Sean Ellis Czech Republic, 2016

melly's rating of the film Anthropoid

Well-shot war thriller about an interesting subject, but unfortunately the movie overall is as stale as they come. The characters and script are particularly cookie-cutter, and moving moments are only moving for their basic shock value (innocents bloodied, heroes tortured, loved ones forced to watch, etc). Shame, as I'm sure the headline actors could have handled something a bit more complex.
