ANTHROPOID is based on the extraordinary true story of Operation Anthropoid, the World War II mission to assassinate SS General Reinhard Heydrich. The Reich's third in command after Hitler and Himmler, Heydrich was the main architect behind the Final Solution and the leader of occupying Nazi forces in Czechoslovakia whose reign of terror prompted self-exiled Czech and Slovak soldiers (played by Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan) to hatch a top-secret mission that would change the face of Europe forever.iWritten by
It is coincidence that the original floor tiles from the real Moravec apartment have a design that resembles a Nazi swastika. The design was copied by the art department and used on the floor of the Moravec's set - The tiles can be seen clearly in the scene where Mrs. Moravcová is interrogated by the Gestapo. See more »
When the boy Ata is making a cross in the church he is doing this incorrectly. If he is Roman Catholic he should go from forehead to sternum to left shoulder then right shoulder. If he is Eastern orthodox he would have to go from forehead to navel then right shoulder then left shoulder. He does it from forehead to sternum to right shoulder ten left shoulder. This is not used in any form of christianity. See more »

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
