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.

Where the TV show's Robert Vaughn and David McCallum enjoyed an effortlessly bickering, bantering rapport, Cavill and Armie Hammer's Kuryakin look as if they've just been crated to the set by FedEx and have never met before.

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 acting, the humour, the script... this is a film that falls miserably short right across the board.

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.

Too bad that U.N.C.L.E. can't even muster enough thrills for a final life-jolting pop. Instead, Ritchie and the movie strike a pose and leave us waiting and wanting.

The movie reboot of the classic spy TV show both benefits and suffers from its director's trademark style. Split screen, odd music choices (which sometimes… More

Suave, stylish and entertaining. I hope there's more to come!
