Operation Fortune: Ruse de guerre Trailer
Operation Fortune: Ruse de guerre trailer is a roller coaster ride of seriousness, fun, crime, friendships, fights, laughter, and more. The trailer brings to us ‘cars flipping and blasting’ kind of action, dialogues whipped with sarcasm and wit, and a constant fun vibe. Jason Statham’s serious spy vibe gets balanced by Josh Hartnett’s Bollywood superstar character with his goofy and funny attitude. The dialogue is pretty impressive based on the remarks made throughout the trailer by each and every character in the story.
It isn’t an all-serious super-spy movie with poker-faced agents, ruthless machine gunfights, and underlying feeling of impending war but a highly entertaining project which will deal with aspects like team management, responsibilities, friendship, love, loyalty, and more.
