Based on the extraordinary true story of Operation Anthropoid, this powerful drama stars Cillian Murphy (The Dark Knight) and Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades of Grey) as two Czechoslovakian soldiers sent to Prague for a deadly mission: to kill Hitler’s third in command, the main architect behind the Final Solution, Reinhard Heydrich. Outmanned and facing impossible odds, the two men lead a group of Czech rebels toward a near-impossible mission that may change the course of history forever. Also starring Toby Jones (Infamous), ANTHROPOID is an intense, thought-provoking thriller.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: Anthropoid completes its mission rather unevenly but delivers a historically illuminating story with great performances to back it up.

Common Sense Says
Depressing, dull, violent take on a true WWII story.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Anthropoid is a World War II story about the real-life attempted assassination of Nazi leader Reinhard Heydrich. The movie has very strong violence, including shooting, explosions, bloody wounds, blood spatters and puddles, and death. Multiple characters commit suicide, either via gunshots to the head or cyanide capsules. There are brief but gruesome Nazi torture scenes that include breaking a boy's fingers and showing him a woman's severed head in a bucket. One brief suggested sex scene shows a man getting dressed near a woman who's in bed; there's also some kissing. Characters smoke cigarettes frequently (accurate for the time period), but language is minimal, with the German "scheisse" ("s--t") used a few times and "whore" used once. Though the movie is depressing and dull, the core story is important, and it could be worthy of discussion.
