Movie Review: '6 Years' (2015)

There’s a reason the title to this movie is “6 Years” instead of “6 Years and Counting”, that’s because it follows the rapid decline of a pair of young lovers’ 6 year relationship.

Little do they know a cloud is on the horizon and a storm is about to break. A lifestyle spent frolicking with friends, going to parties and getting wasted has its consequences.

A lot of how you respond to Guy Richie’s stylish take on “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” has to do with what you go in expecting. If you’re anticipating the gadgetry of retro Bond, the action adventure of the “Bourne” franchise, the stunts of “Mission: Impossible” and the bromance of Richie’s “Sherlock Holmes” movies, you will not find much of that here.
