Munich

Munich.

This is a great movie; brutally real and in a sense you feel rather lacking emtion on the surface. I will admit that I do not know much about the Munich games and what the real-life events were, but that section of the movie does pack a punch.

I was engrossed by the story, but not by the characters; you didnt get any real sense of why this mild mannered ‘part-time’ Mosad agent agree to take on this seemingly impossible and daunting mission. I guess that is the nature of spying, why do people do it, other than a love of their own country……

The one thing that does ‘worry’ me is that in 10, 20 or 50 years people will remember the movie, inspired by real events and not the real history….. much like Rose’s blue diamond on Cameron’s Titanic and Kevin Costners’ DA in JFK.
