Consensus: The Man from U.N.C.L.E. tries to distract from an unremarkable story with charismatic stars and fizzy set pieces, adding up to an uneven action thriller with just enough style to overcome its lack of substance.

Exactly no one was asking for this. So it's a surprise to discover that the bar for this movie is low enough to conga under.

This is one of those rare instances when a sequel wouldn't just be warranted - it would be welcomed.

The main problem with The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is its tone. We can't take this stuff seriously, yet Ritchie misses all sorts of opportunities to make the movie fun. The result isn't particularly satisfying as either adventure or comedy.

As for Cavill, let us just say that the line between phlegmatic suavity and downright dullness is rather more easily breached than the Berlin Wall.

While it looks good - Ritchie has always been a slick visual stylist - it's ultimately as passive as an old rerun.

Guy Ritchie's The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is a massive disappointment that flat-out ignores the television show on which is was supposed to be based, replacing the fun and camp of the original with a generic and lazily-written actioner.

It's breezy and elegant - so breezily elegant it can make you laugh out loud from frame to frame.

Mesmerizing and clever, but more style than substance.

Jay Stone

It's partly second-rate Bond and partly second-rate Mission Impossible: something to fill the time during the long months before the fall movie season.

A jaunty joy ride that seeps with Guy Ritchie ooze, it's stylish through and through, even when the narrative doesn't hold up.

Guy Ritchie's big screen reboot of the 1960s TV show is the right kind of fizzy summer escapist entry that goes down smooth and entertains with just enough… More

Guy Ritchie's The Man from U.N.C.L.E. takes a trip to the past with style. Laying it on for a 110 minutes the combination of action and comedy blends well… More
