Based on the true story of how a rogue group of British ne’er-do-wells helped cripple the Nazi U-boat program in the early stages of World War II, this Guy Ritchie film is a solid action-adventure laced with comedy and oh-so-much violence (but it’s killing Nazis, so it’s okay). Henry Cavill leads the way as real-life hero Gus March-Phillipps, and his charisma, combined with Ritchie’s unique flair and a tight, smart script, make this one a clear winner. It’s a stand-up-and-cheer bit of bloody good fun.

4/5 stars
