When walking into a Guy Ritchie film, you’re almost always guaranteed a good time; The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare doesn’t buck that trend. That said, maybe this time it delivered a little too well on the good vibes. While the cast and its chemistry are an absolute blast to watch (I’d gladly watch more fictional missions with this crew), the low stakes and laissez-faire tone seep into every other aspect of the film. The mission, story, and action set pieces, while all fun, lack the heft to make Ungentlemanly Warfare anything more than a lesser, breezier version of Inglourious Basterds.

The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare is another classically suitable entry into director Guy Ritchie’s rolodex of extremely watchable fanfare. The fact that this film is based on true events and the actions of some honest-to-goodness, real-life G.D. heroes makes it even better! Admittedly, it does play tame when compared to similar Ritchie works, and it’s rather straightforward in its cinematography, dialogue, and action scenes (shoot here, shoot there, always calm, etc.), which deprives it of the “Wow” factor that we have come to expect. Nevertheless, it is a good film with great actors and an even greater story.
