Jews? Who are we? For 2000 years, we have been born with a faith and a hope. But you, you Avner, were born with something else. You were born here. You can say to the world... "I am a Jew" and also "This is my home". We have a homeland again. A Jewish State. The State of Israel. It exists to protect us from our enemies and provide us with a haven in this world where we can live in peace. But they will not let us live in peace. Once again, they're killing and terrorizing Jews all over the world....

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.
