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.
