Ritchie has tried to make a sleek and smart period spy caper, but The Man From U.N.C.L.E. falls short of any of its intended opposition. Looks great, but feels wrong.

Suffers from trying too hard to be cool -- the adaptation falls flat.
August 30, 2018
I may not remember seeing The Man from U.N.C.L.E. at the end of the year because it is not bringing anything especially inventive to the screen.

Ritchie's movie is posing from the off. As such, this Man from U.N.C.L.E is one very poor relation.

Much of the action in UNCLE is rendered incoherent by Ritchie's chop-shop action direction. Ritchie has a distinctive style, but like Zack Snyder and Michael Bay he has a tendency to overplay his talents.

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.

What ought to pop and fizz simply plops along. If Mr. Ritchie was aiming for sleekness and suavity, what he ends up with is a stagnant muddle.
February 13, 2018
How desperately, crashingly bored and short of ideas Ritchie must be to write an entire scene about Paco Rabanne. The results are curiously sexless.

The dialogue is the movie's biggest problem. The overwhelming reaction I had immediately after leaving was, "Guy Ritchie thinks his writing is much funnier than it is."

It all ends up sounding a bit like The Matrix's Agent Smith doing Roger Moore doing James Bond.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 15, 2016
A gigantic leap forward for the mannequin acting community.

April 5, 2016
The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is Ritchie's first film in almost four years and if he is ever to be considered an auteur, which his initial rise promised, he needs to do something spectacular and soon.

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.

August 29, 2018
A jet-setting game of cat and mouse that suits naptime more than movie time.
September 3, 2015
Maybe the lowest point on Hollywood's spy fever this year... [Full review in Spanish]

Ritchie seems to distrust the material he has to work with and falls into irrelevant assembly games in which he tries to surprise the viewer without intriguing them first. [Full Review in Spanish]

September 4, 2015
The Man from U.N.C.L.E has style to spare, especially when Ritchie matches the richly textured images with perfectly selected music tracks, but substance proves to be more elusive than the nuclear whatsit.
September 23, 2015
The movie offers nothing new; I think I'll stick with the original TV series. [Full review in Spanish]
September 4, 2015
One actually misses the sizzle that Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law share in the same director's Sherlock Holmes.

This failed attempt to bring the classic TV show to the big screen fails it's main mission: to entertain [Full review in Spanish]
