Munich

   23 January 2006, mid-morning

I watched Munich on Saturday with Carvill and Mezan. I had pretty high expectations for the film after watching the kick-ass trailer. The movie is about an autonomous group of Mossad agents hunting down the terrorists who were involved in the murder of the Israeli athletes during the Munich Olympics. The movie is quite good, but not as good as I would have hoped. Everyone does a good job playing there respective parts, and the storyline is interesting, I just felt the film was missing something. I have been told that Sword of Gideon is a better retelling of this story, so I will need to check that out some time. Both Munich and Sword of Gideon are based on the book Vegence, by G. Jonas. I still think this film is worth watching. It is a good spy movie.

  1. The movie is quite good, but not as good as I would have hoped. Everyone does a good job playing there respective parts, and the storyline is interesting, I just felt the film was missing something.

    That’s an accurate/good description.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

 
Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
