| Could not always follow the plot but this is a hip, stylish film with handsome stars
In the early sixties, Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill) goes to rescue a beautiful damsel Gaby (Alicia Vikander) from East Berlin. She's an auto mechanic and doesn't really find that Napoleon is the greatest rescuer, as they are in immediate peril from a Russian, Ilya Kuriakin (Armie Hammer). After a great chase scene, the new duo get away to Italy, where they hope to find Gaby's long lost papa. All too soon, it becomes clear that the papa is helping an evil woman, Victoria, and her gang develop a nuclear weapon for nefarious purposes. Unexpectedly, Ilya joins forces with them and Gaby poses as Ilya's fiancee. In truth, the two like what they see in the other. With setbacks along the way, the trio eventually find a moment to turn the tables on the bad, bad lady. Will they be successful? My plot summary for this film is woeful, for I had trouble following the storyline. However, it didn't matter a smidgen as the action and stars and cool-factor made up for everything. Cavill and Hammer are great as the new daring duo and Vikander's breathy, matchless voice and beauty are always welcome. And, wow, does she look good in Mary Quant! All of the scenery is yummy and the special effects quite thrilling. If you heard this film is not up to snuff, you heard WRONG!
