Although the title sounds like a futuristic sci-fi creature, it was actually the code name for Reinhard Heydrich, the Nazi architect behind the Final Solution. This fact-based story follows 2 operatives (Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan) who are assigned to assassinate him in their native Czechoslovakia. Their mission plays out primarily thru whispers and furtive glances, but there are 2 mildly tense, but not especially gripping, encounters. The cinematography and design attractively create a period atmosphere and the actors are all fine. It’s an interesting story and well told, but almost every scene goes on longer than necessary, especially some of the dramatic discussions.

 

3 out of 5 stars (3 / 5)
