Our review

The Man from Uncle is such a fresh TV series adaptation. It has a great ensemble casts like Cavill,
Hammer, Vikander, Debicki, and Grant. The 60's settings is really great. The editing and
the cinematography is well paced and nice. Although the characterization and the plot seems less that we
were expecting from the trailer. It has a really complicated plot and the characterization seems not so deep
because it is a popcorn action movie. However it's still a guilty pleasure summer movie and it's recommended
for all of you who love retro-spy movies.
Our rating: 3.4/5
