Mr. Kretschmann holds your attention through each whining complaint and bland denial. His character may be banal, but his portrayal is the only thing that keeps you watching.

Eichmann is illuminating, comprehensive, richly detailed and timelessly important - but also ponderous.

A subject that will never be forgotten: the Holocaust. Eichmann, its chief organiser, is the closest we can get to Hitler himself in this, and the sordid details of his army days have enormous relevance

Robert Koehler

Dry, detached and mechanical.

Chuck Bowen
Slant Magazine

Eichmann could be just another bland program you flip through on the way to the History Channel as you crack open your third beer.
