Lighthearted, entertaining Cold War spy romp with a good dose of humor and some good car chases. I loved the conflict and interplay between the main characters. A fun reboot of an old hit TV series done well enough that viewers unfamiliar with the original (like me) don't feel lost.

Stylish remake of the 1960's tv series. Entertaining and tons of fun! Highly recommend!

We watched this at a family gathering and found it enjoyable. It had a subtle humor and a fun twist for those who weren't familiar with the tv series.

We watched it for about 30 minuets and came to the conclusion it was a looser. Just could not get into it. Did not like actors or anything. We finally turned it off.

dreary crap. didn't even crack a smile.
original TV series much better. CGI was OK.

Pretty typical Ritchie fare, neither lead seemed to take things very seriously which works since neither is a very good actor. The whole thing sets up a follow on which would be a mistake. Had to watch it twice as I fell asleep in the middle the first time-not a good recommendation for an "action" movie

This film version of the 1960s TV show is almost all tongue-in-cheek. I like Guy Ritchie movies. I think he is a better director than he gets credit for. Henry Cavill, a.k.a., Superman, is good as Napoleon Solo, and so is Arnie Hammer as Illya Kuryakin. I actually laughed a few times.

Not as bad as I had seen in some reviews. Tried a little hard to be cool/witty/bond-like (I guess similar to the original?). Didn't see some of the twists. Decent action/dialogue. In all not bad

I had almost no interest in this because I'm not a fan of Guy Ritchie (aka Madonna's ex) or films based on TV shows. This low expectations were key to the enjoyment of this frivolous, but stylish film. Based on the 1960s show starring Robert Vaughn and David McCallum as agents on opposite sides (American and Russian) during the Cold War, the film wisely retains the 1960s setting and dives into the fashion, design, and cars of the period, which is the film's main selling point. "It's Mad Men meets James Bond!" was probably the pitch. A good cast helps too: Armie Hammer (stoic, but he's supposed to be), Henry "Superman" Cavill (dull, but looks good in a suit), Alicia Vikander (better than the material, but game), Elizabeth Debicki (great as the villain), Jared Harris, and the always charming Hugh Grant. Don't expect much, but it's a fun popcorn movie and a little better than its reviews (and whatever "Mission: Impossible" is currently in the theater).

Rated 7/10. This was not a fantastic movie, but certainly watchable enough to keep me entertained. The plot was a bit thin.

Those of us who watched the TV series may find this a little disappointing, as it is quite different, much like the remake of the Hawaii 5-O series.

Overall, I think this is worthy of a sequel, which apparently is in the works. This does not guarantee, of course, that it will make it to the screen.

(The two agents debate about what to do with the mad scientist whom they trapped in his own electric chair for interrogation. They turn around when they smell something burning and notice the brightness of the fire in the room they left to deliberate in. After realizing the person the need alive has burned in a fire in the other room)

Kuryakin: "He fixed the glitch."
Solo: "Damn, I left my jacket in that room."

(They watch the fire burn)

Uncle Rudi: Man has only two masters in this world: and their names are pain and fear.

Victoria: Napoleon, I appreciate your message, and now I hope you'll appreciate mine. Any blood relation of yours still living will be dead within the year. They will die slowly and painfully. And you know from personal experience this is an area in which we excel.

-He'd been enjoying the American dream, He had a great job working for the ... Pleasant house in the suburbs ... a new Cadillac and a fat little dog called "Schnitzel."

Kuryakin: I was briefed on your criminal career. Your balls are on the end of a very long leash, held by a very short man.
Solo: I wonder if it was your father's shame that gave you such drive... Or was it your mother's reputation? I understand that she was extremely popular amongst your father's friends...
