Film Review - The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare


I suspect something happened to Guy Ritchie after he completed work on 2019’s “Aladdin.” The Disney remake went on to become the highest grossing picture of his career, but Ritchie’s attitude and work ethic changed greatly after its release. He’s been on a tear recently, completing four movies in the last five years, and they’ve all been strong, enjoyable offerings, finding intended beats of humor and heart. “The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare” is Ritchie’s latest film, providing a fictionalized take on “Operation Postmaster,” a World War II event involving a secret mission to destroy Nazi U-boat supplies. Ritchie doesn’t go the History Channel route with the effort, choosing to resurrect a jaunty, hyper-violent “Inglourious Basterds”-style vibe to the feature, which delivers outstanding pace for the most part, and does well with its casting choices. “Ungentlemanly Warfare” is Ritchie playing to his strengths, but he’s alert here, bringing a spaghetti western atmosphere to a WWII endeavor, making for an energetic, enthralling ride.
