I was pleasantly surprised by Operation Mincemeat. This is a wonderfully entertaining film that tells the story of an amazing wartime intelligence operation.
The performances from Colin Firth and Matthew Macfadyen as Ewen Montagu and Charles Cholmondeley, respectively, are great. They bring such charm and wit to their characters while still conveying the weight of the situation they are in.
The film also does a great job at building tension as we wait to see if the plan will be successful or not. The visuals are stunning, giving us a real sense of what it was like during WWII.
Is It Worth Watching?
All in all, Operation Mincemeat is an excellent historical drama that will leave you on the edge of your seat until its thrilling conclusion. Definitely worth a watch.
