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. These are impressionistic (without sight of impact or blood). In one fight a man is hit with a tyre iron and another is briefly kicked in the face. There is also 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. The character judders occasionally when it's switched on, but the intensity is undermined by comic moments throughout the scene. Torture is also discussed but without any strong verbal detail.

The film also contains mild innuendo and sex references, and sight of a woman's bare back as she walks away from a bed. There is also a mild and passing drug reference (on a character's personnel file) and some mild bad language. More information is available for grown-ups on the main BBFC website and free BBFC apps.
