Hitler: The Rise of Evil

Watched “Hitler: The Rise of Evil” on DVD. For some reason I was thinking that it will be a documentary. Instead it turned out to be a 3 hour long drama about Adolf Hitler.

Production was for television and thus there are many technical annoyances (light and sound come to mind). Acting was good. Robert Carlyle (“Trainspotting“, “The Full Monty“) was an excellent Führer. Somehow I came to think that women acted overall better than men, in this film.

I wish there were more historical information and facts. It would be both more entertaining and educational at the same time. I’ve learned a few things and cleared up some mess in my head, but I could have done more – there’s no question about it.

6 out of 10.
