When the parachutists are in the aircraft prior making their jump into Czechoslovakia, a 'waist mount' heavy machine gun position can be seen to the right with the weapon pointing out of the plane halfway along the fuselage. In the following external shot the aircraft is revealed to be an Avro Lancaster. These were fitted with nose, tail and dorsal gun turrets, but not fuselage mounted waist gun positions. See more »
Great movie! In my view the cast was very important in the charms of the movie. Jason Clarke was the perfect person for the role of Reinhard Heydrich. The way he acts is giving you sympathy for the person he play, meanwhile you don't want this sympathy feeling for this person. This internal sense of feeling gives the film a continuous tension from begin to end. In my view the abstract scene's always got some details in it, this makes that no scene is boring to watch. I personally like the movie build up, very well done.
