Mr. Kretschmann holds your attention through each whining complaint and bland denial. His character may be banal, but his portrayal is the only thing that keeps you watching.

Robert Young's well-intentioned dramatic re-enactment is burdened by sepia-period accessorizing, laborious flashbacks, spurious comparisons, and the downright bizarre casting of Franka Potente and Stephen Fry.

Sincere, handsomely produced rendition of real-life encounter...amounts to an engaging drama seasoned by a dollop of soft-core titillation. History buffs, especially, among the upscale art-house crowd won't be disappointed.

Dry, detached and mechanical.

Eichmann could be just another bland program you flip through on the way to the History Channel as you crack open your third beer.

Feels the burden of history so heavily that it's effectively smothered by it.

Eichmann is illuminating, comprehensive, richly detailed and timelessly important - but also ponderous.

A subject that will never be forgotten: the Holocaust. Eichmann, its chief organiser, is the closest we can get to Hitler himself in this, and the sordid details of his army days have enormous relevance
