A mildly amusing Guy Ritchie venture

Facing lengthy delays in release following the current war in the Ukraine, with key parts of the films plotline involving Ukrainian antagonists, Guy Ritchie's seemingly forgotten about Operation Fortune: Ruse de guerre finds the colourful director back on familiar ground with an equally familiar partner in crime in the form of Jason Statham but while on paper everything here points to another The Gentleman/The Man from U. N. C. L. E like Ritchie venture, sadly Operation feels like nothing more than a pale imitation of the British filmmakers best work.

Delivering mild distractions and occasionally featuring the directional flair that made Ritchie one of the most interesting directors to establish himself in the late 90's and early 2000's, Operation is an odd effort from Ritchie who has all the tools at his disposal here to make sure this venture has the same pizazz and smarts as his newly minted cult favourite The Gentleman or his classics Snatch and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrell's but is unable to elevate Operation to anything more than a fast-moving escapade that fails to maximize its premise, locations, cast or budget allocation.

Following the escapades of Jason Statham's suavely named wine loving holiday taking Orson Fortune and his crack team of special agent operatives that includes Audrey Plaza's scene-stealing Sarah, Bugzy Malone's impeccably dressed JJ and Cary Elwes minder Nathan as the crew try and uncover what Hugh Grant's arms-dealing Greg Simmonds is up to on the black market with the team enlisting the help of Josh Hartnett's Hollywood heartthrob Danny Francesco to help out their cause, Operation is an over the top and globe-spanning action comedy that Ritchie on peak form could've turned into a crowd-pleasing and critically appreciated sleeper hit but here on finished product is likely to find his Wrath of Man follow up failing to inspire much interest in any market.

One glaring aspect of Operation's middling nature can be traced back to Operation's script that Ritchie worked on alongside Ivan Atkinson and Marn Davies, with the director's often whip-smart and often genuinely quotable snips and quips only rarely shining here in an otherwise undercooked piece of screenwriting that leaves little room for its talented actors to do much of note with their characters or their wisecracking and while Statham is typically Stathamly, outside of Plaza's off-kilter Sarah and Grant's scene chewing Simmonds, Operation fails to give us the type of memorable players we have previously found in Ritchie's best crime/action comedies.

In an age where it feels as though the big screen comedy is a dying breed, it would have been fantastic to see Operation find it's mojo in a much more notable way and while the film appears to come alive in a bigger way in its late act stages, for much of Operation's runtime you'll be hard pressed to find much worth getting excited about, a shame when you know the man behind the whole affair can often provide the type of fun and showmanship the film is too frequently lacking.

Final Say -

A watchable and mildly entertaining distraction, Operation Fortune feels like Ritchie on sleepwalking mode as the director fails to utilize all the tools at his disposal that could have easily lead to a much more memorable outing than what we get here.

2 1/2 expensive bottles of wine out of 5.

Insulting to the viewer's intelligence

There is nothing to like here except for a great cast that goes through the motions of what they all do so well. The script is insulting as you don't for a moment feel any sense of danger. Our uber heroes are always able to easily hack anything, overcome million dollar security effortlessly, so much so that it's something of a parody of itself. It's like a bad version of Mission Impossible III in the hunt for a McGuffin that doesn't seem to be that important, as our stars try to out use their rapier wit (not) to outduel each other. Occasional funny moments but this is a massively lazy stinker with a very high production and A-list cast that look really old.

Fun Light

Not really funny and the action served tastes lukewarm, the production is okay, the cast too - summa summarum: Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre is a rather redundant and forgettable flick directed by Guy Ritchie. I really don't know why I should recommend this movie to you, maybe if you need a side dish to your popcorn and coke this one will do. Operation Fortune is neither a strong comedy nor a strong action movie, and maybe the idea or premise for that one sounds good written on a napkin but the execution is not: The Man from UNCLE beats this one easy on all fields (production, story, cast) and just plays in another league or dimension. For sure not a total fail but just another entry to that fast growing section in the movie archive marked SoSo. Next.
