Highly Suspect Reviews: The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare

The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare Movie Review

THE MINISTRY OF UNGENTLEMANLY WARFARE MOVIE REVIEW

If anyone is going to make a World War 2 movie look cheeky and fun then Guy Ritchie is your bloke. Ritchie returns to the big screen after last year’s somber The Covenant with The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare. Based on a true story, the film follows a group of unhinged, some would say mad, highly skilled soldiers assigned to take down a U-Boat stronghold off the coast of Africa in 1942. The unsanctioned mission is led by Gus March-Phillips (Henry Cavill), who recruits his old mates (Alan Ritchson, Alex Pettyfer, Hero Fiennes Tiffin, Henry Golding) who have a similar distaste for Nazis and set a course for the military stronghold to turn the tide of the war. At the same time, we follow Eiza Gonzalez’s Marjorie Stewart, and Babs Olusanmokun’s Heron on the island as they infiltrate and do recon for the boys in order for them to have an opening to blow up the Third Reich’s U-Boat supply chain. Twist and turns occur and take this war flick into an oddly delightful romp. Listen as our wide boys, Wright, Ben, Spider-Mike, and Nathan, discuss Ritchie’s latest flick and how satisfying it was to watch Alan Ritchson kill a lot of Nazis with a bow-and-arrow.

” width=Wright Sulek (Screener Squad, Digital Noise, Highly Suspect Reviews, Trash in the Can, Audio Editor)

Wright hails from the northern suburbs of Dallas, Texas. His passion for filmmaking brought him to Austin to study and make movies. Since then he’s had his hand in acting, writing, and directing his own short films with numerous like-minded film geeks he’s met along his journey. His newest interest has brought him into the podcasting world. He co-hosted a few different movie related podcasts such as ‘And Now This’ and ‘The Match Cut’. He currently co-hosts with longtime friend, Eric Samaniego, where they talk shop about the grimiest, trashiest, lost gems of movies on their show, ‘Trash in the Can’. Wright also guests and hosts reviews on Screener Squad and Highly Suspect Reviews as well as co-hosts Digital Noise with Chris Cox.

 

 

Nathan Flynn (Screener Squad, Highly Suspect Reviews)

A recent transplant to Austin originally hailing from the wretched hive of scum and villainy that is the Midwest, Nathan Flynn has been a movie super freak since he saw “An American Werewolf in London” way too young and grew up worshipping the James Bond franchise and all things related to Cold War-era spycraft. When he’s not watching movies and being a constant defender of the Tron franchise, he can be found practicing his second biggest love: cooking (having been a chef for 10+ years) and hitting his head up against a desk to write screenplays that nobody reads. He also spearheads his own podcast on the Mission Impossible franchise titled “Mission: Impodible”. He can be found rarely posting on his personal twitter.

 

 

Ben Glasthal (Highly Suspect Review, Screener Squad, Breakfast Pub, Unstabletop Gamers, Video and Audio Editor)

Born in Boston, then ending up in Dallas, Texas in the early 2000s, Ben has always had a passion for film. He started in film school not long after where he launched MovieReelizations.com where he still writes reviews to this day. He’s since moved to Austin where he has been also hopping on podcasts and both editing and shooting videos for One of Us. A fan of films from almost all genres, and many that predate him more than makes sense, he is anything if not eclectic in what he’s watching at any point. For the rest of his free time, he can be found biking, drinking craft beer, being an amateur photographer, and playing video games by himself or on Twitch. He’s best found on Instagram or Twitter as @MovieReelBen.

 

 

” width=Michael Riojas (Screener Squad, Highly Suspect Reviews)

The man with the ever-changing nicknames. Born in Austin, Riojas was rocketed to Del Rio, Texas, a literal Smallville. In his youth, he was bitten by a radioactive… okay, look. Mike is not very good at this whole “talking about himself” thing. But he has been so obsessed with comics, video games, and anime since childhood- that if one has to choose between listening to Joe Quesada or Mike over any obscure Spider-Man trivia, they go to him (or, at least Martin Thomas once said so). He is also a big fan of “Ghostbusters” (he even owns his own jumpsuit and two, that’s right, TWO proton packs!), collects toys and video games, and will defend “Superman IV: The Quest for Peace” if provoked. He lives in Austin with his beloved Dachshund-Maltese and trusted sidekick, Dean. He can also be heard on RageSelect. He can be found on Twitter and Instagram.
