Movie Info & Cast


The end of World War II was only the beginning of the hunt for justice. Based on real events, Operation Finale tells the story of the covert mission to track down the notorious Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann (Ben Kingsley), one of the chief architects of the Holocaust, and make him stand trial for his crimes in Israel. Mossad agent Peter Malkin (Oscar Isaac) infiltrates Argentina in 1960, where Eichmann has been living in secret with his family. But capturing the man is one thing – smuggling him out of the country in one piece proves to be another matter entirely. Chris Weitz (About A Boy) directs this intense psychological thriller that unfolds between a captor and his captive. The film also stars Mélanie Laurent, Nick Kroll, Haley Lu Richardson, and Joe Alwyn.

  • In the opening credits, a hand (presumably Eichmann's) is shown pushing pins into a map indicating the names/locations of concentration camps and major European cities where Jews were captured. One of the pins is marked "Vienna". However, since this is a German map they should have used the German name for Vienna, which is "Wien".

overwhelming - very powerful and thoughtful Please don't talk through movie - read a little background before you see it so you don't need to ask your seatmate

Speechless. History is the most accurate way to predict the future.

Given the magnitude and complexity of the topic, an entertaining film is almost irrelevant, at moments trivializing. This particular story cries out to be viewed through a new, fresh lens. Otherwise, why are we hearing it? Why now?

Isaac and Kingsley bring quite a bit to Orton's dialogue, sometimes seeming to mean it at face value and sometimes inviting skepticism.

It’s a shame the filmmakers felt constrained by the import of their subject matter, rather than inspired to take some artistic risks. But even when the storytelling falters, the story itself — not merely extraordinary, but eternally relevant — remains paramount.
