Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre

A superspy recruits a Hollywood star to stop a criminal's sale of deadly weapons.


Why watch this film?

Since 'Snatch', director Guy Ritchie has tried to step out of his comfort zone with family fantasies like 'Aladdin', epics like 'King Arthur' and period mysteries like 'Sherlock Holmes'. However, it's clear he's back in his element when he goes into action, like in 'The Infiltrator' (with Jason Statham) or, even better, in the worlds of cynical and charismatic criminals like in 'The Gentlemen'. In 'Operation Fortune: Ruse de guerre', we're halfway between both, with mixed results. The plot follows superspy Orson Fortune (Statham), who must make an uncomfortable alliance with other agents to stop billionaire criminal Greg Simmonds (Hugh Grant). How? By using his favorite Hollywood actor, Danny Francesco (Josh Hartnett) as an infiltrator. There are some poorly crafted elements and others that work very well, like Aubrey Plaza ('White Lotus'), who takes a lot of jokes from the whole thing and from Ritchie's own "formula". The director has found his niche and feels comfortable in it: if you know his movies, you already know what to expect from the feature film, for better or for worse.
