Credible acting portraying characters based upon real events. I had never heard of this event or the assassination attempt on SS General Reinhard Heydrich, and found this film to be methodical and tense. Captures the dramatic desperation that the Czechoslovakian resistance felt under Nazi Germany during occupation starting in 1938.
Major parts played well by Cillian Murphy (Free Fire: 2016, Peaky Blinders: tv: 2013 - 2017), Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades of Grey series: 2015, 2017 & 2018), and many of the supporting actors/actresses.
Like the 2008 Valkyrie film, depicting the assassination attempt on Hitler, this film spends more time on the preparation and post cost, than any on screen shooting.
There is on screen type introducing the factual events and following the film as well. There is no extras on the DVD.
