A british film shot on location in Prague, seems to get a lot of the details right from what we know.
The operation took place on May 27 so I dont know what the weather was like, but this one has the bleakest and coldest looking atmosphere. It correctly shows Heydrich riding alone in his open-topped car with only a driver as he wanted to demonstrate his control over the populace.
Kubis and Gabcik are waiting at a tram stop with their bicycles they used to escape, with the lookout man signaling them when the car was approaching. He uses a cigarette rather than a mirror (which was the real means).
I don't think this one was filmed at the actual location (I've been there) but it correctly shows an uncrowded area with a sharp turn that the car would have to slow down to navigate.
Gabcik tries to shoot and his gun jams, which is accurate. He runs and is followed by Heydrich's driver on foot. In the confusion Kubis throws a bomb (which looks like a grenade here) under the car (not into) which injures Heydrich but he still manages to escape the car.
But I have to say great stuntwork here as there is no cut from the bomb exploding. that stuntman seems to take the brunt of the explosion.
then a brief gunfight as Kubis flees and Heydrich collapses.
Missing some detail but pretty darn good overall.
