The critical consensus

Could be an oblique prequel to Downfall.

***(*)(*)Ian Nathan, Empire Online, 13/07/2015

A respectable but slightly underwhelming production.

***(*)(*)Allan Hunter, The List, 13/07/2015

A gripping interrogation of a close call for Hitler.

****(*)Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 17/07/2015

Oliver Hirschbiegel delivers a confident account of the life of Georg Elser, who made a failed attempt to bomb Adolf Hitler in 1939.

***(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 016/07/2015

No great shakes, but a decent reputation-saver from Hirschbiegel.

***(*)(*)David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 16/07/2015

Though well acted, the latter aspect of the film sadly isn’t as compellingly rendered as the battle of wills that erupts between Elser and his Nazi interrogators.

***(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 18/07/2015

The picture does not reach its full dramatic potential, though, despite being handsomely mounted and well acted.

***(*)(*)Henry Fitzherbert, Sunday Express, 19/07/2015

Downfall director Oliver Hirschbiegel’s drama centring on would-be Hitler assassin Georg Elser suffers from seen-it-all-before syndrome.

**(*)(*)(*)Mark Kermode, The Observer, 19/07/2015

Where and when?
