    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    An unlovable movie. It's morally ambiguous, which means there's no real rooting interest. It's episodic, with the same kinds of episodes repeated over and over, so there's little sense of forward motion. It feels philosophically and politically confused, so there's no message to take from it. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    As a thriller, Munich is efficient, absorbing, effective. As an ethical argument, it is haunting. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    Masterful, atypically political - and flawlessly acted. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews
