The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare

The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare review - movie poster

THE MINISTRY OF UNGENTLEMANLY WARFARE is a dramatization of the real-World War II mission code-named Operation Postmaster. It isn’t a 100% reenactment, and some fictionalization has been added.

The mission was formed with a rag tag group of operators who have to risk their lives to try to cripple Germany’s U-boat dominance of the seas.

The team was formed by UK Prime Minister Winston Churchill in secret.

The acting, led by Henry Cavill and Alan Ritchson is excellent as are the cinematography, action sequences, and the score.

This movie made our Best of the Rest list because it was so well done. It is different than many of our Best of the Rest movies. Yet, it has a well-deserved place on our list.

THE MINISTRY OF UNGENTLEMANLY WARFARE has a well-earned rating of “R” in the US R for violence. There is quite a bit of smoking for a movie released in 2024 as well. Given that Ian Fleming was involved in the creation/marketing of this group of operators, that shouldn’t be surprising.
