On the bright side, the acting was not that bad. However, given the importance of the subject matter, I wish the writers, producers and directors took it a little more seriously. The most distracting thing about the movie was that they turned what was originally based on a fascinating true story into silly fiction. For instance, of all the vile things the Nazi war criminal did, what he is portrayed as remembering the most is the murder of the sister (and her baby) of the man who captured him, supposedly out of pure coincidence. In addition, the scenes regarding the plane being delayed on the runway, and taking off at the last second, seemed cliché at best (not to mention cut and paste from Argo). They also threw in a fake story line about a sexual relationship between two of the characters because once you go off the rails, why not? It was if they assumed their audience wanted mindless blockbuster gimmicks rather than to gain insight into the mind of a madman, and what makes one grow into a monster. It could have been so much more. Instead, they made it historically inaccurate and easily forgettable.
I've been fascinated by the (real) history of Eichmann in Argentina for years now and I was really expecting a movie that I could at least finish watching. They basically disregarded all the interesting bits of history and put amazing emphasis on those parts of the storyline that are clearly invented (by a teenager on steroids, I would add). It's a failed attempt to make a mixture of history and action that won't appeal to fans of either genres. This is technically a three star movie, but I'm giving one because of the unbelievable waste of an incredible cinema-ready story.
Knowing my history, I knew they were going to catch him. The pacing of this overly long movie was rough. sound was at times unintelligble A great deal was made of making Eichmann sign a paper , going back to be on trial voluntarily. This was pure fiction.. They could have included his testimony while in the glass cage.. THat would have been dramatic
The story of Eichmann does not need dramatic elements added. The movie distorts history to make it more exciting. People will learn much less from watching it than they could have and should have.
The acting is fine but the movie's mostly pretty dull. The thing that got me the most is that they seemed to be trying to combine Eichmann with Himmler as there were some serious historical inaccuracies in the film. Adolf Eichmann was not the 'architect of the Holocaust' - that was without a doubt a combination of Hitler and Himmler with the assistance of Heydrich. Also, Eichmann NEVER attended the shootings of the Einsatzgruppen. Himmler, however, did and it was direct exposure to these atrocities that caused him to reconsider the manner in which the Jews were dealt with - and purely to protect the mental state of his men. and not those being shot in pits. As others have stated I thought the whole central focus on the sister and the killing of her children was a bit daft, and the part where the van rear doors were opened up and a literal flood of Jewish corpses were exposed was bizarre. I know this was intended to show the operation of the gas vans, but the implication that people were wedged into the back of these in tiered layers was just off the charts mental. So, essentially the movie was pretty dull, the acting fine, but they certainly didn't make the most of the story of Eichmann. As someone else stated they'd have been better concentrating on the trial itself and his statements about the Nazi regime.
