“While the screenplay, structure and rhythm are far from perfect, there’s no denying that Jimenez is a talented director of actors and action and that he excels at getting the most out of each shot in terms of production value.”
Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter


• The original working title of this film, “HHhH”, is a war-time Gestapo acronym for Himmlers Hirn heißt Heydrich (“Himmler’s brain is called Heydrich”).

• The movie was scheduled for release in 2016 but was pushed back to 2017 because of the possible conflict and confusion with Anthropoid (2016), starring Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan, which tells the same story of Operation Anthropoid, the mission to assassinate Nazi leader Reinhard Heydrich, and which was released late summer 2016.
