(2018) (Oscar Isaac, Ben Kingsley) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Dramatic Thriller: Israeli agents attempt to find, capture and extract an infamous Nazi officer -- responsible for countless deaths in the Holocaust during WWII -- from Argentina to make him stand trial in Israel.
- It's 1960 and Israel's intelligence agency, Mossad, has received word that infamous Nazi officer Adolf Eichmann (BEN KINGSLEY) might be living under an alias in Argentina with a wife and young adult son, Klaus (JOE ALWYN), who tells everyone that he's the man's nephew. With intel gathered by a young woman, Sylvia Hermann (HALEY LU RICHARDSON), who befriends Klaus, Mossad officer Isser Harel (LIOR RAZ) puts together a small team to find, capture and extract Eichmann from the country. While most of them would like to see the Nazi dead, their orders are to capture and bring him back to Israel to stand trial for his direct involvement with the countless deaths in the Holocaust during WWII.
The team includes -- but isn't limited to -- Peter Malkin (OSCAR ISAAC) who lost a sister in the Holocaust, and his former girlfriend, physician Hanna Regev (MELANIE LAURENT), who's reluctant to go on another such mission, what with having lost a target in the past from too much anesthesia. Others include Rafi Eitan (NICK KROLL); Ephraim Ilian (OHAD KNOLLER); Moshe Tabor (GREG HILL), the most volatile of the bunch; and Zvi Aharoni (MICHAEL ARONOV) who serves as the interrogator and the only face that Eichmann will see in the safe house they're using.
Working in a tight time window and needing Eichmann to sign a letter authorizing his removal, the team does what they can to make that happen, with Peter secretly breaking protocol by getting to know the man, hoping to get him to sign. At the same time, they must contend with Nazi sympathizers, led by the powerful local official, Carlos Fuldner (PÊPÊ RAPAZOTE), who try to find and rescue Eichmann.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- Unless they're interested in the real story or are fans of someone in the cast, it doesn't seem that likely.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
- For disturbing thematic content and related violent images, and for some language.
