Storyline

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.

Trivia

Locations play a significant role in the picture helping set the tone and authenticity. "We were pleased on 'Sherlock Holmes' that our recreation of 19th Century London transported audiences, and we've tried to do the same here with our depictions of Berlin and Rome, which were inspired by so many films of the time," producer Lionel Wigram explained. "Rome typifies the style of the '60s and Berlin is, of course, the focal point of all those Cold War movies." See more »

Goofs

Kuryakin argues with Solo over Dior and Paco Rabanne fashion accessories. Rabanne (19 years old in 1963, when the film is set) would not have his own label until 1966. See more »

Quotes

Very entertaining
16 August 2015 | by bladesandflameSee all my reviews

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.
