We are still a week away from Labor Day so some summer movies are still left in the clip. Audiences are getting smaller, and so are the movies, but never will we see a weekend without at least one new release. This time around we've got the Mossad hunting down the architect of the Holocaust, and a kid who finds a mysterious weapon. Get ready for Operation Finale and Kin.

Just remember, I'm not reviewing these movies, but rather predicting where they'll end up on the Tomatometer. Let's take a look at This Rotten Week has to offer.

Rotten Watch Prediction
51%

After World War II, in the wake of the German defeat to the Allies, some of the highest ranking Nazi leaders scattered around the world so as to avoid being tried for war crimes. Adolf Eichmann, essentially the man behind the design of the atrocities committed against the Jewish people, was one of the officers who escaped. That is, until the Mossad tracked him down in Argentina 20 years later and brought him back to Israel to stand trial. Operation Finale details the mission to confirm Eichmann's identity in Argentina and extract him. It's a heavy set of circumstances, and the trailer has a Munich-like feel to it.

Unfortunately, critics don't appear overly impressed with the film. Through 12 reviews, it's sitting at 58% on the Tomatometer with some critics saying it lacks the depth and gravitas of the subject it's dealing with. This isn't to say it's getting panned, but it just seems underwhelming. Director Chris Weitz has been attached to a lot of films in different roles, but his other work in the big chair hasn't stood up with the critics. The Golden Compass (42%) and The Twilight Saga: New Moon (28%) both finished lower on the Tomatometer. I'm worried this one will as well.
