The Man from U.N.C.L.E

Time for some eighties videogame nostalgia with Adam Sandler’s new comedy Pixels, in which aliens use giant versions of retro game characters to attack the earth. While the effects are slick – well, actually they’re pixellated – and the action is fast and packed with gags, Sandler’s humour has dated, and there’s nothing nostalgic about it. A decent supporting cast and all the geeky references in the world can’t help this movie get past level 1.

More retro hits the screens this week in the form of sixties TV spy rehash The Man from U.N.C.L.E – in case Mission Impossible last week wasn’t enough for the action buffs. Expect a stylish, violent spy caper as Guy Ritchie directs current Superman Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer (tipped for Batman before Ben Affleck got the role) as the CIA-KGB combo, working together to fight evil.
