Hollywood is really going in guns blazing with World War Two movies in 2016 and 2017. Beside this one we also have coming up:
- USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage
- Hacksaw Ridge
The newly released World War II movie Anthropoid starring Cillian Murphy (Peaky Blinders, The Wind that Shakes the Barley) and Toby Jones (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy) chronicles the true story of the Assassination of Reinhard Heydrich by Czechoslovakian Resistance in 1942.
For those of you interested in the history of SOE and OSS Operations During World War Two, you will like this one to be sure since this is one of the best examples of resistance fighters being trained and re-inserted into their home countries by the Special Operations Executive (SOE).
Often Hollywood screws up these amazing stories by trying to insert some sort of sappy love triangle and although an attempt is made in this movie to include some romance, it does not detract from the story at all.
Stay Alert, Stay Armed and Stay Dangerous!
