The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015)
Critic 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.

Critic Reviews for The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
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The high-octane thrill of Guy Ritchie's Sherlock films has been replaced by boring, hot guys suavely saving the world in this remake of the 60s TV show.
Despite the fact that it seems to have been designed for a sequel, it's hard to summon up any enthusiasm for the prospect. The characters don't seem to, after all.
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.
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.
Audience Reviews for The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
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 aim a little too close to Tarantino's style), quirky banter between characters, it all works for some of the scenes. In others it feels like style won over substance and it stops you from getting excited about things. Overall, the film is pretty entertaining and especially the actresses deliver memorable performances. But with Richie a little less jerking off to his own style, this could have been even better.
In a year full of post-modern spy movies, it is so refreshing to see a delicious and stylish old-fashioned espionage film, not only technically sensational (mainly the cinematography, art direction and editing) but also extremely effective as an exciting mix of action and comedy.
My goodness, Elizabeth Debicki must be made of Jell-O. She just slinks down to the ground so smoothly, I might as well kill myself. Anyhoo, Alicia Vikander is a spritely fashion plate in mod cloths, but her character seems a bit tough-mechanic-sidechick for the sake of being a touch mechanic sidechick. If only Henry Cavill or Armie Hammer did anything for me, I might have enjoyed this movie more.
