The speech JFK is seen on TV giving is probably his speech at American University's Spring Commencement, delivered on June 10, 1963 (it contains the phrase, "Our commitment to defend Western Europe and West Berlin for example, stands undiminished..."). See more »
When the subtitles have Kuryakin's handler saying, in reference to Ilya's disgraced father, "You don't want that kind of shame," the actual line in Russian means "Don't disappoint me." See more »
I went into the movie for my birthday, being a young woman my twin and I were initially attracted by the 2 leading male actors who were captivating & handsome- but is that enough to make a movie watchable to a certain degree? No. But this movie beat my expectations. I had already read some online reviews by critics but to be honest I don't know what movie they had went to see since the reviews were overwhelmingly negative but it couldn't have been 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.'. It was a witty, and smart movie where each actor didn't outshine one another. I personally do not trust critics since they tend to like boring movies like 'The Lincoln Lawyer' that put me to sleep. It's almost as if the movie was too witty for them & the quips and snarky comments went over their daft heads and left a sour taste in their mouths.
I recommend this movie to anyone if you liked the Robert Downey Jr. Sherlock movies then you will thoroughly enjoy this. My only wish is that it was a little longer but that doesn't detract from the quality of the movie.
