The Last Nazi never creates the expected menace. It’s not that aging war criminal Adalwolf, an associate of Josef Mengele, isn’t clever and diabolical. But he’s never more frightening than a comic-book villain bent on world destruction, in this case transmitting a virus to kill millions of Jews through the unborn son of Nazi-hunting lawyer Melissa Gale. Pottinger tries to re-create the repartee of Hannibal Lecter and Clarice Starling, but winds up with inane dialogue (”Life in Auschwitz wasn’t exactly Fast Times at Ridgemont High”). As you may have guessed, The Last Nazi isn’t exactly The Silence of the Lambs.
