Goofs

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 »

Fantastic
9 August 2016 | by KALLISTUARTSee all my reviews

Mission - To assassinate a top ranking Nazi Officer, Reinhard Heydrich. Not many films leave me feeling this much emotion.. so much so, I felt the need to write my 2nd review in around 5 years! I thought the casting was an interesting choice and Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan didn't disappoint but I really loved Anna Geislerova. Although most of the action is towards the end of the film, the lead up to the events gave a good insight to the characters which I find some films lack as they are too busy concentrating on special effects, rather than getting to know the characters. . I found myself holding my breath on many occasions! A truly gripping finale and I will definitely be watching this again.
