Don't go into this movie thinking it will just be another boring war film about World War 2. The History Channel had nothing to do with this film. It has all the action, comedy, and Nazi butt kicking you need and then some.

Based upon recently declassified files of the British War Department and inspired by true events, THE MINISTRY OF UNGENTLEMANLY WARFARE is an action-comedy that tells the story of the first-ever special forces organization formed during WWII by UK Prime Minister Winston Churchill and a small group of military officials including author Ian Fleming. The top-secret combat unit, composed of a motley crew of rogues and mavericks, goes on a daring mission against the Nazis using entirely unconventional and utterly “ungentlemanly” fighting techniques. Ultimately their audacious approach changed the course of the war and laid the foundation for the British SAS and modern Black Ops warfare.

What really brings this movie together is the amazing cast, and how well they all play off each other during the whole movie. Henry Cavill, Alan Ritchson, and Alex Pettyfer all go well together and are able to interact with each other to the point where you are in shock by some of the scenes. Not only that being just so funny, but also filled with some awesome action and exciting moments that will keep you on edge.

The character Alan Ritchson portrays, Anders Lassen, almost steals the whole movie. He knows how to bring comedy, action, and amazing fight scenes together to bring us the perfect character. His character helped move this movie along, and in the way you want the movie to move, to be such an awesome movie.

This movie really does pack a punch. It brings together all the action, comedy, and even drama you need to make an awesome film that you will want to watch again.

There are moments where you will be on the edge of your seat, invested in not only what's going on, but the outcome that may happen. The movie keeps you guessing about what may or may not happen. This only adds to how this movie will be different from what you have watched in the past.

So make sure you get your large popcorn ready. This will be needed to make all those action scenes fully packed, and you'll be so into the film, the popcorn will just help add more effect.

THE MINISTRY OF UNGENTLEMANLY WARFARE opens in theaters nationwide on Friday, April 19th, 2024.
