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.

    By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on May 11, 2006
    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.

    As a thriller it doesn't thrill, but as an examination of ethics and conscience it is very good.

    When Avner [ Bana] is hand picked by Golda Meier to hunt down the Palestinian masterminds behind the 1972 killing of Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics, he undertakes his mission enthusiastically though it will mean leaving his lovely young wife and baby behind for perhaps years. Of course, everything is off record and independent of Mossad, though he will be bankrolled and reporting to an intermediary.

    With his team and a quirky French contact who supplies information about the locations of the Palestinians, he tracks them down one by one, eventually realizing it is not that easy to kill human beings-and even more shockingly that he has been sent to eliminate the Palestinian leadership --who were not necessarily involved in the Munich affair.

    Fantastic recreations of the 1970's in European settings, and a marvelous accidental confrontation with Palestinian guerrillas which leads Avner to question some of his most cherished suppositions make this a mature Spielberg production-though not quite in the same league as Schindler's List.

    If you don't mind slow pacing and are interested in moral/ethical issues more than chases and shoot-outs, this is a good choice.

    A struggle between morality, nationalism, and duty. Acting superb and of course Spielberg always delivers. Probably should be rated a four star, but wanted to offset the idiot who rated the movie a one for technical reasons.
