If you wonder why I will be seeing many films on a Wednesday, it is because of the "Orange Wednesday" offer where you get 2 tickets for the price of 1. Even bad films seem better if you only pay half the normal price.
Just returned from seeing "Munich" with Lydia and this was not a bad film at all. For me, it was making a point to show that the life of an assassin is really a less-than-glamorous life in reality. The group sent on a mission to take out the ring-leaders of the Munich kidnapping are continually put into dangerous situations more of their own making and less of their targets’.
The film poses quite a few unresolved questions that needed to be left unresolved (unlike countless other Hollywood platters) giving the viewer a chance to find their own views on the effectiveness of revenge.

One thought on “Munich”
I have to say that I’ve never thought of being an assassin as being “glamorous”. But, I can see where some people might. And Hollywood tends to like that kind of thing. But, back to the topic.
I’ve heard of this movie. But, beyond that I don’t really know much about it, other than what you’ve said. Yet, revenge isn’t usually all that effective in my opinion.
Speaking of assassins. Mr. and Mrs. Smith, I suppose, is one film that does glorify being one. Yet, with it’s light and airy feel, and constant comedy, it’s as far away from the truth as you can get 🙂
