Quotes

Gen. Harrari: [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.

Above average TV movie
3 November 2000 | by (Denver, CO) – See all my reviews

Very good film, above average than most TV movies. The first-rate acting and storyline makes this very watchable, from beginning to end. You actually feel for the characters, and identify with their burdens and shortcomings. Highly recommend. I only regret it's not out on video.
