Trivia

The movie was scheduled for release in 2016 but was pushed back to 2017 because of the possible conflict and confusion with Anthropoid (2016), starring Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan, which tells the same story of Operation Anthropoid, the mission to assassinate Nazi leader Reinhard Heydrich, and which was released late summer 2016.

User Reviews

A strong first half but weak second half
11 October 2017 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film tells the story of the man who was in charge of hideous war crimes, i.e. The Extermination program, in Nazi Germany. A group of Czechoslovakian people try to rebel and attempt to assassinate him.

The first hour of the film is all about Reinhard, as he climbs up to the top with the most terrible policy. The film shows that many people are brutally murdered for no reason, and Reinhard has no passion or compassion for the victims. In fact, he has no feelings at all, even towards his wife. The story is engaging up to this point, and Rosamund Pike is great a well. However, in the second part of the film, the story is derailed to tell the story of the resistance force. I may have missed why the resistance fighters decide to stand up and fight, and indeed their background story. I don't feel any connection to them at all, and the sudden shift in the spotlight to the resistance fighter appear to be a distraction to me. The final scene at the church crypt is touching though.
