One of the all-time worst.

January 7, 2008 | Rating: 0/4 | Full Review…

The worst thing about both films is the fact that the bulk of them feature people in rooms, talking and talking.

Audience Reviews for They Saved Hitler's Brain

Ok, yeah it's bad. It's incoherent for the most part and the real plot of the thing doesn't kick in until halfway through while the rest of the time is filled up with wraparounds that have no bearing on the story and are there soley to fatten the film out to a specific length. Pretty terrible, although there are a few parts that made smile - most of them involving Hitler's bodyless head being transported in the back of a Nazi vehicle.

This movie feels like the editor accidentally got three movies taped together, and maybe lost some of each film as well. It's incoherent, confusing, and just stupid, the actors are horrible. It's not even bad enough to make fun of.

They did do that thing the title says they did. But when they filmed it, it turned out to be too short, so several years later unrelated parties filmed some extra barely related spy footage and tacked it on to the beginning of the original. The result is one of the most boring and confusing movies ever made, with only some outstandingly hammy acting by Hitler's mute head (carefully preserved in a pickle jar) enlivening things at the very end.
