The Man From U.N.C.L.E Blu-ray Review


Set against the backdrop of the early 1960s, at the height of the Cold War, “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” centers on CIA agent Solo and KGB agent Kuryakin. Forced to put aside longstanding hostilities, the two team up on a joint mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organization, which is bent on destabilizing the fragile balance of power through the proliferation of nuclear weapons and technology. The duo’s only lead is the daughter of a vanished German scientist, who is the key to infiltrating the criminal organization, and they must race against time to find him and prevent a worldwide catastrophe.

Own The Man from U.N.C.L.E. on Blu-ray Combo Pack or DVD on November 17 or Own It Early on Digital HD on October 27!


The Man From U.N.C.L.E injects fun and swagger back into the spy film genre. The recent James Bond films have been more brute force and thrilling action but not much in the way of the older, somewhat jazzier style of the earlier spy films. U.N.C.L.E. features a game cast, especially Armie Hammer who plays Illya as a imposing KGB agent who has to team up with Henry Cavills' suave American agent Solo. They are joined by the talented cast of Jared Harris, Alicia Vikander, and Hugh Grant. The action is thrilling and slick and the Cold War era setting is used to maximum effectiveness. The score along with the music song choices fit the film perfectly. I find it a shame that this really fun and enjoyable movie was overshadowed at the box office as it deserves a larger audience. I would recommend picking this one up. 9/10


The Man From U.N.C.L.E. arrives on Blu-ray with a 1080p transfer in the aspect ratio of 2.40:1 - The color palette on display is a mix of striking primaries and more natural tones. Saturation was brilliant. Black levels were deep and rich with a speedboat chase at night showing off great shadow details. Fine detail was excellent in the beautiful dresses, crisp suits and close ups of the characters. You almost feel as though you could walk into the picture and stand in one of the amazing locations on screen. No signs of compression artifacts or any digital enhancement. 9/10


Audio is provided by a Dolby Atmos 7.1 track. - This has to be one of my favorite tracks of the whole year. While there is a lot of demo worthy material from this years releases the mix of score, action effects and dialogue reproduction was a thrill to my ears. Dialogue was crisp and clear , having no problem with some thicker accents. Bass provides significant punch with hand to hand combat, gunfire, and explosions. The music choices greatly benefit from tight and precise bass that keeps the viewer in thrilling sync to the beat and the action on screen. There was also places for the surrounds to shine, one scene involving a helicopter is particularly enveloping. Dynamic range and fidelity was brilliant and added to the enjoyment of the movie for me. 9.5/10
