Product Description

The criminal organization THRUSH steals the A-bomb H975 and demands $300,000 to be delivered within 72 hours by their former antagonist Solo. So U.N.C.L.E. has to reactivate the super agents Solo and Kuryakin after they were 15 years out of business to take down THRUSH once and for all..and save the world.

Open Channel D! We're gonna party like it's 1964, when global espionage, secret agents, and evil masterminds bent on holding the world to multi-million dollar ransoms were all the rage. This 1983 reunion film recaptures some of The Man From U.N.C.L.E.'s vintage "cloak and swagger," but it also has some sly fun setting these Cold War-era spies loose in a contemporary world that could use their urbanity and a sense of style. Things are different since suave Napoleon Solo (Robert Vaughn) and cool Ilya Kuryakin (David McCallum) retired. Del Floria's Tailor Shop, the former headquarters of the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement, is now just a tailor shop. Alexander Waverly (the late Leo G. Carroll), who ran the covert operation, has passed on, replaced by Sir John Raleigh (Patrick Macnee of The Avengers, ironically, the rival show whose popularity played a part in The Man From U.N.C.L.E.'s cancellation in 1968). But some things never change. THRUSH has hijacked a nuclear device and threatens to detonate it somewhere in the United States unless Solo himself delivers the demanded $350 million of ransom. From the moment Ilya leaps in to the fray to help his old partner and friend in a bar fight, it's just like old times, except that Solo is a little rusty, and U.N.C.L.E.'s hotshot young agents are a little less than impressed. But he can still teach them a few tricks. The pleasure of seeing Vaughn and McCallum back in action is tempered a bit by campy moments that echo the series' unfortunate third season. During a car chase, Solo gets some assistance from one-Bond wonder George Lazenby, who cameos as a dapper-looking man in an Aston Martin with the personalized license plate "JB." But that is the most grievous offense in an otherwise entertaining adventure that will give U.N.C.L.E. fans many happy returns. --Donald Liebenson

A project that took time to get off the ground but in 1983 U.N.C.L.E. fans were treated to the return of Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin one last time. Both agents had left U.N.C.L.E. to pursue other careers -- Solo as a computer salesman and Kuryakin as a fashion designer. Mr. Waverly had passed away and the organization is now being run by Sir John Raleigh (Patrick MacNee of the AVENGERS). A nuclear crisis brings the two back into the fold. Some witty dialogue:
Illya: They're all men! What happened to all the beautiful girls that worked for U.N.C.L.E?
Solo: They're in the U.N.C.L.E. home.
Look for George Lazenby in a cameo as "JB". Directed by Ray Austin, better remembered for his work on THE AVENGERS. Cast includes Geoffrey Lewis (EVERY WHICH WAY BUT LOOSE, ANY WHICH WAY YOU CAN) as Janus, Anthony Zerbe as Justin Sepharim (the head of THRUSH) and Tom Mason as the new generation U.N.C.L.E. agent. The old-time chemistry between Vaughn and McCallum is still there 15 years after the series ended. Unfortunately, after being brought together again the two are sent off on separate directions. Still, as Robert Vaughn said at the time, the minute he put on the tuxedo it felt like 1966 all over again. A new U.N.C.L.E. logo appears. THE RETURN OF THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E.: THE FIFTEEN YEARS LATER AFFAIR. A long wait but ultimately worth it. A nice transfer this time. Only extra is the trailer.

Quite a lot of effort was expended during the 1970's and early 1980's in putting together a Man from U.N.C.L.E. reunion movie (at one point, Italian sex symbol Laura Antonelli had actually been signed to play Serena in the movie, reprising the role originally played by Senta Berger in "The Double Affair/The Spy With My Face"). However, at the end of it all, what we got was something of a molehill for the mountain of effort, a TV movie that was originally run on CBS in the spring of 1983. It;s not really bad, but it could have been so much more than it ended up being.

It's 15 years after the events of the original series, and Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin have both parted ways, not entirely happily, with U.N.C.L.E. Napoleon has become a computer entrepeneur (!) and Illya has become a fashion designer (!!). Meanwhile, Justin Sepheran, one of Thrush's honchos, has escaped from federal prison and has taken charge of the organization's efforts to become a nuclear superpower (shades of "Thunderball" and "Never Say Never Again").

One of the big problems with the movie is that, having expended a lot of effort to get Napoleon and Illya back together with U.N.C.L.E. again, the two agents are then immediately split up to work on their own to defeat the twin arms of Thrush's plot (Napoleon gets a rather annoying 1980's agent as a partner). This pretty much throws out one of the original show's key selling points, the relationship between Solo and Kuryakin.

As a femme fatale for Napoleon, Gayle Hunnicutt is, IMHO, not very much at all; I wish they had stuck with Laura Antonelli instead. Napoleon doesn't use the famous U.N.C.L.E. Special pistol at all (though Illya does). There is a BIG conceptual goof early on where U.N.C.L.E.

Robert Vaughn & David McCallum reteam in this 1983 sequel, reprising their characters admirably & accurately, but the overall tone of this (one of the earliest of the tv "reunion" movies) fails to match the jaunty tongue-in-cheekness of the original, despite screenplay credit by series-creator Sam Rolfe, nor does it have the original hep music by Fried & Goldsmith.

The plot is typical of the '60s series: U.N.C.L.E.-vs-THRUSH, in the process dragging an innocent bystander into the fray. But besides the two leads, nothing remains of the original U.N.C.L.E. mythos. By 1983 the MGM backlot had been bulldozed for condos, so they shot entirely on location--even interiors. The result feels a little too raw. Sadly, the design ditched the sleek steel-panel walls of the original HQ, the cute miniskirted G3s & the gee-whiz technology that made the show fun. The old HQ "somewhere in the east '40s" has been boarded up and operations moved a few blocks away to new offices that smack of a mid-sized corporation somewhere in Wisconsin, with wood panelling & fluorescent overheads. In fact, the only elements reprised from the series are the pen-radio, the briefing-room TV sequence and a few "old-world" computer blinking consoles dragged out of the proproom.

The shtick of this remake is that the current staff of U.N.C.L.E. (the full "United Network Command for Law and Enforcement" emblazoned on the hallway walls; apparently U.N.C.L.E. is heavily into branding now) comprises vanilla-bland PC yuppies, possessing none of the silky suaveness of Napoleon Solo, and the entire agency seems to have a bureaucratic feel hanging over it. Perhaps with good reason: the international terrorist agency, THRUSH, is said to have been disbanded some years ago.

One thing I've learned over the years is that if you didn't think much of a film when you saw it 20 years ago or so, you're still not going to think much of it years later. This film proved that again for me.
U.N.C.L.E. was my all-time favorite tv show, I absolutely loved it from the night it premiered on NBC (and loving it wasn't always that easy considering its disasterous 3rd "Camp" season.) I was very excited about this film and couldn't wait to watch its initial airing on CBS. What a total mediocrity it turned out to be. Vaughn and especially McCallum are quite good. Parick MacNee was an inspired choice to play the new head of U.N.C.L.E. However he is given little to do. Some of the other performances are not so good however. Anthony Zerbe is his usual professional self as the head of THRUSH. Tom Mason is a total embarassment as a new moronic U.N.C.L.E. agent named Kowalski. The biggest embarassment however is George Lazenby driving around Las Vegas is a second-hand looking Aston Martin, with the license plates J.B., just in time to help Solo in a very unexciting car chase. I find this scene very sad considering Lazenby's great Bond film "On Her Majesty's Secret Service." The action scenes are pathetic attempts to rip off Bond films. The conclusion with totally exposed U.N.C.L.E. agents in motorboats taking on an army of concealed and highly armed THRUSH agents and easily defeating them is ludicrous.
I once read a long article on the making of this film. Apparently there was a young writer, (whose name escapes me,) whose dream is was to bring U.N.C.L.E. to the big screen along the lines of the first few Star Trek films. He got a script together and even got Vaughn and McCallum to agree to the project.
