page over the casino's speaker system. No casino would allow pages like that, it would distract from people gambling. That's also why there are no windows or clocks on the gambling floor. See more »

Quotes

Nigel Pennington-Smythe: What are you doing?
Illya Kuryakin: Trying to get an explosive cap out of my boot heel, so I can blast the pipe apart so we can get out of here.
Nigel Pennington-Smythe: Why would they put the explosive cap in your shoe? You'll never get it with us hanging by these handcuffs from the pipe. You'd think somebody would have thought of a better spot to put it.
Illya Kuryakin: Well, thats progress I guess?

A fun romp
14 August 2001 | by sp27343See 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.
