When an Elite Israeli special force team hit a humanitarian ship that was headed to Gaza (Palestinian) in International waters middle in the night with helicopters, 9 civilians were killed during heavy Israeli fire. All members of the boat were civilians, unarmed (not counting the sticks and kitchen knives) compared to the heavy artillery the Israeli soldiers had.
It created an enormous event in the Middle East; the media was all over it, especially in Turkey which has led to a political conflict between two countries.
The producers and creators of Kurtlar Vadisi (Valley of the Wolves) and the franchises of the series had announced to produce a movie which will tell the story of what happened that night. It was critically acclaimed so to say in the Middle East and released internationally. I'm one of the lucky ones who could watch this movie in Germany, which was first banned by FSK (Freiwillige Selbstkontrolle Filmwirtschaft) for accused violence and political reasons. After an appeal the film was released for audience above the age of 18.
For those who have watched "Munich" before the story line what expects you is pretty much the same. 11 Israeli athletes were killed in 1972 during the Olympics in Munich and an Israeli special team was assembled to get revenge and kill the responsible ones for the attack.
In this movie you have the same element: Polat Alemdar and his men are going to find the persons responsible of the attack on the humanitarian ship, and punish them.
It brings the drama in Palestinian to screen; innocent killing and conflicts in Gaza. I myself found the level of violence and killing in some scene rather unnecessary. Avoiding some political references and lines would have made this movie lot better.
There were no obvious and bothering political messages in Munich, despite some of critics described the movie as an "Israeli propaganda movie". If you think the same as I am, you will not have a problem watching this movie.
Let me remind you it's not a 100 million dollar movie. It has a big budget compared to the production in the Middle East but you will see the difference in production and some authenticity flaws if you compare it to American blockbusters.
