THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. is an espionage action thriller, based on the TV series and set in the early 1960s, about a CIA agent and a KGB operative who are sent on a joint secret mission to track down a criminal organisation developing an advanced nuclear weapons programme.

Violence

Scenes of moderate action violence include hand-to-hand combat blows, throws and kicks, and undetailed shootings shown in an impressionistic style without sight of impact or blood. In one fight a man is hit with a tyre iron, another is briefly kicked in the face, and there is an implied but unseen stabbing, with a small blood trickle seen in the aftermath.

A supposed 'torture' scene shows a hero in an electric chair juddering occasionally when it's switched on, but the intensity is undermined by comic elements throughout the scene. There are also some undetailed references to torture.

The film also contains mild innuendo, mild sex references, and sight of a woman's bare back as she walks away from a bed. There is also mild and passing drug reference and mild bad language ('ass').
