Based on the extraordinary true story of Operation Anthropoid, the WWII mission to assassinate SS General Reinhard Heydrich, the main architect behind the Final Solution and the Reich's third in command after Hitler and Himmler.
Director Brad Furman admired Robert Mazur's low-budget approach to undercover, designed to minimize bureaucratic meddling. Furman said: "Bob shaped this really intimate, personal operation, sort of like an independent film, which allowed him to do things his way. He pulled the strings and blew open a hole into all the corruption at BCCI and the cartels. That's why it became such a fascinating story to me and everybody else." See more »
The fake wedding at the end of the film occurred in October 1988, but the boxing match characters were seen watching earlier in the film happened in November 1988. The scene was probably meant to depict them watching the same two boxers' match in Miami in April 1988, but the clip used was from their rematch in Las Vegas later in the year. See more »
Roberto, I am glad you are here. But there is a part of me that wishes you hadn't taken that risk.
Without family or friends what kinda world it is be. There will be no reason to be alive. Hmm? It's a good day.

This is like a poor man's Donnie Brasco. It was cliché. It was expected. Things developed too quickly because of a mediocre edit. Cranston is always great, but his performance couldn't save this doomed film. This felt like a cliff notes version of a real film because the screenplay was poor.
All of the actors were very good, but it was a story not worth telling. We've seen this story before, but it was told much better every time. Everything was on the surface. The characters were unidimensional and wooden. Perhaps, the director should see a film like, Sicario and learn from that.
This was all style and no substance.
