The latest cinematic Rube Goldberg machine from Guy Ritchie, "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.," sure is pretty to look at. That's about all this particular property revisit has to offer in terms of screen satisfaction — heavy on the eye candy. Though like the real sweet stuff, there's just nothing in the way of nutritional value, and too much is going to leave you with a stomachache. Based on the '60s TV series, this "U.N.C.L.E." tells the story of how two spies, one American and one Russian, come together in Cold War Germany to combat lingering Nazi (or "Nat-zee," as it is often pronounced) influence in the nuclear arms race. This film is not about anything other than its own coolness.
