The Ministry Of Ungentlemanly Warfare Delivers A Winning Blend Of Action And Comedy

With Europe under Nazi control during WWII; and faced with pressure to surrender and preserve their nation from many military advisors; Winston Churchill (Rory Kinnear) puts a secret and risky plan into action.

Known only to a small circle including Brigadier Gubbins M. (Cary Elwes), and Ian Fleming (Freddie Fix), plans a clandestine mission with imprisoned Gus March-Phillips (Henry Cavill), and his hand-picked team of maniacs.

The plan is for the team to rescue a member of the team on their way to a remote island where it is learned a key part of the Nazi Submarine support system is.

The hope is that by striking a devastating blow to the U-Boat fleet; American forces will be able to rapidly join the war effort in Europe by sending much needed troops, supplies, and resources without fear of Submarines.

Assisting the caper is actress and soldier Marjorie Stewart (Eliza Gonzalez), who along with Heron (Babs Olusamokun), can keep the top Nazi Heinrich Luhr (Til Schweiger), distracted until the team can arrive to conduct their mission.

Multiple factors abound but the team of dysfunctional maniacs take on all challenges and do so with a mix of comedy and violence that is often associated with Guy Ritchie.

While parts of the film drag a bit; the Intro and final act bring it all home in a satisfying way as the great ensemble cast shines.

The fact that the movie is based on recently declassified events gives audiences a new historical perspective and an enjoyable film that delights from start to finish.

4 stars out of 5.
