2.5 out of 10 Entertaining Enough
Les from Dublin, 18 May 2008
I guess this movie was good enough to kill a couple of otherwise boring hours over a wet weekend. Well acted, but then Sir Laurence Olivier isn't exactly an amateur, though Gregory Peck wasn't very convincing as Dr Josef Megele. I kept thinking he should have looked older, considering how long it had been since the end of WW II. A bit dated - note the Afro hairstyles of some of the younger characters; very 1970s. On the whole, worth watching, but don't panic if you never get time for it.

3.5 out of 10 Something Different
Joanne from Meath, 24 Aug 2009
Probably had much more impact at the time of its release but still quite an entertaining 2 hours, certainly something different to what you may have seen before and of course if Gregory Peck is in it, you really can't go to wrong

3.5 out of 10 Quite a plot!
Sean from Kildare, 31 Jul 2009
A facinating, if somewhat far-fetched, concept for a movie. Certainly kept my attention as the pieces came together. Well acted and well worth a look.

What's it about....
This terrifying thriller is based on Ira Levin's best seller in which Dr. Josef Mengele (Gregory Peck), alive and living in South America gathers a group of former Nazis to work on a mysterious project. Ezra Lieberman (Laurence Olivier), begins to unravel the conspiracy and discovers that Mengele has cloned 94 young Hitlers. Suddenly the terrifying extent of Mengele's plan is revealed: twisting genetic science to become a new weapon of global horror.
