Trivia

The real Moravec apartment was considered as a location but deemed too small for production needs. It was re-designed and built on stage 4 at Barrandov studios. See more »

Goofs

At around 47:30 the character Josef Gabcík is shown shaving with a straight razor. He draws the blade at an angle of about 90 degrees to the skin. Just like with disposables, the blade of a straight razor needs to be held at about 30 degrees into the whiskers. What we're shown is a blade drawn at a right angle scraping the shaving cream off an already clean-shaven face. See more »

One of the best II world war stories shown
2 April 2018 | by Luigi Di PillaSee all my reviews

It was amazing how this true story has been told in each detail. This is a great work and respect to all the staff. All the actors delivered solid performance and I want to see them again all in other films. It was never boring and i know now better what really happened at this very important assault to a high Nazi leader. The setting and atmosphere were perfectly created. God bless all the opponents who lost their lives. Don't miss it if you like war history. 8/10
