Editorial Reviews

Inspired by real events, Munich reveals the intense story of the secret Israeli squad assigned to track down and assassinate the 11 Palestinians believed to have planned the 1972 Munich massacre of 11 Israeli athletes - and the personal toll this mission of revenge takes on the team and the man who led it. Hailed as "tremendously exciting" (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone), Steven Spielberg's explosive suspense thriller garnered five Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director.

    Format: DVD
    Attempting to understand what drives people to kill other people for any reason is, in the pit of the soul, a challenging enigma. Whether that 'reason' is war between countries at odds, protecting one's self when endangered, revenge or vengeance for deeds perpetrated by 'the other', for panic in the moment of survival - each of these feels wrong despite the fundamental belief to the contrary at the moment of killing. MUNICH is about killing, about vengeance, about protection of 'home', about existence in a world so bifurcated by age-old schisms, and about us. And while absorbing all of the 2 1/2 hour plus visual and philosophical information put forth in this epic film, the viewer is so paralyzed by the story that blinking for a second seems irreverent.

    The tragedy of the 1972 Olympics - the brutal kidnapping and murder of eleven Israeli athletes by masked Arab/Palestinian marauders - is brought to the screen with brave and gutsy realism by a brilliant script by Tony Kushner and Eric Roth based on George Jonas' book Vengeance: The True Story of an Israeli Counter-Terrorist Team, directed with straightforward, no-nonsense sensitivity to all participants by Steven Spielberg, and brought to life by a cast that simply could not be finer. From the opening of the film sans credits with the Black September act of breaking into the Olympic games in Munich, the film moves swiftly through the formation of an anti-terrorist league of Israeli assassins whose job it is to hunt down the killers and murder them, to the final painfully unsettled end. This is all under the instruction and guidance of Golda Meir (brilliantly played by Lynn Cohen) and her advisors.

    What could you expect from a two and a half-hour picture based on actual events and telling about Israeli government avenging their olympic team members killed by palestinian terrorists during Munich Olympic Games of 1972? Well, not a breathtaking, action-packed thriller, that's for sure. I thought it would be long, boring, didactic and over the top pompous. Even the presence of Steven Spielberg's name in the credits couldn't inspire me. Now I'm glad I was wrong on all counts. Yes, it was long, but of that kind when you wish a film had never ended. It's neither boring nor didactic nor pretentious.

    Young Mossad agent Avner (Eric Bana) is given a task to eliminate the members of "Black September" terrorist organization with the help of a group of fellow agents. And that's what they do during two hours and a half of the screen time - locating and killing Palestinian terrorists one by one. "Munich" could become one of the many political thrillers about confrontation of different countries' intelligence services. It could raise some serious questions of historical importance and be overly-political. But Spielberg did an amazing thing with this global story - he transferred it to the personal level. So this story turned out to be not about countries, governments and intelligence services but about ordinary men. A country's vengeance was laid upon one man's shoulders, and that's how we see it - through his eyes. Along with him we will question the righteousness of his task, we will doubt, we'll see how a revenge appears to be ineffective and reasonless (as it always happens) especially if it's a revenge in a global scale: terrorism is like hydra - you cut one head off and two more emerge in it's place.

    This is the greatest movie I have ever seen(good will hunting close 2nd). I knew about the events that transpired in munich 1972, my mother would occassionally bring it up as I was growing up. Nothing in this world has made and brought me closer to Israel and being proud to be a jew than this movie. The love for there country and to take a mission like this, basically to give up their lives or the only lives they knew for the protection and future of there country. Others may not grasp the concept that Israel is the only Jewish Country in the World, There are numerous Christian and Islamic countries. Theconflict alone of this movie made it great, it was much more complex in the character development and plot, and the rest of the story made it incredible. Should have clearly been the academy award winner for best picture over Crash at the 2006 academy awards. I don't really like to write movie reviews, but every so often a movie comes around like this that it's too great not to be mentioned. This review will be listed under my mothers name, I am her son, Michaol Lucka writing this review

    What really bugs me about movies "inspired" or "based on" real life events, is that the producers take that real-life event, and then fictionalize it into something unrecognizable. If people don't research what they've seen, they go away thinking "this is how it happened". Spielberg, at least is honest when he says the "facts" are that there was a terrorist attack in Munich, the Israeli government decided to retaliate, and some of those terrorists were indeed killed. Beyond that, most of this movie is fiction.

    The intelligence sources used to track down the targets were not the quasi organized crime characters depicted in the film. Apparently, much of the information came from Israeli Intelligence. Why the change? There's probably more drama in some shadowy trans-national organization. Some people perceive some sort of "balance". I suppose it depends upon one's perspective. If one cannot differentiate a terrorist act like the massacre in Munich from a government taking measures (albeit extreme) to protect it's citizens from future attacks, then I suppose that individual could interpret things like the overdone depiction of personal trauma suffered by the team members as a message against direct retaliation. Although most people would have difficulty killing someone in cold blood, I doubt that the actual Mossad trigger-pullers had the misgivings depicted in the film.

    The message that killing a terrorist only causes another to step forward is flawed. The same would be true with capture and trial. The Israelis have used every method imaginable, ranging from direct negotiation, to capture and trial, to assassination. The fact is that these groups want what won't be given...the elimination of Israel as a nation.

    an uncut version. What the hell are you talking about?

    Confused about the ending
    I took it to mean that They were now in 2 different worlds. Avner could not or would not go back into Ephraims and Ephraim knew that he himself was in his world for life. And if he were to step out of it into a setting of love and warmth such as that of Avners home he might suddenly be besieged... Read More

    Well, there might have been some much deeper meaning, I'm not a film critic, however I think the point was that his case officer was not his friend or buddy. He wasn't an enemy of course, I don't mean this in some kind of sinister or evil way, just that his only concern was how best to serve... Read More

    I guess it's like Cinderella Man and Jarhead, both Collector's Edition were fairly limited and I had to get my friend to buy it for me from BestBuy local shop, simply because I wasn't aware that they would run out so soon.
