User Reviews: The Karate Killers is geared mostly for those baby boomers who watched the Man from UNCLE. Robert Vaughn and David McCallum were my heroes as a little girl when I watched the Man from UNCLE. Watching the movie now, I find it: nostalgic, a typical 60s spy movie, and a wee bit over dramatic. Of course, more than 40 years of movie watching has passed by. I am glad that the main characters and type of plot did not change and neither did the secret of the success of the Man from UNCLE still remains in the film. However, I miss the sophistication today’s spy movies contain. The acting is decent and they interplay well. I am rating this movie against today’s spy movies. It is still a decent movie. The movie is basically a matinĂ©e or a late night show. Bring popcorn for this one and enjoy a 60s spy movie.
