Stars: Oscar Isaac, Ben Kingsley, Mélanie Laurent, Lior Raz, Nick Kroll, Michael Aronov, Ohad Knoller, Greg Hill, Torben Liebrecht, Michael Benjamin Hernandez, Joe Alwyn, Greta Scacchi, Peter Strauss, Haley Lu Richardson | Written by Matthew Orton | Directed by Chris Weitz

In 1960 a team of secret agents, led by Mossad agent Peter Malkin, set out to track down Adolf Eichmann, the Nazi officer who masterminded the transportation logistics that brought millions of innocent Jews to their deaths in concentration camps during the Holocaust…

Director Chris Weitz’s Operation Finale follows the haunting and terrifying true story of a team of Israeli secret service agents and their tense mission to identify and extract Adolf Eichmann, an architect of the Holocaust who escaped justice and fled to Argentina. Weitz film while almost perfectly evokes such a perfect 1960′s cinematic aesthetic and utilises a terrific cast, does little to showcase the haunting and intense thriller

Operation Finale Review: Nazi Hunters Provide Late Summer Heroics

Operation Finale recounts the capture of Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann by Israeli intelligence agents. The film is solid on several fronts, particularly the performances from lead actors Oscar Isaac and Ben Kingsley. The problem is that Operation Finale never achieves the gravitas of its subject matter. The Holocaust's magnitude is superseded by the mechanics of spycraft. More emphasis on the enormity of this heinous crime was needed. Eichmann's involvement is just too narrowly depicted. Operation Finale should have drawn the curtains further back on Eichmann's murderous activities.

Operation Finale opens in 1954 with Israeli intelligence, the Mossad, searching for Eichmann (Ben Kingsley) in Europe. Led by Peter Malkin (Oscar Isaac), their efforts bear no fruit. Eichmann has vanished. Six years later in Argentina, a fleeting romance between two teenagers leads to a surprising revelation. Eichmann and his family are hiding in the country under false pretenses.

The Israeli government needs Eichmann alive.

“Operation Finale” matches Oscar Isaac with Ben Kingsley

Once upon a time, Ben Kingsley gave his career best performance in Schindler’s List. Fast forward to 2018, and he’s actually playing a member of the Nazi high command. That’s a total 180, but if any actor can pull that off, it’s Kingsley. The Academy Award winning thespian has not had the best roles to play of late, but this week, he has a solid one to sink his teeth into. It’s Operation Finale, a dramatic retelling of a true life spy operation in the 1960’s. If it won’t be another Oscar player for Kingsley, it at least gives him one of his best roles in some time, and that’s worth something. The movie is an historical thriller, as you might have guessed. This is the plot summary available for it: “Fifteen years after the end of World War II, a team of top-secret Israeli

Boogeyman Pop Trailer Is Drenched in Skull-Crushing Depravity

Boogeyman Pop Trailer Is Drenched in Skull-Crushing Depravity
The Boogeyman Pop teaser trailer is here. The upcoming horror anthology was produced independently and was made on a shoestring budget. When the movie was roughly 75 percent through filming, they had spent just $75 thousand, which, as director Brad Michael Elmore puts it, is the catering budget on many movies. Now, the general public is getting a look at what Elmore cooked up with this first full teaser, which looks like it's going to be bizarre, bloody and quite possibly a lot of fun.

This teaser is loaded with blood and trippy imagery. It's pretty tough to get a grip on the larger story at play, but there's a creepy maniac wielding a bat killing young folks and there are some supernatural elements at play. The synthy 80s score is also doing the footage some serious favors. The music comes courtesy of the band The Wolfmen of Mars, for those who

‘Operation Finale’ Trailer: Ben Kingsley, Oscar Isaac Spar In Adolf Eichmann Capture Thriller

‘Operation Finale’ Trailer: Ben Kingsley, Oscar Isaac Spar In Adolf Eichmann Capture Thriller
“We’re all animals,” says Sir Ben Kingsley’s Adolf Eichmann in this intense trailer for Operation Finale. “Some of us just have bigger teeth than others.”

So it goes in director Chris Weitz’s thriller about the Israeli “catch and extract” operation in Argentina to bring to justice the chief architect of Hitler’s Holocaust.

This trailer – the last look at the thriller before MGM releases the film in theaters on Wednesday, August 29 – highlights, among other aspects of the movie, the psychological battle of wills between Kingsley’s Eichmann and Oscar Isaac’s Peter Malkin, one of the Israeli agents tasked with capturing the Nazi.

In exchanges that recall the evil mind games from classics like The Silence of the Lambs and The Exorcist, Eichmann, sounding like evil incarnate, tells Isaac’s agent, “My job was simple: save the country I love from being destroyed. Is your job any different?

Mossad Spy Thriller ‘Operation Finale’ Moves Up To Labor Day Weekend

  • Deadline
Exclusive: MGM’s Operation Finale, which follows a team of secret agents in their pursuit of Holocaust Nazi architect Adolf Eichmann 15 years after World War II, is moving up from its Sept. 14 opening to August 29, the Wednesday before the four-day Labor Day stretch.

We hear the film tested quite well in the mid 80s in the top two boxes in a Los Angeles-area screening, but tested through the roof in the high 90s elsewhere in the country. Labor Day is a prime time when upscale and older audiences head to the cinema, and with Operation Finale‘s new date, it gives the Chris Weitz-directed movie a jump on the crowded fall awards season competition.

Other notable adult-oriented pics that launched over Labor Day include The Constant Gardener ($33.5M domestic, plus four Oscar noms and a best supporting actress win for Rachel Weisz), George Clooney thriller The American ($35.6M), John Hillcoat

Oscar Isaac Fights Nazis in First Trailer for ‘Operation Finale’

MGM has released their first trailer for Operation Finale, a post-World War II period thriller staring Ben Kingsley and Oscar Isaac. Kingsley plays Adolf Eichmann who, as described in the trailer as “Hitler’s deadliest lieutenant,” was personally responsible for overseeing the transportation and subsequent murder of millions of innocent Jews during the Holocaust. Taking place after the conclusion of World War II, the film tells the incredible true story of Israel’s intelligence service – the Mossad – and their plan to “catch and extract” the fleeing Eichmann from Argentina. Isaac plays Mossad operative Peter Malkin who’s assigned to execute said operation – and he feels the weight of mission as he’s warned in the trailer: “If you succeed, for the first time in our history, we will judge our executioner. If you fail, he escapes justice, perhaps forever. I beg of you, do not fail.”

Operation Finale Trailer Has Oscar Isaac Hunting a Nazi Officer

Operation Finale Trailer Has Oscar Isaac Hunting a Nazi Officer
The first trailer for Operation Finale is here. WWII dramas have been a staple of cinema pretty much ever since the war ended. While they often turn out to be great cinematic experiences, it also seems like we're getting to a point where many of these stories have been told. Then something like this comes along that promises to tell a very different kind of war story on the big screen. This movie actually takes place years after the war, but deals with tying up one of the most heinous and important loose ends that needed tying up. It's very early, but this looks like the kind of movie that could have Oscar buzz written all over it.

This trailer is a bit understated in some ways. This isn't a war movie in the typical sense. While we may see some flashback battle sequences, this is a movie that focuses
