“OP­ER­A­TION FI­NALE”

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - On Tv -

The true story of the pursuit of Nazi war crim­i­nal Adolf Eich­mann by Is­raeli agents ben­e­fits from typ­i­cally good per­for­mances by Os­car win­ner Ben Kingsley and another Os­car – Os­car Isaac – plus a solid di­rec­tor in Chris Weitz (“About a Boy”). Isaac plays one of the Mos­sad op­er­a­tives sent to Argentina to re­trieve Eich­mann and bring him back to Is­rael to stand trial. That’s eas­ier said than done, since once he’s cap­tured, spir­it­ing him out of the coun­try is com­pli­cated. Kingsley does a fine job of de­pict­ing Eich­mann as some­one other than the mon­ster he would be proven to be, and Isaac (also a pro­ducer of the film) is a smart match for him. (PG-13: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On De­mand)
