100
A superbly taut and well-made thriller that jumps from Geneva to Rome, from Paris to Beirut, from Athens to Brooklyn, each lethal assignment staged with a mastery Hitchcock might envy.

Entertainment Weekly
Munich, Steven Spielberg's spectacularly gripping and unsettling new movie, is a grave and haunted film, yet its power lies in its willingness to be a work of brutal excitement.
100
New York Post
Masterful, atypically political - and flawlessly acted.
100
ReelViews
A film of uncommon depth, intelligence, and sensitivity.
90
A mesmerizing, richly nuanced inquiry into Israel's revenge of the Munich massacre of its athletes.
88
Bana is magnificent in the role.
60
Variety
Beautifully made pic will spur newsy media coverage and possible consternation on both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian divide, but members of the general public will be glancing at their watches rather than having epiphanies about world peace.
60
If he had told the story straight, without such hedging, and at half the length, it would have borne far more conviction.
50
Village Voice
The film is sluggish and repetitive, yet it exerts a certain clinical fascination.
40
Dallas Observer
It's too turgid and redundant to have any real impact. As a thriller, it barely thrills; as a lecture, it has nothing new to say.
