When Samuel Goudsmit is talking to Moe Berg about Werner Heisenberg, he says that his parents were deported from Holland to the Auschwitz concentration camp. He appealed to Heisenberg for help but got no reply. He says he doesn't know if his parents are dead are alive. The movie did not answer this question, but unfortunately his parents were indeed murdered in the Auschwitz concentration camp. See more »
The slide at the opening says that in 1938, German scientists first split the atom, which is incorrect; that happened in 1919 by Rutherford, and others, including Fermi, followed. The German scientists were the first to split the uranium atom. See more »
There are going to be lovers and haters of this movie depending on your taste and how much you like to pick holes in the acting and plot. Picky people will find many in this movie.
With all the big name actors it had you would expect it to be at least good and for me it was, I enjoyed it and never once wanted to stop watching, for me that is a sign of a good movie.
Paul Rudd, who I don't always like as and actor was very good in this, the rest of the cast do a fine job, most are prominent actors who I expect to do well in any movie they are in.
The fact it is based on a true story can be either a benefit of hindrance depending on how the story is handled, this one was handled quite well in my opinion and while it will never win any awards it is worth watching.
Not a perfect movie, but good enough to watch more than once.
