MUNICH

 

Steven Spielberg's gripping thriller tells about the Israeli government's boldest and most aggressive assassination plot in modern history--a payback to eight Palestinian militants for the brutal massacre of 11 Israelis at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich, Germany.

This film holds you in its grip for the entire running time, with a powerful, disturbing, violent, well-done, haunting movie experience.

Steven Spielberg gives us a thought-provoking thriller showing the aftermath of the 1972 Munich Olympics (by Black September, as it became known).

It's a movie that challenges the viewer both morally & ethically to explore the eye for an eye escalation that is vengeance, and the futility of such acts, that resonate just as much today as it did back then.

Steven Spielberg's adult political thriller is a work of unsettling suspense of reality.

Starting off with nervous news coverage from the 1972 Olympic hostage crisis, which ended with the murder of 11 Israeli athletes by Palestinian terrorists, this film is a visual experience.

The director stages the revenge mission as it might actually have occurred & in the end of this movie the truths of its action reveals how political murder, even when it seems justified, lets no one off the hook.

The picture needs to be viewed as a statement on our world of terror.
