    If you have a fondness for the genre and a particular love of '60s pop, The Man From UNCLE is the summer's big fizzy drink, all bubbles, and while it may be gone the moment you walk out of the theater, the smile it puts on your face will likely linger.

  • Robbie Collin

    It succeeds admirably on its own terms – more so, I think, than his two Sherlock Holmes films – and while it never really transcends pastiche, its ambitions don’t lie in that direction.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Dave Calhoun

    U.N.C.L.E. has enough style and smarts to make it an amusingly louche summer movie: a cultivated mix of action and wit, suits and cities, that feels refreshingly analogue in a digital world.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    This new Man from U.N.C.L.E. would be an instant masterpiece if it were consistently as good as its best parts, but even as a hit-and-miss affair, it’s a bracing bit of late-summer fun for anyone who has given up the notion of a major studio offering anything truly revelatory until at least October.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    A celebration of a time when secret agents dressed impeccably, bantered with style, and had exceptionally cool toys. That the movie is almost instantly forgettable is part of the pleasure.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Director Guy Ritchie, who wasn’t born when the TV show debuted in 1964, cleverly captures the elements that made it a success.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    It has taken Warner Brothers ten years to get this property a new life and, thankfully, the results in no way resemble those of its Cold War TV compatriot. Or, to put it another way, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (2015) is good fun, which "The Avengers" (1998) wasn't.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Calvin Wilson

    What really sets The Man From U.N.C.L.E. apart is its refusal to pander to short attention spans. This is a movie whose charm sneaks up on you, like a spy in the night.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Jesse Hassenger

    While The Man From U.N.C.L.E. probably isn’t any less of a caricature of its period than "Sherlock Holmes," it carries its fakeness with more snap in its step. The imaginary intrigue it generates is fleeting, but often beautiful.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    The Man from U.N.C.L.E. plays a like a lower key, vintage edition of a “Mission: Impossible” movie. It’s a good movie with a great look.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Though it's made with lots of modern tricks and technology, it's old-fashioned in the best sense, and not just because it's set in the Sixties.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    It turns out to be absolutely delightful.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Nathalie Atkinson

    The spectacular Italian locations, jazzy score and vehicular action finally go somewhere in the third act, when Ritchie riffs a few stylistic conventions of the era. Mesmerizing and clever, but more style than substance.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    A lot of energy and effort has gone into this endeavor, and I can't say some of it's not fun. But more of it, alas, is just tedious. Say uncle already.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Vikander, the sexbot in "Ex Machina," is having a hell of a year. And you can see why. Gaby isn't much of a part, but Vikander makes her a live wire. Her impromptu dance with Kuryakin that ends in a wrestling match is, well, something to see.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Kenji Fujishima

    Temperamentally, Guy Ritchie aligns more with the lithe, James Bond-like Solo: detached, above-it-all, eternally cool under pressure.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    The director of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is Guy Ritchie, and there are hints, in the Berlin scenes, that he is tempted by the murkier option. Before long, however, as befits the maker of “Snatch” and “RocknRolla,” he drops the shadowy chic, decamps to Rome, and gets down to silliness.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    It almost works. Actually, it does work, hitting the requisite number of hip notes. It just doesn’t dazzle, and that’s kind of a surprise.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    Mr. Ritchie tends to flaunt his wares like a store clerk, fawning over the clothes, chairs and cars, and his usual rabbity pace slows to a tortoiselike crawl whenever the actors deliver a lot of words, which gratefully isn’t often. His talent, as he proves repeatedly, is making bodies and cars crash through space.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Joe Walsh

    It's a good-looking film and the three leads hold our attention, yet the lacklustre plotting and lack of narrative drive undercut The Man from U.N.C.L.E.'s overall charm.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Helen O'Hara

    Cavill and Hammer are made for each other, but the film can’t always find the pyrotechnics to match their chemistry.

    Empire Full Review
  • Josh Winning

    While it lacks a memorable villain, and the central pairing fizzes but never sparks, the film gets by on its vintage charm and a third act upswing.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    The film is nothing but a sensuous rush of snappy period costumes, elegant beauties, dapper men, kinetic action and so-so quips, and because Ritchie seems even less concerned with story than usual, that blinkered approach very nearly works.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    Cavill and Hammer have each toplined major tentpoles before, so it’s something of a mystery why neither makes much of an impression here, but there’s a curious vacuum at the center of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. that almost certainly owes to its casting.

    Variety Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Stylish to a fault and straying from the source, Guy Ritchie's The Man From U.N.C.L.E. revives a 1960s television hit for the short attention spans of today's youth-skewing movie audience.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Michael Arbeiter

    Ritchie manages a promising first act. But at the whim of the action movie formula, and ostensibly nothing else, priorities shift as the story carries forward. When we’re asked later on to attend to escalating stakes and a dimming tone, we’re simply left wondering what happened to all the fun.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Brian Truitt

    While Mission: Impossible has found a popular way to reimagine an old show for modern times, Man is immersed in all things retro — from the ginchy fashion to a jazzy score — but for an action adventure, it’s a mostly tedious affair with fleeting moments of cool.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Ritchie is a director with no instinct for the audience, and he can’t hold things together for an entire film. He seems at a loss, from moment to moment, as to what he should emphasize.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Glenn Kenny

    The period spy thriller The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is only intermittently engaging and amusing, and those portions of the movie that succeed are also frustrating. Because they’re cushioned by enervated, conceptually befuddled, and sometimes outright indifferent stuff. Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    It’s not so much bad as dull and ill-conceived. It doesn’t so much end as sputter out.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    How is that Vikander, who played the robot in the recent (and worthwhile) "Ex Machina," was twice as lively and five times as human in that picture than in The Man from U.N.C.L.E.?

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    It's got a few things going for it and it's not unenjoyable to sit through, but, at the same time, the tone and creative register never feel confident and settled. It's not bad but not quite good enough either.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Jeff Baker

    Looks great, sounds great -- what's the problem? Everything else.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    The early-’60s styles are chic, the Euro locales are swank, and the music cues (including a nod to Ennio Morricone’s Once Upon a Time in the West score) are fantastic. Too bad the plot and the lead performances are so lifeless.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Mark Olsen

    Being a mildly pleasant, passingly amusing light entertainment isn't exactly saving the world, yet the film crosses its wires to blow up even that modest assignment.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    There’s some nice early-60s period production design and the whole thing moves along smoothly, if unhurriedly. But it never delivers anything like the punch of Tom Cruise’s M:I adventures, nor the wit and distinctiveness of 007.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Armie Hammer has given several of the worst performances in recent years — see, or rather don’t, “Mirror Mirror” and “J. Edgar.” The big surprise in The Man from U.N.C.L.E is that Henry Cavill is even worse.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Josh Kupecki

    The chemistry between the leads is nonexistent. Cavill unsuccessfully tries to channel Cary Grant, while Hammer’s Kuryakin has so much inner conflict, it becomes a joke that isn’t funny.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    The threat that this mess of a movie might be followed by a sequel is enough to make anyone cry uncle.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    It’s slow, lethargic, utterly lacking in charm and undeserving of the Cold War setting that is its best trait.
