Better than you think.

Hitler was discovered alive. So Anton Becker (Lee Patterson) gets recruited by Mossad to hunt him down and confirm the identity so they can...well you figure it out.

Great acting from all involved. And showing an aged Hitler not in full command of his senses added a touch of realism.

Martin Boorman being played as the sadistic heir apparent was great too. And played as a evil backstabber that would sacrifice an ally to gain prominence too.

The end justified the means to these Nazis, kind of like in real life I imagine. (I wasn't there.)

The flashback scenes will be heartrending to more sensitive types. But this was a well made thriller. And note the nod to Cornel Wilde's 'Naked Prey.'
