For those fanboys who hated the girl in the team at the end, there was Girl from U.N.C.L.E starring Stephanie Powers that lasted only one season. Why not?
Hugh Grant was unexpectedly good.
Film just right blend of serious & campy.

Entertaining, cute, light humor and twist. More than one spies compete to save the world.

A poor remake of the TV classic. Pretty boys (and girl) who are wooden actors working with a terrible script. Full of cliches and predictable scenes.
If you can get over that, it might be a somewhat enjoyable waste of your time.

Lighthearted, entertaining Cold War spy romp with a good dose of humor and some good car chases. I loved the conflict and interplay between the main characters. A fun reboot of an old hit TV series done well enough that viewers unfamiliar with the original (like me) don't feel lost.

Stylish remake of the 1960's tv series. Entertaining and tons of fun! Highly recommend!

We watched this at a family gathering and found it enjoyable. It had a subtle humor and a fun twist for those who weren't familiar with the tv series.

We watched it for about 30 minuets and came to the conclusion it was a looser. Just could not get into it. Did not like actors or anything. We finally turned it off.

Pretty typical Ritchie fare, neither lead seemed to take things very seriously which works since neither is a very good actor. The whole thing sets up a follow on which would be a mistake. Had to watch it twice as I fell asleep in the middle the first time-not a good recommendation for an "action" movie

This film version of the 1960s TV show is almost all tongue-in-cheek. I like Guy Ritchie movies. I think he is a better director than he gets credit for. Henry Cavill, a.k.a., Superman, is good as Napoleon Solo, and so is Arnie Hammer as Illya Kuryakin. I actually laughed a few times.

(The two agents debate about what to do with the mad scientist whom they trapped in his own electric chair for interrogation. They turn around when they smell something burning and notice the brightness of the fire in the room they left to deliberate in. After realizing the person the need alive has burned in a fire in the other room)

Kuryakin: "He fixed the glitch."
Solo: "Damn, I left my jacket in that room."

(They watch the fire burn)

Uncle Rudi: Man has only two masters in this world: and their names are pain and fear.

Victoria: Napoleon, I appreciate your message, and now I hope you'll appreciate mine. Any blood relation of yours still living will be dead within the year. They will die slowly and painfully. And you know from personal experience this is an area in which we excel.

-He'd been enjoying the American dream, He had a great job working for the ... Pleasant house in the suburbs ... a new Cadillac and a fat little dog called "Schnitzel."

Kuryakin: I was briefed on your criminal career. Your balls are on the end of a very long leash, held by a very short man.
Solo: I wonder if it was your father's shame that gave you such drive... Or was it your mother's reputation? I understand that she was extremely popular amongst your father's friends...
