As the German Fascists expand their borders, scorching Europe from end to end, two brave Czechs of the Resistance prepare for a suicide mission to assassinate Reinhard Heydrich, the hideous mastermind behind the "Final Solution".
1942: The Third Reich is at its peak. The Czech resistance in London decides to plan the most ambitious military operation of WWII: Anthropoid. Two young recruits in their late twenties, Jozef Gabcik and Jan Kubis, are sent to Prague to assassinate the most ruthless Nazi leader - Reich-protector Reinhard Heydrich, Head of the SS, the Gestapo, and the architect of the "Final Solution".Written by
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.

On the moment of the assassination of Heyndrich while the attacker with the Sten tries to fire and the weapon jams the camera turns to Reinhard as he reaches for his handgun. On the background we see the attacker with the homemade hand grenade already attacking. The scene is shown again in the next shot. See more »
Good intentions. and a reasonable result. admirable job from Rosamunde Pike and Jason Clarke. and something missing. petr-varak review defines the basic problem - HHhH is a movie containing more two films more than two parts. the biography of Heydrich remains a sketch , correct but superficial, reminding a resume. and the second part seems be remind of ~Antropoid~, not a bad fact, useful to remind the events from Prague of 1943. but , having the same pieces and the same story and tools , it is difficult to ignore the similitudes, more inspired presented in the first film. remembering a docu-drama, it has the gift to be good start point for discover the life and the work of Reinhard Heydrich.
