Hello everyone, and welcome to this week’s movie review of the week. The lucky movie this week is Operation Finale and my lucky guest to see it with me was my own dad. Operation Finale, directed by Chris Weitz and starring Oscar Isaac and Ben Kingsley is a well rounded, post- World War II movie about the hunt for the, “mastermind of the final solution,” Adolf Eichmann. Oscar Isaac stars as Peter Malkin, a Mossad agent in charge of tracking down Adolf Eichmann (played by Ben Kingsley) who has been able to avoid arrest for the last 15 years, making him the last high- ranking Nazi officer left to stand trial. Isaac and Kingsley’s chemistry is magnificent, as is the soundtrack, writing, and ending. But, sadly for Operation Finale, there were also many flaw that good acting could not overcome. Even with a great story, the movie has terrible pacing, being either too rushed or too slow at times. The cinematography and editing were not much to talk about either. When I asked my dad what he thought of the movie he said, “It was very enjoyable and reminded me of movies like Argo and Zero Dark Thirty. I would recommend that you go see it if you haven’t already. Definitely give it a thumbs up.” Flaws aside, I would give Operation Finale a thumbs up as well.  I rate it 3 out of 4 stars. It wasn’t Schindler’s List but it was good enough to give a very fascinating story the movie it deserves.

Awards that Operation Finale could win:

Best Actor: Oscar Isaac

Best Supporting Actor: Ben Kingsley
