Nutshell Review: The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare

PG Score: 7.25/10


The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare was released in theaters on 4/13/24


Sometimes going to the movies with no expectations is fun. Seeing The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare, a movie about the real-life guy that Ian Fleming based James Bond on, could only mean one thing for this film; we got a combination of espionage, politics, and warfare. There are explosions, there is seduction, and there are Nazis getting their butts kicked, which always equates to a great time.


 

Heart-Pounding Action


Guy Ritchie has a flare for bone-breaking action. The body count is massive and the outright brutality brings a smile to your face. Each character brings their own speciality, keeping the shooting, knifing, and arrow-shooting fresh and fun. Henry Cavill (Man of Steel) won't win any awards for his performance, but it's great seeing him have so much fun in this role, especially after the drama he had in dealing with the fallout and changeover at DC and his controversial leaving of The Witcher (Netflix). His obvious joy in playing the character easily comes across and makes him a very likable scoundrel.


Alan Ritchson (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) follows up his badassery in Jack Reacher as the knife-wielding, arrow-shooting, Nazi-killing machine. He might just hold the most kills in the film's entirety and it was entertaining to watch him work. 


Worth A Watch, Despite Lull


The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare is another solid addition to Guy Ritchie's catalogue. With fast cuts and lots of fisticuffs, the movie loses a bit of its steam when we follow the espionage team. Eiza Gonzalez (Baby Driver) and Babs Olusanmokun (Dune) work well together, but the movie definitely slows down while we follow their mission. However, it's not enough to take away from the film entirely, this is one of those good popcorn flicks that are worth seeing on the big screen. 


PG Score: 7.25/10
