|Title:||The Man from U.N.C.L.E.|
|01.08.16||Internet|| This one was pretty odd. There was a lot of style to some of the sequences but also some really weird tonal choices that, to me, undercuts the film. Particularly the music... I like all the songs used but they were sometimes not appropriate I think. Like especially the beginning. The visuals flashing by quickly in a very kinetic manner but the music is completely muted and mellow. Made me feel weird.|
Especially after the inevitable comparison to Kingsman which is much more action than intrigue, this one feels like it's missing a critical spark to bring the thing to life. But I like that they did it period, it looked great and all that... just missing some ingredient to make the cake rise.
I wonder what Guy Ritchie's life is like now that Matthew Vaughn is making better Guy Ritchie movies than he is. Maybe Madonna is a vampire? Damn Madonna stole his life essence!!!
