Product Description

Gregory Peck hams it up big time in this 1978 thriller based on Ira Levin's bestselling novel. Peck plays an old German Nazi behind a mysterious series of murders, the investigation of which leads to an astonishing plot to create the Fourth Reich. Laurence Olivier is equally outrageous as a Nazi hunter who stumbles onto the scheme. Director Franklin Schaffner (Planet of the Apes) doesn't make any bones about the preposterousness of the story or of his legendary stars' performances, and a viewer is advised not to push too deeply into this tall tale for cautionary meaning. The film is a bit bloody--particularly unnerving in a climactic scene involving some attack dogs under the command of a young but familiar-looking monster. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars Chilling and Thrilling Sept. 4 2002
By JK
Format:DVD
I first saw this movie in the theatre when it was released. Back then, as stated by another reviewer, the concept of human cloning was way out there. Seen today it certainly doesn't seem so outrageous.
Peck lives up to his reputation with this white-faced, black-haired, insane profile of Dr. Mengele. Mengele in person wasn't nearly as impressive! It is a refreshing change from Peck's usual roles, about as far from Atticus in "Mockingbird" as you can get! His cold and calculating confidence in himself and his work is still a standout among movie thrillers. Back when this film was made, the rumors of an international Nazi cabal operating out of S. America would still made the papers. Now, more than 50 years since V-E Day, it's a little less credible.
Olivier is great, as always. He plays to character, at least for an American stereotypical Jew, though possibly not for a European. Lilli Palmer is beautiful; no amount of effort to make her look shabby would succeed. I particularly enjoyed Uta Hagen as the imprisoned Nazi operative; I wished there was more exposure for her.
There wasn't a weak part in the cast of the film; everyone plays to a high standard. It was a pleasure to watch when it first came out, and doesn't appear too dated now. And, in some ways, it is even more believable now, particularly re cloning!

Boys From Brazil

I really like this movie, BUT even with the new art work in this Lions Gate version it's the same old poor quality LETTERBOX WIDESCREEN (black frame around entire picture on a 16X9 screen) as previously released on Maple. It's about time that some company should put out a decent version of this film to give it the credit it deserves.

what would happen if someone attempted to clone Hitler in modern times(late 1970's?)this movie deals with that possibility and details the people who try to stop it from happening before it's too late.this movie brings up many moral and ethical issues that are probably more relevant today.the whole concept is certainly frightening.as for the movie itself,i didn't like it at first,as it is pretty slow paced.but it picks up by the second act enough to maintain interest.the movie stars Gregory Peck and Laurence Olivier and a young Steve Guttenberg.the acting is good all around,but in my opinion,Peck gives an outstanding performance.something else i liked about this movie is even though it has a strong message,it doesn't hit you over the head with it.overall,i give The Boys From Brazil a 3/5.

5.0 out of 5 stars "I am a scientist, I have done my job" July 11 2006
By bernie TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:VHS Tape
You are an executioner, do yours!"

Barry Kohler (Steve Guttenberg) discovers the (NSDAP) is in 1978 Paraguay. He tries to tip off Ezra Lieberman (Laurence Olivier) famous Nazi hunter that of an overheard plot to execute 94 men (all minor officials) from all over the civilized world within a two year period. The informant is dispatched during the revelation.

Was he exaggerating?

If not why such an obscure plot?

We hatch as Herr Lieberman slowly comes around to the reality of the nefarious plot by "The Boys from Brazil"

Will he be in time to foil it? Should he?

Finally a film where Gregory Peck can be the bad guy with no redeeming value. James Mason is his cool self and Walter Gotell (born 15 March 1924, Bonn, Germany) makes the best German baddy.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Zend in ZE Clones!", or, They Saved Hitler's DNA Oct. 19 2003
Format:DVD
It's a dreary, rainy Sunday afternoon, Monday is lurking around the corner, and you're feeling a little blue. What to watch to lift those sodden spirits?
If you're like me, you should immediately pop "The Boys from Brazil" into the hopper, sit back with a big bowl of extra-buttery popcorn, and you'll cheer up in no time.
Director Franklin Shaffner pulls out all the stops in this delicious 1970's romp, uses all the tricks at his disposal to concoct and serve up a steaming, hardy serving of Nazi conspiracy mongering deep in modern day South America, and garnishes this well-seasoned little dish with ample amounts of the red sauce, killer attack Dobermans, a small army of sneering little clones, and gratuitous amounts of both Lawrence Olivier and Gregory Peck chewing up the scenery like starving men at an All-you-can-Eat Buffet.
And what a tasty and well-stocked buffet it is: "The Boys from Brazil" gets to work immediately and plunges its arms deep into its tale of young Jewish Nazi-hunters (one of whom is played by Steve Guttenberg) on the trail of infamous Nazi doctor Josef Mengele, now escaped to Paraguay and meeting with SS officers to brew up an insidious plot.
Gregory Peck has the time of his career playing the wicked, moustachioed, banana-yellow tie & white sear-sucker suit-wearing Mengele, barking orders, rolling his R's, making midgets cower, yowling invective at an improbably ugly SS wife, and generally having great fun. And what high-cheese Nazi hunt would be complete without Sir Lawrence Olivier, who plays veteran Nazi hunter Ezra Lieberman, who gets drawn into all the fun from semi-retirement in Vienna, Austria?

3.0 out of 5 stars My fault
Unfortunately I didn't check the zone and I bought this movie that is not compatible with the country I live. To bad for me, next time I should pay more attention.
Thanks
