The story: International intelligence agency Five Eyes recruits MI6 agent Orson Fortune to prevent the sale of a new, deadly weapon technology that threatens to disrupt the world order. Together with CIA agent Sarah Fidel and Hollywood star Danny Francesco, Fortune must infiltrate the network of wealthy arms dealer Greg Simmonds and prevent disaster from happening.
Ons verdict: MoviePulpers, the search for the new James Bond is in full swing and our money is already well invested thanks to the friends of Ladbrokes, but someone forgets that other quest of yesteryear, the new director for No Time to Die who finally went to Cary Fukunaga . Heavy names were mentioned at the time, such as Christopher Nolan, but undoubtedly this list also included the Briton Guy Ritchie. Unfortunately, this didn’t happen, boohoo, but we did get Tenet in the meantime and we can now also add Operation Fortune to that.
Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre is a typical one vehicle from the Brit behind movies like Snatch, The Gentlemen, Cash Truck, Layer Cake,… in which he tries to mix a plot of a heist with the espionage genre this time. The build-up & structure of Operation Fortune Ruse de Guerre are again excellent with the music tactically doing its job again to build the tension without necessarily having to add the soundtrack to your Apple Music or Spotify account. Of course everything in terms of camera work & cinematography is again top level as all Guy Ritchie films. The acting performance of White Lotus revelation Aubrey Plaza fits Guy Ritchie’s picture perfectly, although Josh Hartnett perhaps a little less despite his metafiction-filled role with brilliance. Hugh Grant became a member of Ritchie’s gang with The Gentlemen and once again captures outstanding moments as a millionaire & arms dealer. Jason Statham is and remains the archetype of Ritchie’s British gangster style. Finally, Operation Fortune has another great denouement that was undoubtedly worthy of a James Bond. Very sorry everyone.
In short, Guy Ritchie’s James Bond comes to life with Operation Fortune: Cunning War in his own known style. Snacking again! Now on view on Amazon Prime Video.
