Operation Finale (2018)

Will Crazy Rich Asians Take the Summer Box Office Out on a High Note?

  • 1 hour ago
  • by MovieWeb
  • MovieWeb

Crazy Rich Asians simply cannot be stopped at the box office. The romantic comedy, which features an all Asian cast, has bested the competition two weeks in a row and it’s looking like the movie is going to get the three-peat as this week’s newcomers, which include Operation Finale and Kin, probably won’t be able to muster up enough cash to get the job done. Unfortunately, Happytime Murders, which dramatically underperformed last weekend, will probably fall out of the top five completely with a major drop. The R-rated puppet comedy will be lucky to crack $5 million in its second weekend.

Last weekend, Crazy Rich Asians, which comes from director Jon M. Chu, had a ridiculously great holdover, dropping less than seven percent when compared to the previous weekend. While it’s sure to drop a bit more this upcoming weekend, expect to see the movie bring in around $15 million or so,

Ben Kingsley To Star In ‘Our Lady, Ltd’ Noir Drama Series Ordered By Epix

  • Deadline

Epix has given a formal 10-episode series order to Our Lady, Ltd, a modern noir drama starring Oscar winner Ben Kingsley, from Patriot creator Steve Conrad and Epix’s sister studio MGM Television. Production is slated to begin this fall in Santa Fe, New Mexico, with an eye toward a 2019 premiere.

Written by Conrad and Patriot co-producer Bruce Terris, Our Lady, Ltd (fka Our Lady of Perpetual Grace), follows James, a young grifter, as he attempts to prey upon Pastor Byron Brown (Kingsley), who turns out to be far more dangerous than he suspects.

Conrad and Terris serve as executive producers and showrunners, with Conrad directing six episodes. Also executive producing are Escape Artists’ Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch. The series will be produced by MGM Television and internationally distributed by MGM.

Operation Finale Review: Nazi Hunters Provide Late Summer Heroics

  • 3 hours ago
  • by MovieWeb
  • MovieWeb

Operation Finale recounts the capture of Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann by Israeli intelligence agents. The film is solid on several fronts, particularly the performances from lead actors Oscar Isaac and Ben Kingsley. The problem is that Operation Finale never achieves the gravitas of its subject matter. The Holocaust’s magnitude is superseded by the mechanics of spycraft. More emphasis on the enormity of this heinous crime was needed. Eichmann’s involvement is just too narrowly depicted. Operation Finale should have drawn the curtains further back on Eichmann’s murderous activities.

Operation Finale opens in 1954 with Israeli intelligence, the Mossad, searching for Eichmann (Ben Kingsley) in Europe. Led by Peter Malkin (Oscar Isaac), their efforts bear no fruit. Eichmann has vanished. Six years later in Argentina, a fleeting romance between two teenagers leads to a surprising revelation. Eichmann and his family are hiding in the country under false pretenses.

The Israeli government needs Eichmann alive.

‘Operation Finale’: Why Joe Alwyn Wanted to Play a Real-Life Nazi After His ‘Billy Lynn’ Breakout

  • 5 hours ago

  • Indiewire

Part history lesson, part moral reckoning, Chris Weitz’s “Operation Finale” dramatizes the 1960 operation to bring former SS officer Adolf Eichmann to justice following his years-long escape to Argentina. The film follows Israeli intelligence officers Oscar Isaac, Mélanie Laurent, and Nick Kroll as they hunt the unrepentant Nazi, capture him, and take him to Israel to stand trial. Along the way, their efforts are thwarted by many, including Eichmann’s eldest son, Klaus (Joe Alwyn), who has long embraced his father’s twisted ideals.

Alwyn was drawn by a true story, a slice of history that continues to compel the world, the opportunity to work with a living legend like Sir Ben Kingsley (who plays Eichmann), and the challenge of presenting a multidimensional villain.

“The way that I wanted to try and play him wasn’t as a kind of 2D baddie with no kind of other sides to him,

Oscar Isaac Drops Some Sound Advice for Last Jedi Haters

Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi may be the most divisive movie in the history of the Star Wars franchise. Fans have even started crowdfunding campaigns to remake the film on their own, thinking that they can do a better job than Johnson and Lucasfilm did. Oscar Isaac, who has already been spotted on the set of Star Wars 9, has a message to the haters of the last movie that may come off as surprising.

While promoting his latest movie, Operation Finale, Oscar Isaac was asked about the backlash from The Last Jedi. Instead of being angry about the fan reaction, or simply dismissing it, the actor had some advice for those hardcore fans. Isaac is coming from the standpoint of new inspiration in his message to Star Wars fans. He had this to say.

Rumour: Oscar Isaac wanted for role in The Batman?

With Matt Reeves’ reportedly due to deliver his draft of The Batman to Warner Bros. and DC Films in the very near future, it looks like we may finally get some official news on the Dark Knight’s planned solo movie soon.

In the meantime however, we’ve got another rumour to tide us over, with Omega Underground claiming that Oscar Isaac has met with Warner Bros. about a role in the movie, and that while an offer is yet to be made, Isaac is said to be very interested.

The site goes on to claim that Isaac – who is currently shooting Star Wars: Episode IX – could be up for the role of the film’s villain (or one of the film’s villains) and that The Penguin is likely to be the main antagonist.

Of course, with Ben Affleck’s involvement still up in the air, it’s also

Oscar Isaac Isn’t Up For A Role In The Batman, After All

  • We Got This Covered

The DC fandom has been buzzing about the chances of Star Wars actor Oscar Isaac joining the franchise ever since yesterday brought the news that he’d met with director Matt Reeves for a potential role in The Batman. Numerous characters have been thrown into the hat in regards to who he may be playing as well, including Two-Face and even the Dark Knight himself. But it seems we shouldn’t get too excited just yet.

A new source claims that the previous report was false and no such meeting has taken place between the actor and Warner Bros. According to Heroic Hollywood’s Umberto Gonzalez, who has knowledge of Isaac’s current schedule, there’s been no time for such a discussion to take place. What’s more, The Batman is apparently not at the casting stage yet, as a script hasn’t been turned in.

Here’s Gonzalez’s argument:

Oscar Isaac Has the Best Reaction to ‘Last Jedi’ Backlash, Hopes Angry Fans Get Inspired to Create Their Own Stuff

Oscar Isaac is gearing up to play his “Star Wars” character Poe Dameron for a third time in J.J. Abrams’ upcoming “Episode IX,” but in the meantime he has a message for all the angry “Star Wars” fans still upset by Rian Johnson’s “The Last Jedi.” The most recent “Star Wars” entry opened last December and faced backlash from some fans upset by the inclusion of more prominent female characters and some angered by storylines that diverted from popular fan theories. Isaac took an optimistic approach when talking about the backlash with Yahoo! Entertainment.

“What I think is really special about the whole thing — particularly for people that really didn’t agree with where the story went — is that it’s often a great inspiration to do your own stuff,” Isaac said. “Obviously, making your own ‘Star Wars’ movie is a bit of a tough challenge, but at least

Operation Finale, 2018.

A team of secret agents set out to track down the Nazi officer who masterminded the Holocaust.

While Adolf Hitler and his closest confidants opted to commit suicide during the backend of World War II, SS Lieutenant Colonel Adolf Eichmann chose to flee and begin a new life under a new identity in Argentina. With that said, the question in Operation Finale becomes that, if you do gain reliable knowledge of this repulsive human being’s hidden whereabouts, even as a government body, do you enact revenge by way of murder or allow this harbinger

There’s a certain kind of true-life thriller that benefits from being made in a rough-around-the-edges way. “Operation Finale” is one of those films. It’s a drama about how Israeli agents from the Mossad and Shin Bet, in 1960, learned where Adolf Eichmann, the infamous Nazi war criminal, had disappeared to — Argentina — and went on a hunt to capture him. They extracted him from a suburb of Buenos Aires, where he was hiding in plain sight, and brought him to Israel, where he stood trial for war crimes in the famous 1961 courtroom marathon that was more than just the trial of one man. In many ways, it dragged the full awareness of Nazi atrocities onto the world stage for the first time.

‘Operation Finale’ Film Review: Strong Ensemble Infuses Passion Into Conventional Retelling of Adolf Eichmann’s Capture

  • 6 days ago
  • by Elizabeth Weitzman
  • The Wrap

Ben Kingsley has embodied Jewish heroes as iconic as Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal (“Murderers Among Us”), Anne Frank’s father Otto (“Anne Frank: The Whole Story”), and businessman Itzhak Stern (“Schindler’s List”). In “Operation Finale,” he adopts another perspective altogether, portraying the ultimate villain in Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann.

The innately intense Kingsley isn’t an ideal match for the mild-mannered murderer who inspired philosopher Hannah Arendt to coin the phrase “the banality of evil.” But like the rest of the cast, he holds our attention even when the movie buckles under the burden of earnest intentions.

Once you get past the jarring collection of mismatched accents, it’s a pleasure to be in the company of pros like Oscar Isaac, Mélanie Laurent (“Beginners”), Nick Kroll, and Michael Aronov (“The Americans”). But as Mossad agents, their characters find little pleasure in the task designed by their intimidating boss

‘Operation Finale’ Review: Oscar Isaac and Nick Kroll Hunt Nazis in Chris Weitz’s Uneven Historical Thriller

  • 6 days ago
  • by David Ehrlich
  • Indiewire

Arriving hot on the heels of “BlacKkKlansman,” Chris Weitz’s “Operation Finale” is a major addition to American cinema’s oddest new sub-genre: Morally conflicted period pieces in which “Star Wars” actors of various ethnicities are cast as sexy Nazi-hunters. Adam Driver as Flip Zimmerman, a Denver cop who went undercover to infiltrate the Kkk in 1979? No complaints here. Oscar Isaac as Peter Malkin, the Mossad agent who caught Adolf Eichmann hiding in Argentina? Well…

If the willful obliviousness of the Trump era is inevitably going to result in a rash of new movies that investigate anti-semitism, the Holocaust, and/or the broader history of organized hatred, we could use Hollywood’s most relevant talent to help modern viewers appreciate why. “Operation Finale” may not be a particularly good thriller — it’s broader than the Jewish diaspora, and even pitchier than the delivery of my haftorah portion — but Poe

Review: Ben Kingsley is riveting in the uneven historical thriller ‘Operation Finale’

“Operation Finale” is well aware, and how could it not be, that it has a singular and significant true story to tell, and it has done its best to do justice to its source.

As directed by Chris Weitz from a script by Matthew Orton, “Operation” details Israel’s storied capture of fugitive Nazi Adolf Eichmann, one of the key architects of the Final Solution, snatched on a Buenos Aires street in 1960 and clandestinely transported out of Argentina for a landmark Israeli trial.

Though the story has been filmed more than once before, this version is notable for Ben Kingsley’s expert work as Eichmann and for how handsomely the proceedings have been mounted by production designer David Brisbin and his team and shot by veteran Spanish cinematographer Javier Aguirresarobe.

Just as fortunately, considerable attention has been paid to visual historical accuracy, including shooting at the actual neighborhood bus stop Eichmann used every day. (The line he took before he was abducted is apparently still running.)

But the efforts of an international cast including stars Oscar Isaac, Melanie Laurent and Nick Kroll notwithstanding, “Operation Finale” sounds more involving than it actually plays, ending up earnest and acceptable more than compelling.

Despite some undeniably strong moments and Kingsley’s involving performance, director Weitz (“About a Boy,” “The Golden Compass”) and company have not succeeded in creating excitement in either dramatic or thriller terms. While the bones of the story pull us in, the low voltage, pro forma execution pushes us away.

Though the Eichmann kidnapping was an Israeli team effort with members of both Mossad and Shin Bet agencies involved, one man actually did the physical grabbing.

His name is Peter Malkin and (in collaboration with Harry Stein) he wrote a book with a title, “Eichmann in My Hands,” that is arguably more dramatic than the film on offer.

When we catch up with Malkin (as played by “Star Wars” regular Isaac) in Israel after an earlier botched mission in Austria, he is clearly in the Mossad doghouse, considered with good reason to be impulsive and self-absorbed.

“Operation Finale” reveals the reason Malkin is the way he is: He’s obsessed with avenging the fate of his sister Fruma, whose death he imagines in several different ways because he has no idea how it happened.

Eichmann, though nominally in hiding, is introduced reminiscing to a group of sympathetic Argentines about what he did in the war. “Our work was paperwork,” he blandly insists. “Our war was a numerical one.”

Though Kingsley has played any number of dark individuals (his “Sexy Beast” gangster remains a knockout), the actor manages to do things a little differently here, playing Eichmann as a compelling kind of uber-accountant and conveying an air of quiet but palpable menace.

“Operation Finale’s” story proper begins in Buenos Aires when a young woman named Sylvia Hermann (Haley Lu Richardson) flirts with a young man named Klaus (Joe Alwyn) in a movie theater while a scene from “Imitation of Life” (starring director Weitz’s actress-mother Susan Kohner) plays on screen.

Long story short, Hermann finds out from her father Lothar (Peter Strauss) that she is Jewish and also comes to realize that Klaus’ father is none other than the fugitive Eichmann.

When this information reaches Jerusalem, however, some in Israeli intelligence think it’s old news. Not so Rafi Eitan (Kroll), one of Malkin’s superiors, who convinces higher ups about the validity of the mission and puts Malkin on the team.

Also recruited is the fetching Dr. Hanna Elian (Laurent), a composite character who’s had bad experiences with Mossad in the past, not to mention a love affair with our hero.

The doctor is needed because, though some members of the team are itching to “put him down like a mad dog,” the goal of the mission is to sedate Eichmann and bring him back alive to stand trial.

As Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion (Simon Russell Beale, last seen as the sinister Lavrenti Beria in “The Death of Stalin”) says in a last-minute pep talk, “for the first time in our history, we will judge executioners. For the sake of our people I beg you, do not fail.”

Fail they do not, but in the hands of “Operation Finale” it is a near thing. Though the snatch and grab goes off flawlessly (and is one of the film’s strongest scenes), a situation arises where Eichmann’s signature is needed on a document and nothing will do but for Malkin himself to go one on one with the evildoer to attempt to get him to sign.

The two actors differ in age and acting styles, and in theory their battle might have played out like Raymond Massey toe to toe with James Dean in the legendary confrontation in “East of Eden.” But in cinematic terms it is a one-sided affair.

For while Isaac’s Malkin never catches fire, Kingsley’s Eichmann fascinates. An accomplished manipulator, “slippery as they came,” who effortlessly plays mind games with the entire Israeli team, Eichmann gets under everyone‘s skin even though they are on high alert to prevent just that from happening.

One of the problems with “Operation Finale” is that Isaac’s performance is not enough on fire to sustain what becomes the film’s focus on Malkin’s journey to find himself and come to terms with the traumas of his past. Yes, Malkin grabbed Eichmann, but the film about how it all went down does not return the favor.
