Anthropoid (2016) Rated R

Based on the true story of the Operation Anthropoid mission during World War II and the plan to assassinate SS General Reinhard Heydrich, the third in command in the Third Reich. Starring Jamie Dornan, Cillian Murphy, and Brian Caspe.

This plot is something I’ve never heard of when learning about the Second World War. The film does a wonderful job at telling the history of the Czech’s help in fighting against the Nazis. The film is well-acted, especially by Dornan and Murphy. Except for a struggle with the accents, they were able to pull off the Czech heroes. The pacing does need some work as the film starts slow and moves to the action of the Nazi’s brutal fighting. This is a film that needs to be seen; it’s worth it.
