Did You Know?


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.

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 »

The tale of two movies.
11 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

Let me just start out by saying that this movie is literally two separate movies, that are merely tied together by a brief moment. The first half half was engrossing, rich in character development, and extremely well paced.

Without spoiling anything, I would just like to say that I would have given the first half of this movie an 8 or 9. Unfortunately for whatever reason they decided to tell a story that was a great injustice to the quality cinema that was setup. In the end you get the same story that Cillian Murphy trudged through almost scene for scene recently. If you are a fan of the pervious movie, and want another take on the situation, I do recommend at least watching this film for the first half. Otherwise it has been done before, and much better in all aspects.
