Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Inspired by real events, Munich reveals the intense story of the secret Israeli squad assigned to track down and assassinate the 11 Palestinians believed to have planned the 1972 Munich massacre of 11 Israeli athletes — and the personal toll this mission of revenge takes on the team and the man who led it. Hailed as "tremendously exciting" (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone), Steven Spielberg's explosive suspense thriller garnered five Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director.

Review:

"Munich, Steven Spielberg's spectacularly gripping and unsettling new movie, is a grave and haunted film, yet its power lies in its willingness to be a work of brutal excitement. (Grade: A)" Entertainment Weekly

Review:

"As a thriller, Munich is efficient, absorbing, effective. As an ethical argument, it is haunting. And its questions are not only for Israel but for any nation that believes it must compromise its values to defend them." Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

Review:

"An unsparingly brutal look at two peoples all but drowning in a sea of their own blood, Munich is by far the toughest film of Steven Spielberg's career and the most anguished." Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

Review:

"In this age of feckless and unapologetic zealotry, with leaders whose passion for extremism has led to the lamentable results we see all around us, Munich's even-handed cry for peace is not an act of equivocation but one of bravery." Los Angeles Times

Review:

"Simply stated, Munich is Steven Spielberg's return to seriousness and his finest film in years." Boston Globe

Review:

"What a curious arc this movie has described: starting in terror, and ending up on the very brink of kitsch." Anthony Lane, The New Yorker
