Operation Mincemeat

I think what has been often said about this movie is very true:  the story is fantastic but it may have been better off as a documentary or docuseries.  Once they get past the meat of the story they really had to scrounge to fill in the gaps (including inventing a love triangle).  The movie dips in the middle but finishes off stronger.
