In the 1960s with the Cold War in play, CIA agent Napoleon Solo successfully helps Gaby Teller defect to West Germany despite the intimidating opposition of KGB agent Illya Kuryakin. Later, all three unexpectedly find themselves working together in a joint mission to stop a private criminal organization from using Gaby's father's scientific expertise to construct their own nuclear bomb. Through clenched teeth and stylish poise, all three must find a way to cooperate for the sake of world peace, even as they each pursue their own agendas.Written by

The suits that Henry Cavill wears as Napoleon Solo were created by renowned British tailor Timothy Everest, who has also worked on the James Bond, and Mission: Impossible films. Solo's suits feature unique details such as covered buttons and squared-off front edges that were referenced from the late 1960s. During one of his costume fittings at Everest's shop, Henry Cavill accidentally broke the change room door off its hinges. The staff kept it as a memento of the time that "Superman" broke their door.

Better than expected
When I saw better than expected, I knew it would be good. But it was better than good, it was great.
Very witty, sexy movie. Take the humour of Sherlock (with Robert Downey Jr. & Jude law) and stick it in a bond movie- then you have The man from U.N.C.L.E. - I like bond movies, but I LOVED the man from uncle. It doesn't get boring, or drop at any point.
If you've read anything negative from critics Don't listen to what critics have to say, they don't like any kind of movie if it's not based on a true story.
It's certainly worth the price of admission, you'll be glad you saw it. I'm honestly hoping a second will be made.
