Plot Outline:

The roots of the infamous German terrorist group, the Red Army Faction, are traced to the turbulent events of the late 1960s. When a political riot leaves a protester dead and an assassination attempt is made on a left-wing leader, student radicals Andreas Baader and Gudrun Ensslin join forces with journalist Ulrike Meinhof to form a violent faction that turns to bombings, kidnappings, and murder to achieve its goals.

3.5/4 

Historically accurate and highly authentic recreation of a 1970s Germany rocked by the distinct threat of a new type of terrorism. The Red Army Faction (originally known by the media as "The Baader Meinhof Complex", after two of its originators Andreas Baader and Ulrike Meinhof) considered themselves to be a Communist and "Urban Guerrilla" group who carried out a number of attacks against the then Federal German Government who they deemed as Fascist. The movie chronicling these events is a well written and sharply directed dissection of the group's motives and failures. The camerawork brilliantly captures the chaos, violence and turbulence of the period. A fantastic cast compliment this gripping and startlingly impressive thriller.

Full of energy and surprising, even to me. Very few people try this hard to make quality films anymore. A completely new insight into a German terrorist group who took "action" when all most people did was talk. Excellent performances and direction.

"The Baader Meinhof Complex" by Yojimbo

The leaders of a terrorist group working within Germany in the 1970s are hunted down and imprisoned while their comrades perpetrate increasingly desperate plans for their release. The Baader Meinhof Complex is an interesting look at a period of German history I new little about, when the new generation feared the apathy that led to Hitler's rise and decided to act against what they saw as similarly imperialist actions. This gives an interesting political backdrop to some well executed action sequences during the first half of the film but unfortunately once they are captured, the film becomes quite unfocussed and slightly tiresome. It degenerates into various scenes of prison cell squabbling which is in no way aided by the fact that there is no central character the viewer can identify wi...
