Audience Reviews for Sword of Gideon

A well acted HBO movie from nearly 30 years ago. The acting is very good. The story is based after the horrible events at the Munich Olympics in '72. Not fully believable - these 5 guys appeared to have it too easy - but the story is intriguing. The movie would have been better by cutting out the last 20 minutes or so, but still, a very good political drama.
