Engaging biopic about the rise of power of Adolf Hitler, Hitler: The Rise of Evil features a brilliant tour de force performance by actor Robert Carlyle in the lead role. The film chronicles the early years of Hitler's life right up to his prominent rise in politics. Now, the film is pretty inaccurate, but in terms of being a biopic, this is sure to appeal to viewers interested in the subject. In terms of an entertaining biopic, this is a very good film. However if you're expecting an accurate portrait of the facts, you'll sadly be disappointed. But the cast here are great and each bring something unique to the screen that makes this film standout. Do go into this film expecting an accurate portrait of Hitler's life, you won't find it here. The filmmakers do get many aspects of his rise correctly, the fiction overshadows the truth. There are far better films detailing Hitler, and I would suggest to viewers wanting an accurate portrait of events , should watch the film that focuses on the last ten days of his life, Der Untergang (Downfall). Carlyle delivers a stunning performance here, and with that performance alone, you are captivated by his screen presence. Hitler: The Rise of Evil is flawed, but it does have its strengths as well. One is the storyline, which is engaging and entertaining, the other is the acting, from terrific actors. If you're interested in history, then this is the film watch. You may not get the facts, but it can spark interest in a riveting subject matter. Robert Carlyle is a great choice to play the lead role of Adolf Hitler, and along with Bruno Gantz who played the part in Der Untergang is one of the most impressive actors to play one of the most evil historical figures of the 20th century. Hitler: The Rise of Evil is imperfect, but as a whole, it's a good try at capturing Hitler's life on film. With that being said, the most definitive biopic on Hitler has yet to be made.
Actually really well done.....
