This news is about a week old. But, it looks like this is only getting a North American theatrical release. Amazon Prime bought the international rights and are at some point going to make it a streaming exclusive overseas. No date yet.

https://movieweb.com/guy-ritchie-mov...countries-why/


While The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare is getting a full theatrical release in the U.S. (courtesy of Lionsgate), Prime Video has exclusive rights to distribute the movie internationally. Irritatingly, the film is being withheld from international cinemas and will stream exclusively on Prime Video. This is nothing new, and modern audiences have come to accept streaming-exclusive releases, especially in the wake of streaming platforms like Netflix and Prime Video producing their own content. However, international audiences are frustrated that their viewing experience feels downgraded, compared to American audiences, simply due to their region.

All of this could be forgiven by fans if Prime Video had announced a streaming premiere date for
The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare, but currently, the international release date is still unconfirmed. While U.S. fans are enjoying watching Henry Cavill and Alan Ritchson mindlessly blow up Nazis, international audiences are left in the dark about when they'll be able to watch the film.

This will be coming on PVOD on Friday



It's a massive box office flop for Lionsgate. Only $19M box office. They fucked this movie hard by only releasing it in 4 territories.

I don't think it helped that one of the stars started getting mouthy towards a certain % of the people that may have seen this.


Also movies like this are so quick to streaming now; many may think why bother go to the theater unless it is a huge event movie.

I didn’t see any advertising for this. If not for this thread, I’m not sure I would have even heard about this movie.

I went to the theater and saw it a 2nd time yesterday before it leaves theaters.

Previously, I mentioned that I attempted to see this at an Early screening weeks ago and I was pretty tired. Turns out after seeing it in full yesterday, I fell asleep for the 1st 2 acts on my 1st attempt.

Anyway, being fully awake this time, I loved it. Too bad Lionsgate totally screwed up distribution of this and it made no money. Very tongue and cheek, lots of bloody kills, humor and all kinds of mayhem.

Only issue I had was that Til Schweiger was supposed to be this big bad villain and he ended up being pretty tame.

The end credits that showed who the real life characters that these were based on was an interesting touch.

Wow, was this good! Typical Ritchie movie which is ok by me. I’ve liked most of his stuff over the years and I love he likes to work with same actors. This was surprisingly good. Carey Elwes is sure getting work these days. Ritchson and Cavill were great.

Just finished it and thought it was great! Definite Inglorious Basterds feel.

To bad it did so poorly at the box office.

Yeah, I thought this was kind of dull. For a men-on-a-mission movie there was pretty much zero tension. The girl was glared at menacingly by Til Schweiger and one guy got shot in the shoulder, but otherwise it was just Henry Cavil and friends going around and mowing down Nazis with silenced machine guns with little to no resistance. This should have been an incredible story given the real life history of it all, but instead it just felt really slight and inconsequential.

Relative to Ritchie's recent output, I'd say it slots behind Wrath of Man, The Gentlemen and the Covenant. It's a more competently put together movie than Operation Fortune, which was kind of a mess, but I thought Operation Fortune was more fun overall. I didn't know. It just didn't work for me.

Saw this on the week of release.

Although Director Guy Ritchie's 121-minute Nazi-stomping romp is entertaining & (surprisingly) breezy, it isn't anything all that memorable.

Henry Cavill & Alan Ritchson absolutely steal every scene they are a part of though.

This was fun and entertaining, as long as you didn't think about it too much. For example:
Spoiler:
Once they were on the boat that's loaded with fuel and ammo, why couldn't they just blow it up from the inside?
