It felt like we were back in the original series, though slightly less tongue-in-cheek as some of the antics. The chemistry was there and this spy escapade had the feel of an early Bond, or what a Bond could be under a different direction. Nice set pieces with a grounding in the reality of the era. Hope to see more of UNCLE as it has franchise potential like IMF, 007, etc.

More of the same from Guy Ritchie, Holmes & Watson. The originality of the first one has worn off, and while this is well implemented and visually stunning in places, it feels a little “grey”. It’s a good piece and Moriarty – well played by Jared Harris – is a good arch villain. I felt that Holmes’ visualisation routine was a little overplayed, though the bullet time elements worked well. Enjoyable but not as much as the first.
