The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

 
2015
Story
In the early 1960s, CIA agent Napoleon Solo and KGB operative Illya Kuryakin participate in a joint mission against a criminal organization.

In typical Guy Ritchie fashion the movie prefers style over substance and is all the better for it. Fact: Henry Cavill would've made a more than decent 007.
