5.0 out of 5 stars ALL THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E May 1 2010
Format:DVD
Bought the whole shabang; must buy for those who are nostalgic for 60's TV shows; back in those days they made no less than 26/28 episodes per season at 50 minutes long. NOT like todays shows who barely make 10 or 12 per year and are about 40 minutes long, including intro etc...
BUY, BUY, BUY get the special case box and the movie. The quality is pretty good.

I really liked it. I'm just sorry that they didn't go into production of a follow up of the serie back then. You liked the serie, you will love the Return too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Only for die-hard fans of U.N.C.L.E. Feb. 24 2011
By harcom
Format:DVD
You should be aware that the first two seasons were broadcast in black and white. You really have to love the series to appreciate the somewhat corny nature of the dialog and sets. It wasn't until the later seasons that additional funds were made available to increase the production values, including a greater reliance on the techno-gadgets; some of the toys were really elaborate and ridiculous, but that's what endears the audience to the show.

David McCallum is currently on the TV show NCIS and in one of the episodes, Mark Harmon (Jethro Gibbs) is asked what Ducky (David McCallum) looked like when he was younger. Harmon answers, shrugging his shoulders: "Ilya Kuriyakin?" What a hoot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solo & Illya Feb. 9 2009
By L. Cabos - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars U.N.C.L.E. reunion movie is something of a letdown Nov. 13 2005
By Joseph A. Admire - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape
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. agents are shown wearing their triangular badges outside headquarters - it was specifically established in the original show that those badges are strictly for purposes of internal security; if agents have to identify themselves to the public, they use the famous gold I.D. cards with the skeleton-globe insignia. And, speaking of, what was with that dull lightning-bolt insignia the new production team designed for Thrush? The new version of the U.N.C.L.E. insignia is pretty cool, though, and it makes sense that the organization would have moved to new offices sometime in the interim as it expanded; it always has struck me that, even in the 1960's, the original quarters "somewhere in the East Forties" were kind of cramped for the continental headquarters of a world-spanning organization.

3.0 out of 5 stars Say "UNCLE"... Jan. 18 2006
By Edward A. Rapka - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape
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. The feeling is that without a worthy adversary, U.N.C.L.E. has lost its way. But now THRUSH rears up Phoenix-like, precipitating Solo's return to the fold, and he finds himself very much a fish out of water (a ploy used, perhaps more effectively, some years later in the first Brosnan "Bond" film where JB's predatory sexual mores clash with the PC feminism of the late 20th century).

Patrick McNee ("John Steed" of the Avengers) replaces the late Leo G. Carroll in a clever bit of type-casting, and there's a cameo by an even earlier "James Bond," but otherwise the show is unremarkable. Our aging fellows, drawn out of civilian retirement (explained for Ilya, but not for Solo), make a few slips being so long out of practice, but they're still in shape and eventually regain their old groove. Both see lots of action, make many witty comments & wind up regaining to a comfortable cameraderie. Curiously, it's never explained what kept them out of touch through the years (was there a falling out?), why top-agent Solo didn't get promoted to an admin position within U.N.C.L.E. (perhaps even Waverly's?), and what led to the ultimate demise of THRUSH years back.

Technically, the show is low-budget with a heavy '70s kitsch (film stock quality is marginal, typical of the era, with lots of stock footage -- one clip through an airplane window shows unprocessed blue-screen). The audio is poorly dubbed in places, with lots of distracting background noise. The stuntwork is pedestrian: a few cars get rolled "A-Team" style, dazed henchman stumbling from the wrecks, a villain dangles precariously from a helicopter skid but only a few inches from the ground, an U.N.C.L.E. swat team rapells down Boulder Dam identified as "Somewhere In Syria." This was a made-for-TV movie and it definitely shows as made on the cheap.

Come to think of it, though, that was the perverse charm of the '60s series, using cardboard sets and lots of smoke bombs. This sequel may ring more true to the series than I thought. --Edward A. Rapka

2.0 out of 5 stars What a disappointment March 22 2009
By Gary P. Cohen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
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. He was very close to purchasing the rights to make the film when another producer swooped in and bought the rights instead. Thus instead of a major film, we got this mediocre made-for-tv job. This film was basically a pilot of a possible U.N.C.L.E. return. It came in about number 20 in the ratings and CBS passed on a return to U.N.C.L.E. It is interesting to ponder a big series of major U.N.C.L.E. films along the lines of the Bond and Trek films. Instead we got this mess, too bad.
I wouldn't buy it unless you can get it very cheaply, buy the original series instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun to watch UNCLE reunion spoof! March 15 2010
By John Eng - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was in junior high when The Man from UNCLE came on the air. Didn't like it much then because I hated the flashbacks they used (jumping from one place to another) but when I saw it the The Return of the Man from UNCLE the first time on TV I enjoyed it. I liked it so much that I made a VHS copy years ago. Definitely a flashback to my childhood. David McCallum and Robert Vaughn were definitely back to their old UNCLE style. Patrick MacNee as Sir John Riley replaces Leo G. Carroll (Alexander Waverly) as the head of UNCLE. George Lasenby makes a cameo appearance in the movie as James Bond. When I found out that the dvd was available it was time to get it. In general the movie is made in the style of the TV series. Even though no UNCLE agent in the movie gets knocked off, it definitely is worth the watch. The DVD version is pretty good. I was shocked that it was released by Paramont which in my opinion does very good with dvd's. The picture quality compared to other remake or old time tv dvd's is definitely a big step up. So it's worth the money for what you get and plus get a few laughs and memories of a very unique TV show from the 60's.
