In the early 1960s, CIA agent Napoleon Solo and KGB operative Illya Kuryakin participate in a joint mission against a mysterious criminal organization, which is working to proliferate nuclear weapons.
The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (2015) stands entirely by itself. But for those familiar with its genetic line, including Guy Ritchie, Lionel Wigram, and fellow producers John Davis and Steve Clark-Hall, there is a bonus in sharing their affection for an archetype that enthralled mid-1960s television viewers and spy-game aficionados on both sides of the Atlantic. "When I was growing up, they were the coolest guys with the coolest gadgets and weapons," recalled Davis, who was raised in the USA. "It was a secret international force working behind the scenes to keep the planet safe, like the United Nations of the spy world, and I loved it."
Thank you, gentlemen, for fouling up two years of hard work!
During the opening credits, a map of Berlin is shown, divided into Russian-controlled East Berlin and American-controlled West Berlin. In reality, The US only controlled southwestern Berlin. Northwestern Berlin was administrated by the French, while central West Berlin was British territory.
The Warner Bros/Ritchie Wigram logos, opening credits and part of the closing credits appear in a red line containing 1960s documentation, which includes dossiers on the UNCLE crew.
