Eric Bana is in top form as Avner, a young Mossad agent who is selected to head up a specialist team to eliminate the men responsible for the killing of the Israeli Olympic team in 1972 in this tautly directed thriller.

The film starts with a great opening replay of the incident at Munich. From there it becomes a revenge plot that involves a kill list of eleven targets all linked with the murders. The scenes involving the elimination of those targets are great. Well staged, paced, and full of tension. The rest of the story that fills in the gaps between the short set pieces is much less interesting. I had little-to-no investment with the main characters. Some dialogue did not work in it's attempt for deepness and there were many fake dramatic 'movie' moments that clashed with the realism of the violence. The constant back and forth of good to bad scenes made for a slightly tedious 2hr. 45min watch. Great directing lifts the underwhelming writing.

In a different film for Spielberg, Munich mostly avoids sensational acting sequences for a more intrigue-filled and foreboding plot. The film's themes of revenge and justice are occasionally forced down our throats by not-so-subtle juxtaposition (the sex scene, for instance) and symbolism, but the strong cast and the quieter moments of the film showcase Spielberg's ability to tell a good story visually.

"Munich" by Yojimbo

I'm sure Steven Spielberg has been told how "brave" he was for tackling such sensitive subject matter (no doubt while he sat in his multi-million dollar high security mansion) but for me, not brave enough. His obvious unwillingness to takes sides or express any opinion at all on the events portrayed here is the film's Achilles heel. Without a moral compass, and only superficially realized characters and motives (especially considering the lack of context on the world's political stage) what is left is just a series of documentary style vignettes in which 5 characters we don't know assassinate a series of targets we don't know for reasons we don't know. Eric Bana's passage from young idealist to hollow-eyed paranoic seemes to happen overnight and so is unconvincing for the same reason. It'...

Munich review

Avner Kaufman (Eric Bana), an Israeli-born Mossad agent was tasked to lead a group to assassinate the perpetrators of the violent incident in events of 1972 Munich Olympics. He is aided by Steve (Daniel Craig), a driver; Hans (Hanns Zischler), a forger; Robert (Mathieu Kassovitz), a Belgian toy-maker trained in defusing explosives; and Carl (Ciarán Hinds), a former Israeli soldier who never leaves evidence after the assassinations. Avner’s team has 11 targets with the help of an informant who gives the whereabouts and names, Louis (Mathieu Amalric). Some nice lines from the film: Anver – “You are the only home I ever had.” Papa – “The race is not to the swift nor the battle to the strong but time and chance happens to them all. Evil falls suddenly, who can say when it falls?” Carl – “...
