Amazing and Underrated Classic
10 June 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Atentát fallows events leading up to the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich, the Grerman Reichsprotektor of Bohemia & Moravia , during WWII.

The film is absolutely astounding! It is not often that you see a film that really entertains you, and leaves your expectations completely surpassed. The plot moves forward with the speed, precision, and intensity of a Robert Ludlum story. The actors are perfect in their roles and in their interactions with one another. The actor who most stands out is Siegfried Loyda, as the terrifying epitome of Nazism, Heydrich. The cinematography creates a bleak and Gothic look that is extremely powerful, and has not become dated at all. The music is incredibly exhilarating, and the use of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony in the end of the film is enough to give one goosebumps.

The action and suspense is incredibly intense. The siege in the church at the very end will impress even the most jaded of movie viewers. It is perfect for anyone who wants to see a good action/espionage film or a captivating and accurate historical film.
