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.

Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer are fine. They're FINE. They're maddeningly, generically fine.

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.

The plot is disposable at best... but [Guy] Ritchie goes all out in reviving the Cold War sixties spy movie style and attitude, recalling Connery's Bond movie with tongue firmly in cheek.

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

There's still time this summer for another adaptation of a 1960s TV spy series. Generating the same amount of thrills, however, proves to be a true mission impossible.

This becomes a film feels like a cover version of a cover version. One that neither sends up old spy cinema nor adds much to it with its trans-Euro express of a plot.

Fast, fun and full of beautiful people to look at. The Man from UNCLE is an action thriller that is all style over substance. Which isn't a bad thing… More

Guy Ritchie puts his stylish stamp all over this adaptation of "The Man of U.N.C.L.E." but it fails to cover up the lack of an interesting plot.… More

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