I was not expecting this kind of film for something based on historical events. It's a great assasin first with a straight forward direction that is easily followed. It also shows the tremendous toll this line of work puts on the human psyche with Eric Bana bringing in the best performance I've ever seen him portray on screen.Yet again Spielberg proves he's the master of suspense. Experiencing not only the intense moments as the play out on the edge of your seat, but feeling the same paranoia Bana experiences. For such a long film, I didn't look at the time once as it drew me in with ever bit of action and every line of dialogue! One of Spielberg's best!


This movie is based on an incident which happened in the Munich Olympics where Israeli-an athletes were killed by the Black September organization. For taking revenge against the terrorist organization Israel organizes a group of 5 people and then takes a revenge on them.There are some dialogues which support the Palestinians not making them as strong villains. In the group of 5 people each one are from different profession and how will they take revenge on them is the rest of the story.This movie story is simple but lots of complications will be going through it because the person who gives details of the terrorists will be susceptible in nature. The movie has really some strong dialogues and the scenes were real. As the movie is based on true events we will be astonished to know that these are the kind of things which are happening in the real world. No need to tell about Steven Spielberg, the master of film making. This movie is a good movie but a bit lengthy because of the running time.

Munich is the most underrated film of Spielberg, is very little spoken, whenever you speak of Spielberg, comes in your mind films like Schindler List, Saving Private Ryan, Jurassic Park and Jaws, Munich is rarely mentioned, what it is sad, because Munich in my opinion along with Saving Private Ryan is the best two Spielberg films (the ones that I saw), the script is good, has great dialogue, the direction is excellent, Spielberg manages to make the film that has three hours does not get tedious, the soundtrack is good, the cast is great, Eric Bana is excellent, the chemistry of the 5 major players is very good, the film is violent, has very violent times, plans to assassinate the terrorists are very good, are moments you waiting to see, and the action scenes are great, Spielberg rarely leaves to be desired in those moments, Munich is a great movie with a great cast and full of great moments, perhaps the last great movie Spielberg unfortunately an underrated film. Note 10


I don't usually write reviews on IMDb.com but after seeing this, I felt compelled to so here goes. It isn't often that I come across films like this or watch them but when I do I do enjoy it immensely. Coming from Steven Spielberg, I really expected a CGI fest or some sort of other "wow" factor. Well label me as surprised because I can honestly say that I think that this was the first Spielberg film that I would call a truly adult film: not adult as in "top of the shelf adult" (you dirty minders...you know who you are) but as an adult story. Non of the directors usual sentimentality or divulging into simplistic child like fantasy here. Based on the true story of the Black September aftermath, this film was a slow build up of tension and when it was at its peak, it threw in more tension. Yes I was bored through some of the scenes but the boredom (for me anyway) added to the tension and mood. It has been a long time since I've seen a film in which the emotions of the characters carry the film like this and I found it refreshing to see. The assassinations/murders as they happen are quick, brutal and downright shocking. Even if the viewer is clued up on the history of Black September...it still is a nail biting ride. A thinking mans film that answers some questions and leaves the viewer to ask some questions. Recommended.
