They made Hitler a very unbelievable character IMHO. Really, how many times did he survive an assassination attempt because a bomb just didn't work for some reason, or because he just happened to change his plans? I wouldn't be surprised to find out in some "Making Of" special that he offed himself with a silver bullet or a solution made from unobtainium.
