[Speaking at his first meeting with the unit]
There are seven men on your list. Each one of them is responsible for the death of innocent people, some of them Jewish, like the athletes at Munich, some of them Christians, like the pilgrims at Lod Airport. You will be responsible for the death of each one of them. An eye for an eye. You are Israeli justice. You are the Sword of Gideon... unsheathed.

Tense, fascinating film with several chilling scenes
This tense, fascinating film details how men are recruited into the Israeli Mossad to search for and kill those responsible for the Munich Olympics murders. Also, we see how the men are pressured to stay in the group. Great acting and real locations make it all the more compelling. The morality of what they're doing is questioned at several points, and we see some very chilling assasination scenes.
The ending is a bit of a let-down, but then since it is based on actual events . . . I am not Jewish but found this film to be suspenseful and very involving -- a humdinger.
