Synopsis

Three-time Academy AwardŽ-winning director-producer Steven Spielberg directs Munich, an historical thriller set in the aftermath of the 1972 massacre of 11 Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics.

Munich recounts the dramatic story of the secret Israeli squad assigned to track down and assassinate 11 Palestinians believed to have planned the 1972 Munich massacre -- and the personal toll this mission of revenge takes on the team and the man who led it. Eric Bana (Troy) stars as the Mossa... [Get complete synopsis]

Amazing retelling of tragic events...I was only semi-aware of the story going into it. Knew about the hostages, but not about the assassins sent to seek revenge. Eric Bana does a very convincing job (actually, everyone does) and this is pretty much non-stop gripping thriller material for 3 hours. There are no easy answers here either, no sides taken, just violence begetting violence. Also, my first viewing of Daniel Craig - the new James Bond. I can see it, he'll be good.
Plus the best CGI'd Israelis ever! (joking)
Anyways, this ranks among Spielberg's best in his 'serious filmmaker' mode.

Well, I have to say this. Munich is Speilbergo's best serious film. Better than Schindler's List, better than Amistad. (of nothing better than Raiders of the Lost Ark!).

Good political thriller. Good use of cinematography. Reasonable level of debate, without the normal Speilberg-beat-you-over-the-head approach.

A good time had by all. (except that I went by myself!)

Best line of the film:

"Don't fuck with the Jews!"

I almost forgot how good Geoffrey Rush was in his limited role. I would give him a supporting Oscar nod for this. This guy can do it all, great range.

okay.
2 sides to my story here. This was a VERY BAD viewing experience for the following reason. Anat comes home from work and has rented Munich for our evening viewing. Before the movie I am busy baby-proofing the house. I bought this padded stuff to cover the staircase as the staircase sticks out from the railing (kinda hard to describe) and the corners could be very dangerous if the baby should knock her head on one of them. As I am bending down to measure the lowest step, I stand up quickly and SMASH the top of my head on one of the higher steps (which had yet to be padded). The corner actually sliced me open and I was lying on the florr kicking & screaming bleeding from the top of my balding head. Anat is screaming "Deril! Deril! What happened!!??" The baby starts crying and the dog starts licking my feet (thanks Milo). Now we contamplated going to the hospital (since I have had a concussions before, but we decided against it. I now have a SPLITTING head ache and my head has been throbbingall night (no dirty jokes needed here please), not to mention that it has swelled up and I have a cartoonish looking bump on my head. The bump has a gash on it...I look like a freaking clown. And NOW we decide to sit and watch this heavy, 3 hour movie with a horrible head ache. We had to pause severAL TIMES JUST TO PUT ICE ON IT (oops, sorry).

and now the punchline...Anat says we should be Darrell-proofing the house before we baby-proof it..........ZING!

Anyways, to the movie. Exceptional story. i actually knew very little of the Munich situation. Acting was excellent all round. I agree that Rush has great range and should have had a nomination for this. He could even play Silly Sailor & Dr clownies. If you havn't seen this yet, you owe it to yourself to watch it. Although long, it was compelling to the end.

Deril, as great a film as it is, I wouldn't say anyone 'owes it to themselves' to see it. It's not for everyone, and it won't change the world.
You owe it to yourselves to see 'Pee-Wee's Big Adventure".

whoa, I didn\\\'t mean it THAT seriously. I just mean it was a great movie and I can\\\'t see too many people being dissapointed seeing it. In other wards, if you go to Blockbuster next weekend and you looking at Big Momma\\\'s House 2 or Munich....take Munich

I saw this movie a few weeks ago and forgot to post.

I really liked it. It was cool to see how these assasins operate. The story itself is fairly straightforward.

Definitly worth a viewing.

bunch of bastards. It was really serious and I could have had serious head injuries. Glad you can all laugh at my pain. My mom wanted me to go to the hospital today and check it out.

Hey, I lived with ALL of you ('cept Rob).
Insensitive?!?
I seem to recall a certain roommate who did dishes ONCE! I had to take a picture cuz I couldn't believe it!
Let's see, there was the time I came home to discover the furniture all over the place and upside down because while I was away, a certain roommate decided to invite Gabe and Zeidel over for a furniture fight.
Must I go on??
Insensitive INDEED, fucker.

Oh, and as far as the seriousness of Deril's head injury - it wasn't serious enough to stop him from posting it here and adding funny pictures. Hell, he stayed home and watched movies!

Mitch you bastard! I could have been dead! The injury was actually quite bad and my headaches havn't gone away. I may go check it out tonight at the hospital in fact (keep in mind I'm had concussions before so this is no good for me). I guess my insensitive brother feels that even with some pain I can't sit on my keaster and watch a movie, then talk about it on this site (which is one of my reasons for living I might add). Mitch is Jelous because our mommy came in to stay with me while I had a boo-boo on my keppi. She thought it was pretty serious. Oh Mitch, you insesitive prick!

Ps. Master Woodsman, thanks for the warm wishes at least SOMEONE cares about my massive headwound :)

Again, Deril, I hope all goes well. It sounds like you had a pretty nasty bump. At least your grammar and spelling look fine, so there doesn't appear to be any major damage.

And to Mitchy, I believe I did the dishes TWICE, not once. But I may be mistaken.

PS: You were the best roommate so far.
