Guy Ritchie’s ‘Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre’ (2023) – Movie Review

Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre (2023) is a new action comedy directed and co-written by Guy Ritchie (The Gentlemen, Wrath of Man, Snatch). I know. I know. This isn’t a horror film. Typically, this genre of film is not our cup of tea, but when the opportunity to review a film by such an amazing director presents itself you make it tea time!

Check out this action-packed trailer below, then read on for our thoughts on the film.

Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre (2023) Synopsis

A motley group of spies must learn to work together to infiltrate the world of a criminal billionaire arms broker using a Hollywood star as their Trojan horse.  Will their “Ruse de Guerre” gain them possession of the deadly weapon technology before it ends up in the wrong hands?

Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre (2023) has a star-studded cast that includes Jason Statham (Wrath of Man, Snatch, Transporter franchise), Aubrey Plaza (Black Bear, Life After Beth), Hugh Grant (The Gentlemen, Notting Hill), Josh Hartnett (The Faculty, 30 Days of Night), Bugzy Malone (The Gentlemen), and Cary Elwes (Saw, The Princess Bride).

This talented cast has a few members who have dabbled in horror!

Jason Statham Puts The Action in Action and Aubrey Plaza The Comedy in Comedy!

Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre (2023) is a perfect action comedy. Jason Statham does what he does best and delivers multiple entertaining action scenes. This is complemented by Aubrey Plaza’s comedic timing. I am still rolling at “Cocktail Master”. Statham and Plaza truly steal the show.  Although there were several other honorable mentions from Hugh Grant, Cary Elwes, and Josh Hartnett.

The lack of screen time and character development for Bugzy Malone’s character J.J. in Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre (2023) was disappointing. Bugzy gave a superb performance in The Gentlemen (2019). It would have been nice to see them carve out a more defined character in this film for him and better utilize his talent.

Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre (2023) hits theaters on March 3, 2023.
