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 (played by Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan) to hatch a top-secret mission that would change the face of Europe forever.iWritten by
Anthropoid means "resembling a human being in form". See more »
The opening text greatly oversimplifies the Munich crisis, and incorrectly states that Germany occupied the entire country of Czechoslovakia as a result. Germany never occupied all of Czechoslovakia, but only occupied the Czech lands of Bohemia-Moravia after having occupied the Sudetenland for approximately 7 months. Slovakia was allowed to retain nominal independence under a pro-fascist regime led by Slovak nationalist Jozef Tiso. The Czechoslovak government in exile placed great importance on showing that both Czechs and Slovaks rejected Nazism, which is why Josef Gabcik (played by Cillian Murphy) was made part of Operation Anthropoid.

It was amazing how this true story has been told in each detail. This is a great work and respect to all the staff.
All the actors delivered solid performance and I want to see them again all in other films. It was never boring and i know now better what really happened at this very important assault to a high Nazi leader.
The setting and atmosphere were perfectly created. God bless all the opponents who lost their lives. Don't miss it if you like war history. 8/10
