Napoleon Solo and Ilya Kuryakin – names to conjure with. The former the best agent for the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement; the latter the youngest and best agent to join the KGB in its history. The two became the best partnership in espionage circles in the classic series The Man From U.N.C.L.E. – portrayed by Robert Vaughn and David McCallum.

Now, Guy Ritchie – he of darkly twisted crime films like Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, and the steampunky resurrection of Sherlock Holmes – has adapted the series for film by updating it and setting it firmly in… the sixties.

Now we have Henry (Superman) Cavill as Solo and Armie (The Lone Ranger) Hammer as Kuryakin – but the basic situation remains much the same.

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. opens on August 14th.

Sherlock Holmes 2

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows is almost as much fun as it predecessor but it may have been a mistake using Holmes’ greatest foe – Professor James Moriarty [The Napoleon of Crime] – so soon.
