Riveting thriller. True story, so a deeply moving experience for the audience, too. (by bopdog)
I remember this event from my childhood. It was the excellent trailer that took me to the opening day today. It is a REALLY outstanding movie. It is so good that when I think back on it, my mind goes ahead and wishfully inserts supreme actor Liev Schreiber into the cast he wasn't in it, however - D'oh! . It's that kind of good.The movie is dramatic and intense, the suspense approaches "unbearable" but not quite . One striking feature is there are no histrionics. No manly men bang tables and shout heroic things. That type of hitting the audience over the head with Drama <more>
with a capital "D" is unrealistic anyway - and very corny. Here everyone acts like real people. Life happens in speaking voices. And yet, without the melodrama the tension the suspense keeps getting wound tighter and tighter - just from the natural circumstances of the commandos' mission. That's how the movie could feel so natural, and how we could get into it so deeply and effortlessly. The plot is unexpected, and even a bit outlandish. It is a true story, though, so one gets the sense of deeper meaning, rather than just some dumb action movie, where the director jacks up the suspense and thrills just to please 14-year-old boys. In fact, there isn't much traditional war movie or thriller style movie action - but it is fast-paced. I saw Mile 22 last week, and liked it, but that was mere button-pushing and manipulated adrenaline. That has its place. This movie, on the other hand, managed to twist me up into knots of anxiety, even though I KNEW THE ENDING; the outcome is historical fact. Didn't matter - I was on the edge of my seat the entire time.When it was over I felt as if I had a deeper understanding of something fundamental about humans. I had a meaningful experience of humanity. I was thoroughly "entertained" - actually, more like riveted.
Some could say it is a slow pace. After watching phony action heros, probably true. But, this movie follows the time line of the actual events where the Israeli Nazi hunters bumble, stumble but finally find Eichmann, the Nazi's architect of the Holocaust, hiding in Argentina. Flashbacks to Nazi atrocities under Eichmann and others bring more urgency to the hunt. From the time the team enters Buenos Aires, tension mounts until the final conclusion. I recall as a boy watching the news clips of the trial of Eichmann in 1961 and this movie puts it all together for a compelling spy thriller <more>
and piece of history. Good acting, writing, pacing and locations.
Operation Finale is about the carefully planned extraction of Adolf Eichmann in his hiding place Argentina by a team of Mossad agents in 1960, so that he could be tried for engineering the Final Solution and for the deaths of 6 million people during the Holocaust. However, this extraction proves to be complicated, as various roadblocks face the Israeli team and delay Eichmann's delivery. This is a phenomenally acted and well made thriller. Despite having almost no action, the film manages to be quite nerve-wracking throughout. It almost felt like a real life Mission: Impossible, except <more>
without the crazy action or over-the-top villain. It's truly amazing what these men and women were able to accomplish under so much pressure. Almost everything that could go wrong was thrown at them, but through courage and some small sacrifices, they succeeded. What's truly great about this movie more than anything is careful attention the portrayal of these people. Although some characters are put on the sideline, all of them feel like real human beings. Which is good, considering that these people were real and actually captured the Architect of the Holocaust. The two stars are definitely Mossad team leader Peter Malkin Oscar Issacs and the Nazi maniac himself, Adolf Eichmann Ben Kingsley . When the movie focuses on developing these two complex people of different backgrounds is where I think the movie excels the most. This is especially the case when we see them talking to each other, which is a large part of the second half. There's just this depth to both of them that makes some of the slower paced scenes where the two are conversing more intriguing. They are two people with different motivations and values if you can even say one of them has any values who have crossed paths and have to deal with one another for an unbearably extended period of time. Although many scenes are dialogue-focused, the film manages to build a steady amount of tension. It's not the EXTREME intensity that movies like Dunkirk or Mission: Impossible build up. Rather, it's more akin to a movie that came out almost 3 years ago: Bridge of Spies I actually think they referenced the events that take place in that during Operation Finale . The tension does not rely on action scenes; it instead relies on its uneasy atmosphere and the fact that this threat was real to make the movie massively entertaining. And even if you're not feeling the intensity like I was, it will still be a very intriguing story. I mean, these were real spies! This was a real mission! So much was depending on these brave souls, and it truly is remarkable how they were able to capture the man who designed a method of killing millions of their people. And all of pieces for the jigsaw puzzle that is a great movie fit when considering that the performances of these two are some of the best I've seen all year. Ben Kingsley deserves at least a nomination for his thoroughly creepy performance of Eichmann. Oscar Issacs was also spectacular as the lead but simply can't rival Sam Claflin in Journey's End . The supporting cast also nailed it, making it one of the most solid ensembles of actors and actresses I've seen all year. Even Nick Kroll was surprisingly great and believable.A few final things I enjoyed were the cinematography and score. The way this movie was shot truly helps it stand out believe it or not. I'd go into it more, but I don't want to bore some people. Just see for yourself. And the score was surprisingly more interesting than I thought it would be. Many movies unfortunately have bland scores, but fortunately, Alexandre Desplat made a unique and intriguing score that you will probably be hearing more of come Oscar season. Also, this is unrelated to the quality of the film, but I also was happy to see a portrayal of Israel in film right after I visited it this summer. You must visit it if you can; it's truly a remarkable experience.I can't recommend this one enough. This is a story that is worth telling and a movie that is worth supporting in its box office run. This is a perfect movie for history buffs like me, so I might be a little biased and also those who simply want to learn about this incredible story.
Isaac and Kinglsey both give fantastic and memorable performances. I predict serious Oscar consideration for both. A well told story based on true events that even though you know how it ended historically, still keeps you on the edge of your seat.

If you appreciate history, you will appreciate this movie. You learn in the very beginning that there will be little action when Malkin says if shots are fired we've already failed. The whole mission was to be covert. Ben Kingsley portrays the perfect sociopath which you will see towards the end. Excellent acting by all.
A short, non-spoiler review. (by karlox_s)
I'd strongly recommend to watch this movie to anyone interested in seeing amazing performances within a great thriller, and even more, based on a historical event that's described exactly as it happened.I've read other reviews where the viewer complained about the fact that some parts look pushed, or exaggerated, so the director could achieve his goal. Well, no, after watching it I simply couldn't believe how faithful to the real events the movie was. All of those "near misses" and bits that make this movie full of suspense are indeed true. Even more so, I could <more>
recommend you to read all the articles and books on how everything happened but that'd take you a lot of time, something precious that you can save by just watching this extremely good 2hr movie.Hope you enjoy it, and may you all have a nice day.
Operation Finale is a somber film about the plan to kidnap Adolph Eichmann. As you no doubt know, Eichmann was the architect of the Final Solution...the killing of 6 million Jews. We're taken inside the planning of the kidnapping and implementation of the plan. There isn't a great deal of action, but the character development is outstanding. Lovers of history will thoroughly enjoy this true story.
It's the Finale Countdown (by rgkarim)
History teaches us many lessons, but sadly we sometimes are still too stubborn to learn when it things come wrapped in a convenient, shiny package. Still, there are movies still trying to use their bucks to teach lessons in the tales they have to share. Tonight, yours truly attended the showing of the latest historical, biography, drama that hopes to make a mark. What is in store? As always please read to find out as I review: Movie: Operation Finale 2018 Director: Chris Weitz Writer: Matthew Orton Stars: Oscar Isaac, Ben Kingsley, Mélanie LaurentLIKES: Pacing: For the most part, a drama <more>
like this is often slower than the movies I prefer, yet Operation Finale managed to meet this expectation. A brisk pace that allowed for detail, the audience was more than capable of finding that balance to tell it's tale and not leave me falling asleep. The Class: A Holocaust movie always runs the risk of diving into the dark, deep end of the horror pool, which can be hard to watch. Again, Weltz and his team found the balance of making references to the horrible event, but adding a filter that alludes to the event without showing too much. The result is crafting a piece of work that respectfully shows the events, but not in the distasteful display that many movies relish in. As such, it doesn't downplay the significance it, but rather integrates into the story. The Relevance of Characters: A stuffed group into 2 hours is not easy to do, but Operation Finale made sure to integrate as many of the characters as possible and give a point to their inclusion. No matter how small the role, each character has contributed to the operation in some manner to warrant their time on the silver screen. The History/Moral Lesson: The movie set out to teach lessons, and it certainly did. History comes in a variety of forms, but this movie certainly felt like a visual book yes I get the irony , still it's an integrated piece of work that achieves the story telling history strives to obtain. And like history, the moral lessons involves are poetically delivered without all the preachy planned speeches Hollywood writers love. It's the realism and musical score that drive all these lessons home, and a fantastic future for using this movie for teaching classes. The Acting: The movie's bread and butter though is the acting. Character integration required a lot of dynamic play off of each other, and our cast was up to the challenge of bringing it to life. At this point, all the secondary/supporting characters get a nod for their work, each member feeling like a part of the team that held their own emotional charge towards the common goal. However, the key pillars of the movie are Ben Kingsley and Oscar Isaac the leads of the film. Isaac trades his X-Wing uniform for a more modest suit, and adapts the strong emotional power of an Israeli Jewish man forced to confront a lot of baggage. It's realistic, powerful, and the anchor to which much of the movie relies on and he rocks it. As for Kingsley, the man is a legend for a reason and he beautifully opens the door of the antagonist role and the complexity that can come with it. Another balance of emotional prowess, the man will keep you guessing at what lies within the dark mind of the German War Elite. The two together play a game of cat and mouse, and while not filled with gun play, or car chases, it's this emotional tug of war that is immersive and kept me into the drama at hand. Bravo to the casting director for bringing these powerhouses together. DISLIKES: The Pace at times: Pacing is mostly good, but there are some slower moments that didn't have quite the oomph that the rest of the movie did. These parts bloated the movie more and didn't quite deliver the punch for me. Small dislike, but it leads me to the next limitation for me. The Length: The movie worked to portray a lot of angles on this historical event. Operation Finale didn't quite need to be over 2 hours for me, with probably at least 20 minutes being edited out with ease. I see where it is going with the length to try and pay homage to those who lost their lives to the greatest tragedy, but in regards to the story it didn't quite need the extra time. Especially, when it comes to my next dislike. The Other Character Stories: A lot of characters were introduced at the beginning, each played up for their emotional struggles to bring the former Nazi to justice. And after a prolonged intro, many of the characters kind of stopped there. Operation Finale showed potential for very deep characters, and while the leads got the most dive into the psyche, the rest of the cast kind of got a fly over. More integration and struggle would have been much appreciated for me to help further bring the group to life. It's not that the others were bad, but by explaining them a little more, the movie might have better utilized the 2 hours it had to have. While the secondary crew accomplished their mission, some more tweaking could have strengthened things. THE VERDICT: For a historical drama. Operation Finale was one of the better ones to grace the silver screen in recent years. While nothing like the legendary historical dramas that came before it, this film struck a balance I appreciated between historical presentation and dramatizing moments. The two lead actors soared with their chemistry and by working around this entropy favored performance, brought the heart and soul of the cinematic work to life. Still, the movie needs a little tweaking in investing in other characters to justify being greater than 2 hours as well as editing a few things out. Still, this movie is probably a great example of classic story telling, and that element justifies the theater visit despite a lack of Big Screen effects. Still, give this one a try when you can, I think you will enjoy it. My scores are: Biography/Drama/History: 8.0 Movie Overall: 7.0
Rarely does Hollywood do justice to history when Tinseltown presents its version of events. "Braveheart" is a notable example. However, OF is the rare work that mainly sticks to the actual facts of Israel's Mossad intelligence agents' journey to Argentina to extract one of the most wanted Nazi criminals following WW2. The film does avoid the human dramatics found in a majority of period movies, but I don't think that diminishes the impactfullness of the main story.I read about Adolph Eichmann and the efforts to bring the Nazi to Israel to stand trial. OF hits all the <more>
main points of the operation without too much embellishments. Near escapes and a love story are inserted in the plot, but incredibly the movie stays true to the 1960 operation. What I loved about OF, and the point was driven home for me viewing the closing credits showing clips of the actual trial of Eichmann, was the relationship between the German/Austrian and Oscar Isaac, playing the Mossad agent who lost his sister to the Nazi monster. Seeing the real Eichmann, resembling a meek college professor instead of some brute, I understood how Matthew Orton, the scriptwriter, spent a considerable amount of time in the second half to show the communication between Ben Kingsley, playing Eichmann, and Isaac. Despite the agent wanting to kill Kinglsey several times, he had a moments of disbelief that such a man in front of him was capable of running the system exterminating untold numbers of the Jewish population. That, to me, was the most fascinating aspect of the film, watching the interplay between the two.
