Cillian Murphy, Jamie Dornan and Toby Jones head the cast in this stirring true-story war movie.
Get past the off-putting title, which sounds as though it belongs to a schlocky sci-fi film, the iffy Czech accents and the stodgy scene setting and you will be rewarded with a thrilling movie, which restages the 1942 mission to assassinate high-ranking Nazi Reinhard Heydrich in Prague.
The film dwells on the planning stages for too long, but then steps up a gear when Murphy and Dornan's Resistance fighters finally launch their attack.
The assassination's aftermath is even more compulsive. As the SS corner the heroes in a Prague church, British writer/director Sean Ellis unleashes a relentless, brutally sustained burst of action that will leave you reeling in shock and awe.
