Dove Review

Many of us in the older generation remember this series on TV. This movie, like the TV show, takes place in the 1960s, when America and Russia were at odds in the Cold War.

Napoleon Solo, a very unique man, used to be an art collector or, should I say, a very good thief. But after being arrested for his deeds, Solo is inducted into the CIA to help them solve crimes, in lieu of a prison sentence. Solo meets up with a Russian spy who, at first, is always trying to kill him until the two of them become a team of sorts. Their joint task is to locate a missing scientist, as they believe the man is helping an evil, organized crime cartel. To get the scientist back, they need help from the man’s daughter. Like so many other spy movies, it features lots of action, guns, beautiful women and thrilling chase scenes. This film also features comedy and romance. It is very enjoyable, but due to some content outside our guidelines, we cannot approve this movie as family friendly viewing.
