World War II thriller co-written and directed by Sean Ellis. As part of a dangerous mission to assassinate high-ranking SS General Reinhard Heydrich (Detlef Bothe), Czechoslovakian soldiers Jozef Gabcík (Cillian Murphy) and Jan Kubis (Jamie Dornan) are parachuted into their German-occupied homeland in December 1941. After being assigned Marie (Charlotte Le Bon) and Lenka (Anna Geislerová) to pose as their partners as part of their cover story, the two men set about planning the crucial operation. However, with limited intelligence and little equipment available, the men are soon overwhelmed by fear as the Germans close in and the true scale of their assignment becomes clear.

It is a brilliant film ,telling of bravery ,tyranny and mans fight against the Nazi regime.
It's a true story that shouldn't be forgotten and this film ensures that we don't forget what the Czech people had to live with.
Well worth watching.
The postscripts are particularly poignant. The Nazis murdered every family member they could find of each person they suspected of helping the commandos.
The film highlights the extreme bravery of the ordinary citizens helping the resistance and the commandos.
An informing and very moving film, showing due respect to these heroes
It's a delicate story, which if it had succeeded would have no doubt changed the outcome of the war.
All I can say is excellent attention to detail, and well acted. Would highly recommend.
Nazi leader Reinhard Heydrich in Prague in 1942.
Two soldiers Jan Kubis and Jozef Gabcik played by Jamie Dornan and Cillian Murphy lead an excellent
cast depicting the event which is now part of Czech wartime history.
The film is similar to the earlier Operation Daybreak, but Sean Ellis direction will have you on the edge
of your seat in this retelling of the story.
The torture scenes are pretty horrific but nothing compared to what the real Czech people of the day
actually suffered in reprisals.
Well worth watching.

I have watched this film numerous times and have never failed to be moved by the horror of the time and the immense cruelty of the Nazi regime.
Sensitive script, acting, direction, and a feeling of really being there ( if you know what I mean)?
After watching this film I searched the Net to obtain books to learn more about this incident and its terrible consequences.
This is not a film to brighten up your day, but one which will make you thank the men and women who gave their lives to make our lives that so much better.
