DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Thriller - This is a fact-based drama aimed at older adults, and it is not quite the thriller the trailers make it out to be. Fans of Oscar Isaac and especially Ben Kingsley will be pleased by this dramatic showcase. Language, some violence, and generally adult subject matter make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Strong performances by Oscar Isaac and Ben Kingsley add a layer of intensity to the scenes when the two play off one another. Overall, Operation Finale tells its story without grossly distorting history and does so in a manner that engages an audience for its two hour running time.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good ...despite its other elaborations on the historical record, is engrossing and a little moving. And Isaac is a very winning and effective messenger of Peter Malkin's heroism and humanity.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Above Average You find yourself moved by what the filmmakers are doing, lingering on the way space and sound are used to grant a final moment of peace. And then you wonder why, as you leave the theater, you've almost completely forgotten the movie that came before it.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Average While Operation Finale provides the type of entertainment expected from a handsomely mounted historical caper, it strains to rise to the level of importance its subject necessitates. ...a drama about extraction and extradition, treating the mission to smuggle Eichmann out of Argentina like a heist film.

GREAT REVIEWS! All ages, both males and females, LOVED "OPERATION FINALE." Just a few adult males rated it "good/average."


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Fifteen years after the end of World War II, acting on irrefutable evidence, a top-secret team of Israeli agents travel to Argentina where Eichmann (Kingsley) has been in hiding together with his family under the alias 'Ricardo Klement' and execute an extremely dangerous abduction. In attempting to sneak him out of Argentina to stand trial in Israel while being pursued by the country's right-wing forces, agent Peter Malkin (Isaac) is forced to engage Eichmann in an intense and gripping game of cat-and-mouse with life-and-death stakes.
