64. Munich (2005)

Leonard Maltin's Rating :
Should be :

IMDB Rating : 7.7

Rotten Tomatoes Rating : 78%

Rotten Tomatoes Synopsis: "Steven Spielberg's examination of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the aftermath of the Munich assassinations is politically even-handed and cinematically visceral."

Leonard says in his review: "A seeming lack of focus, and a feeling of treading familiar ground, dissipates the impact of key suspense scenes."

A fascinating story that plays out like a mystery suspense thriller. I don't get the "lack of focus" comment at all. The movie tried to be even handed in telling a story that really has no winners. The Palestinian - Israeli story is one that needs to be discussed and this movie helps begin the discussion very well.

Stephen Spielberg is a tremendous director and I think he was very brave and courageous to make this film. It is a movie that needs to be seen.
