Metro Goldwyn Mayer Pictures’ razor-sharp thriller, Operation Finale, brings to life one of the most daring covert operations in modern history.

Starring Golden Globe winner Oscar Isaac and Academy Award winner Sir Ben Kingsley, and the film vividly captures the ingenious and brilliantly executed mission to capture Adolf Eichmann, one of the chief architects of the Holocaust. Fifteen years after the end of World War II, acting on irrefutable evidence, a top-secret team of Israeli agents travel to Argentina where Eichmann (Kingsley) has been in hiding together with his family under the alias ‘Ricardo Klement’ and execute an extremely dangerous abduction. In attempting to sneak him out of Argentina to stand trial in Israel while being pursued by the country’s right-wing forces, agent Peter Malkin (Isaac) is forced to engage Eichmann in an intense and gripping game of cat-and-mouse with life-and-death stakes.

"A respectful chronicle of retribution, one that's suspenseful while resisting sensationalism." — Tom Russo, Boston Globe


"A well-made spy thriller replete with scenes of secret surveillance, faked passports and hairbreadth escapes." — Soren Andersen, Seattle Times


"The reason the movie works as well as it does is its two stars: Oscar Isaac and Ben Kingsley." — Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
