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.

This movie was very disappointing to me, I expected a lot more from this award winning Spielberg film. But I still enjoyed it very much. And I recommend that you see it.

I thought it was a good movie. It was a very moving movie, a time when alot of people remembered the munich tragedies. So, alot of people can related and remember where they were or what they were doing when this played out. Also, I never thought I would side with the assassins, but in this movie, I did. It made you explore your moral and ethical beliefs on what would you do in that situation, or even if you would support these assassins that killed the other assassins. I thought this was one of the better films that Eric Bana has been in, and defintely one of my favorite movies.

"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 – “...
