    Though we do revisit the event in the editing, Steven Spielberg's Munich isn't really about Palestinian terrorists killing Israeli athletes at the '72 Olympic games, but about the secret Mossad hit team that then spent years killing those responsible for the attack. When the elaborate revenge begins, you may fear it'll be repetitive to see each terrorist leader kills in a different city, but 1) there's too much variety for that to become a problem, and 2) the repetition is part of the narrative as it drains the humanity away from the protagonists. This is a descent into the kind of hell where you will start to wonder if the heroes are any better than the terrorists, and the terrorists any less righteous than the heroes. Who here is acting legitimately? Obviously, this is particularly true of the Israeli-Palestinian situation, but Spielberg dares us to ask those questions about the War on Terror as we understand it today, worldwide. Munich does tend to go long into its epilogues; not saying they weren't necessary to make his point, but I the film might work without them. 4 years 6 months ago
