While stylish, several models of the Ray Ban sunglasses worn throughout the film didn't exist during its early 1960s setting.

This is especially noticeable of Alexander Waverly's Clubmaster model which weren't invented until the end of the 1960s and then were not widely sold until the early 1970s. See more »

User Reviews

Underrated, extremely fun, and cool movie
24 April 2017 | by charafernandoSee all my reviews

From the soundtrack, to the settings, costumes, characters, and action, the man from UNCLE is an exciting and classy action movie. It takes the bond formula and recreates it through Guy Richie's unmistakable lens.

I honestly think Napoleon Solo (one of the main characters, an American Spy) was a perfect role for Henry Cavill, who knocked it out of the park... an Archer-esque, suave, witty charmer/womanizer. The same can be said of Armie Hammer and Alicia Vikander's characters

This is a witty, lighthearted, and funny movie and seriously underrated. It is definitely a go-to relax and enjoy movie for me
