Munich

Critics Consensus

Munich can't quite achieve its lofty goals, but this thrilling, politically even-handed look at the fallout from an intractable political conflict is still well worth watching.

News & Interviews for Munich

Critic Reviews for Munich

All Critics (210) | Top Critics (42) | Fresh (163) | Rotten (47)

  • Eric Bana gives a performance that deserves something more serious than an Oscar. It's a sublimely convincing portrayal of a man who is travelling far from who he is in order to defend who he is.

    February 12, 2020 | Full Review…
  • It's certainly the best mainstream thriller since The Insider, and an audacious political statement from a director who has everything to lose. Don't miss it.

  • It's a smart, mesmerizing and often angry film, from a truly confident filmmaker, but it remains, maddeningly, just beyond our grasp.

    December 27, 2005 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Everything that keeps it from being lovable could be looked upon as a virtue, and everything about it is intentional.

    December 27, 2005 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Munich ricochets all over the place, but it hits its target dead-on.

    December 27, 2005 | Rating: 3.5/4
  • Like the superior Syriana, this isn't a Middle Eastern tale that offers much hope. It's just bloodstained history. And if we don't remember that history, Spielberg says, we learn nothing.

    One of Spielberg's strongest films. Munich is dark, intelligent, thrilling and very well written.

    Overlong and lacking in closure, Munich still manages to engage thanks to a memorable band of unlikely teammates and a constant sense of danger and unpredictability.

    I'm not sure exactly what to say about this film. A lot of controversy has been started over its accuracy and political stances, and yes I did wonder about that too, but this is a decent and dark film by Spielberg. It remains politically neutral but is also unrestrained and violent. I would say this is about as effective as say, Saving Private Ryan (you can determine for youself if that is a good or bad thing).
