Trivia

The movie was scheduled for release in 2016 but was pushed back to 2017 because of the possible conflict and confusion with Anthropoid (2016), starring Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan, which tells the same story of Operation Anthropoid, the mission to assassinate Nazi leader Reinhard Heydrich, and which was released late summer 2016.

Goofs

During the first assault by the Germans on the church, one of the resistance fighters can be seen firing a Bren gun at the attackers, its distinctive, curved top mounted magazine being clearly visible. In the brief lull after the initial attack has been repulsed, the weapon now has a straight magazine and is in fact a Czech ZB-30 light machine gun, a forerunner of the Bren. See more »

Disjointed telling of the Butcher of Prague story
3 January 2018 | by Phil006See all my reviews

Solid performances all round (Jason Clarke is excellent!) However, movie should have fleshed out the Heydrich / Butcher of Prague story more rather than re-telling the post death aftermath - an angle already covered by the Cillian Murphy/Jamie Doran movie (Antripoid). Their (brilliant) movie told from the perspective of the Czech Assasins.

If you really want to see a movie about Heydrich (and the lead up to the "Final Solution of the Jewish Question"), watch "Conspiracy", the Kenneth Brannagh/Stanley Tucci TV movie. SHOCKING!
