Operation Finale's climax, while offering a fair amount of excitement and anxiety, feels as though it borrows a bit too heavily from Argo, a better film whose final moments are more engaging and more nerve-wracking.

"Operation Finale" is a good movie, driven by a compelling story and some first-rate performances. It doesn't quite ascend to the level that it might have, but there's no shame in coming up just shy of greatness.

Put another way, director Chris Weitz didn't exactly need to Argo this up for us, but that's pretty much exactly what he does.

The committed leads make Operation Finale worth watching, even though it never really gets to the core of its complicated moral debate.

Despite its engaging performances, this real-life story about Israel's hunt for a war criminal moves through rote plot points with uninventive efficiency.

An engrossing yarn, featuring a magnetic lead performance by Oscar Isaac.
December 6, 2018
The sparring between Kingsley and Isaac is remarkable and the film's structural flaws never blunt the the touching impact of its themes.
November 24, 2018
There are some stumbles in the feature's first half (more editing could've helped) but the latter half makes up for those weaknesses.

Operation Finale was made, at its core, to give an actor the caliber of Kingsley the chance to play Eichmann and the Oscar winner doesn't disappoint with a subdued, elegantly reviling performance.
October 17, 2018
While some of the genre elements of Operation Finale are overly familiar, the film still succeeds due to the strength of the cast, especially Kinsgley and Issac...

Ben Kingsley's performance (Gandhi, Schindler's List) is punctilious. [Full review in Spanish]

Solid performances prevent World War II drama Operation Finale from being total bust

October 4, 2018
When a movie features Ben Kingsley, in a hefty Ben Kingsley role, doing what Ben Kingsley does best, that's probably good enough in itself.

Chris Weitz shows his versatile talent as a director who elicits performances that humanize all the characters, even the ones who seem to deserve it the least.
September 30, 2018
This fact-based story is a carefully executed retelling of the Israeli operation to catch Eichmann in Buenos Aires and bring him to Israel to stand trial for his part in the Holocaust.
September 21, 2018
The film rests itself on the excitement of reality, which is nearly enough to make it a good movie, but not quite enough.

While there are some issues with pacing and editing as well as Isaac's performance, Operation Finale is an important part of history that should not be forgotten.

Operation Finale isn't bad; it just isn't as strong as similar stories that we've already seen.

A respectfully entertaining Nazi-hunting adventure.
Full Review | Original Score: B
September 12, 2018
Adolf Eichmann had no Nazi nickname like Josef Mengele's "Angel of Death," but I'm liking "Chained to Six Million Souls." Not Schindler's List but Kingsley's presence in both makes it reminiscent.
