“Anthropoid” is a historical war thriller film released in 2016. It is directed by Sean Ellis and based on the true events of Operation Anthropoid during World War II. The movie stars Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan in the lead roles.

“Anthropoid” follows the story of two Czechoslovak soldiers, Jan Kubiš (played by Cillian Murphy) and Jozef Gabčík (played by Jamie Dornan), who are parachuted into their occupied homeland to assassinate Reinhard Heydrich, one of the high-ranking Nazi officers and the main architect of the Holocaust.

The film received generally positive reviews from critics. It was praised for its realistic portrayal of the historical events and the performances of the lead actors. Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan were particularly commended for their convincing portrayals of the real-life soldiers. The movie effectively builds tension and captures the atmosphere of fear and danger that surrounded the assassination mission.

The cinematography and production design were also applauded for their attention to detail and the recreation of the World War II era. The film effectively portrays the grim realities of war and the moral dilemmas faced by the characters.

However, some critics felt that the pacing of the movie was slow at times, and the plot could have been more tightly edited. Despite these minor criticisms, “Anthropoid” is generally regarded as a well-made and engaging war thriller that offers an intense and thought-provoking viewing experience.

Overall, if you have an interest in World War II history, particularly the resistance efforts against the Nazis, and enjoy war thrillers based on true events, “Anthropoid” is worth watching.
