4.0 out of 5 stars Well made and exciting, September 28, 2005
This review is from: Sword of Gideon (DVD)
This film is a fictionalized account of the story of (one of) the Mossad teams which was sent globetrotting in pursuit of the Black September terrorists who massacred 11 Israeli athletes in the Olympic Village of the 1972 Munich Olympic games.

By fictionalized, I mean that the team members and the exact methods and locations for the assassinations probably do NOT match reality. The factual elements in the film are the Munich massacre, Golda Meir's directive to hunt the terrorists down, the names of the main Black September members involved, etc.

The film deals with the struggle to maintain sanity and humanity while fighting against those who lack decent amounts of each. The film is quite effective in showing the unbearable tension these men deal with in their jobs and how even the slightest mistake can be deadly.

The opening of the film has, in my opinion, some slightly poor production values. It is apparent that NOT a large section of the film's budget went into this section. Afterwards, though, it looks and flows very well.

The actors all do a good job in their roles. The direction is taut, the action strong, and the music is fabulous.

Just hope that the DVD transfer is a good one.

I ordered this DVD, because the info on Amazon, says it is Closed Captioned. IT IS NOT!!! At least the one from Echo Bridge is not. BUMMER>
