'Final Account' is set to release in theaters on Friday May 21st, 2021.

I normally don't set myself up to watch documentaries, normally they are slower moving films that I tend to not want to invest the time into watching, but I am glad I ended up watching this one. The subject matter did interest me, and I thought it was an interesting idea to hear from people that were more involed with the Third Reich.

'Final Account' is an urgent portrait of the last living generation of everyday people to participate in Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich. Over a decade in the making, the film raises vital, timely questions about authority, conformity, complicity and perpetration, national identity, and responsibility, as men and women ranging from former SS members to civilians in never-before-seen interviews reckon with - in very different ways - their memories, perceptions and personal appraisals of their own roles in the greatest human crimes in history.

There are times that our tough to watch during this film, so be ready. It's tough to hear from people who were not just there during the events, but also participated in it. Now yes they were children, so they did more as they were told not as they wanted, but it's still tough to have people who particpated in this get a dim spotlight. It is important to hear from them since we are running out of time to head from people that were around during this.

I will say this is more made for The History Channel, or at least an at home viewing. I don't think this movie warrents an in theater expierence. So I would wait and see this one at home. That way you can take the time to watch this one and see it for what it really offers.

Rating: 2.5 out of 5
