THRUSH comes up with an agent that is the exact duplicate of Napoleon Solo, and uses him in a scheme to steal top-secret information.
I don’t know if this feature-length version of the TV show “The Man from UNCLE” is actually made up of episodes of the series or not, but I do know that it looks more like a TV show than a movie. I’ve never really seen much of the show, but the movie gives me the impression that it was James Bond Lite, lacking the flashy gimmickry of those movies. Entertaining enough, I suppose, but I have to admit I’ve never really been a big fan of the genre, though many of them do qualify as borderline science fiction with its emphasis on gadgetry of all sorts.
