Movie Nation -
One of the best pictures of the year and the best movie of the summer.
Slant Magazine -
Director Sean Ellis's film offers a potent examination of the moral rectitude of resistance.
Screen International -
It is a testimony to the film's careful construction and honest intentions that you have become so engaged in the fate of the characters.
Village Voice -
It's all sickeningly accomplished, with incidents so tense and audacious that you might not have the headspace to wonder until afterwards, "Hey, wait, what was the point in grinding us through so many terrifying minutes of that?"
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 (Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan) to hatch a top-secret mission that would change the face of Europe forever.
