Operation Fortune: Ruse de guerre(2023)


Let’s summarize the current situation between movie spies and secret agents. James Bond is looking for a new face, Ethan Hunt is wrapping up next year, Jason Bourne is retired and it doesn’t look like he’s going to be back in action, and with the Kingsman it’s looking good. Perhaps no one needs to see the next Gray Man, the action-espionage novelty Gal Gadot has not yet had a chance to convince of her qualities, and Argyle with Henry Cavill is scheduled to premiere this year, but the audience is yet to get to know him. In short, if anyone wants to start a new series in which super-agents save the world, fight against psychotic billionaires with huge egos and private armies, while looking good and making headlines, now is the perfect time. Operation Fortune certainly had ambitions to impress and steal viewers with a captive series, and it wasn’t without a chance. But a few hours after the projection, I start to doubt

Guy Ritchie and Jason Statham have been friends for many years, and Operation Fortune is their fifth feature film together. In Sbal prachy and vapadni they started together in the film, today both are the absolute top in their field, whether that field should be predatory directing or beating people. Well, that should happen in their news as well. Orson Fortune is a member of an elite team of independent operatives employed by the British government. Now they have to find out more about a mysterious weapon that was stolen by a commando of Ukrainian gangsters, and now a dangerous arms dealer is helping them sell it for ten billion dollars. Orson and his gang will have to shoot, cut down or outsmart several groups of mercenaries, a celebrity-obsessed billionaire, an over-ambitious industry colleague and a Hollywood starlet with the hope of saving the world.

Like this. I can’t say I’m bored. Operation Fortune is a nice-looking action comedy, but it certainly doesn’t look like a movie directed by predator Ritchie and Iwan Atkinson, who wrote Gentlemen and The Angry Man for him. The result of their third script-directing collaboration is a nice-looking and quite brisk spy spectacle with decent action and nice heroes. They are actually probably the most interesting thing about the result, and to a large extent they remind you of the characters from the flop Codename UNCLE, and you often won’t be sure if you should take what they say seriously or if the creators aren’t just making fun of you. This time it is not so extreme due to the setting in the present, but still Ritchie’s team is not afraid to sometimes go against the clichés associated with genre heroes, or on the contrary to use them to an extreme extent. And it works when he’s flanked by the most gentlemanly of gentlemen Cary Elwes, Aubrey Plaza, who maintains her signature weirdness here, and Jason Statham speaking like the biggest bricklayer. And Hugh Grant, who plays a combination of his characters from the previous Ritchie films, that is, an elderly, snotty, slobber who can be unexpectedly dangerous.

But sometimes it seems that Ritchie enjoys playing with the individual heroes, letting them talk to each other and often inventing situations for them that were probably fun to shoot, but sometimes they are somehow extra. Which is true of the entire subplot with a Hollywood celebrity trying to curry favor with the main villain. At the same time, it is precisely this (and not only this) that Ritchie and the film often devote an unexpectedly large amount of space only to then remember that perhaps they were originally trying to shoot something that should compete with Mission: Impossible. And that Jason Statham should beat someone up or that something should explode.

Over time, Operation Fortune breaks down into individual scenes that don’t work very well as a whole. I don’t know if it went wrong in the editing room, or if there was no one watching Ritchie and he just decided to goof off and not deal with anything. As a director, he never gets bored and the result works quite well in both action and comedic moments, unfortunately as the footage progressed I felt more and more that something was missing between the individual scenes. Which wouldn’t be a problem if Ritchie rode the wave of Matthew Vaughn and made an overt parody or an over-the-top action movie, to which one would forgive these things, but Operation Fortune is still more or less a classic action-spy comedy, despite its slight weirdness and slightly strange humor. And here the inconsistency bothers me.

Play the trailerI don’t want it to sound like I left the cinema unsatisfied, but… actually, maybe a little. Operation Fortune is not Ritchie-ish wild enough to act as fresh blood and new energy for the genre, but at the same time it retains a certain ferocity, individuality and otherness that sometimes works, but sometimes also prevents it from being a pure genre film. It ended somewhere halfway. And I won’t say I didn’t expect more.
