Henry Cavill Defends Guy Ritchie’s “hyperbole” for ‘The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare’

A muscular, buffed-up physique of six feet and one inch encapsulates Henry Cavill, who has found occult fame on-screen for his role as Superman and Netflix’s The Witcher.

Yet, when the cameras are not rolling, the British actor settles into his natural ways full of mannerisms that come from being a true gentleman. However, he would soon feature on the big screens with the Guy Ritchie directorial, The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare, and showcase complete antipodal mannerisms from his real self.

Centered around a pivotal point in the Second World War, the movie, at times, does differ from history, but there remain good reasons for it.

Henry Cavill admits Guy Ritchie going over the top in The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare

In two weeks, movie-goers worldwide will come face-to-face with the second feature-length collaboration as an actor-director between Henry Cavill and Guy Ritchie in The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare.

While the movie involves the narration of the heroics of the real-life Winston Churchill-led secret organization, the Special Operations Executive, the 40-year-old actor, in talks with extraTV, admitted fictionalizing a few details but defended it with “But, at the same time, it’s okay to have some fun with them”.

Cavill’s remarks stand to testify to Hollywood’s practice of tweaking historical scenes slightly for the enhancement of its narrative. Christopher Nolan did the same with Oppenheimer and thus, here is Guy Ritchie with his “hyperbole to the telling of this story” and adding flavor to the “bravery, heroism, and, madness of people like the SOE operatives”. Additionally, such deviations also make way for the movie to become fit for consumption by the masses and not turn into a historical documentary.

In the same round of talks, Henry Cavill also remarked about the true story appearing completely fictional even without any tweaks.

The unconventionality in The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare stands absolutely real

In its first trailer, released weeks down the line, Henry Cavill gave a surprising first look at his Major Gus March-Phillipps character. Sticking his tongue out, featuring unkempt hair, a twirly mustache, a rugged outlook, and an unhinged appearance, sent fans into a frenzy for the fan-favorite actor debuting his first-of-a-kind acting appearance. However, the descriptions fit the historical perspective, and, in reality; the group engaged in unconventional warfare.

Involving unorthodox tactics of espionage, sabotage, and guerilla warfare, the SOE group gave rise to today’s black operations. Thus, when Guy Ritchie proposed the same narratives to Henry Cavill for The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare, he brushed them off saying “Don’t be so ridiculous”. However, he too realized that “When you really look back at what happened, you realize quite how mad it was,” setting the stage for the movie’s plot to come to life.
