Hauer: Anti-hero by nature...
26 May 1999 | by PVOMSee all my reviews

And this time, the all-time Nazi sympathizer. All potential historical inaccuracies aside, this is quite an unsettling film. Young, opportunist architect Albert Speer (Hauer) finds himself caught up in the Nazi party, maintaining an air of ignorance of Hitler's insanity and monstrosity. Instead Speer becomes his best friend and a bit of a tragic hero in the long run, as he makes an ernest stab at trying to clean up his mess towards the close of the war. Hauer is suave and determined to the last. A worthwhile mini-series pic, with a great supporting cast and plenty of Hauer to go around. Some may have a hard time with the self-congratulatory tone.
