Napoleon Solo. Illya Kuryakin. Names that have remained hidden in the recesses of my mind for decades. I remember loving that old TV show. So I was anxious to see what the show looked like on the big screen. Well. Actually on my big TV screen.
I liked the movie. Of course I did. I am a spy-action-flick kind of guy. I thought that Henry Cavill and Armie Archer did a credible job as Solo and Kuryakin. I generally do not like extended car chase scenes but enjoyed the one at the beginning of the movie. Overall I though that it was a fairly decent, yet a bit campy, reimagining of the old TV classic.
I recommend the movie to you. Especially if you liked the old TV version. Or if you enjoy a bit of PG-13 spy-ish adventure. On a scale of ten, give it ★★★★★★★☆☆☆.
