Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's a smart, mesmerizing and often angry film, from a truly confident filmmaker, but it remains, maddeningly, just beyond our grasp."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"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."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"This punishing, borderline amoral picture is Spielberg at his most bleak, and most challenging. It refuses to pick sides and resonates in unsettling ways."
‑ Luke Goodsell, Empire Magazine Australasia
"Laceratingly charged, thunderstriken virtually, by Spielberg's deeply felt moral analysis"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"A longing for home is the central core to Spielberg's powerful dissertation."
‑ Rob Humanick, Projection Booth
"Everything that keeps it from being lovable could be looked upon as a virtue, and everything about it is intentional."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"The ultimate problem with Munich is that it's looking for a clear-cut answer that doesn't exist. And while it frames its final act as an argument, it's an argument it's having with itself."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"Munich is an important story to be sure but an important movie isn't the same as a great one. It's told in such a muddled way the message is easily lost, except for the moments when it is hammered home at the cost of story-telling believability."
‑ Joshua Starnes, ComingSoon.net
"An utter masterpiece."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Munich is one of those rare films that transcends art and taps directly into the consciousness of a hate-battered world."
‑ Brandon Fibbs, BrandonFibbs.com
"Munich ricochets all over the place, but it hits its target dead-on."
‑ Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"It's a brutal, merciless, somber picture, utterly devoid of the heart-tugging sentimentality that always creeps into even his best films. It is also, unfortunately, timid when it should be bold and clunky when it should be eloquent."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"Spielberg described Munich as his 'prayer for peace,' yet his movie strangely lacks the eloquence and yearning of a prayer."
‑ Jay Antani, Cinema Writer
"There's about an hour's worth of greatness in Munich."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"Munich also succeeds where some of Spielberg's other films have not in its lack of his usual sentimentality."
‑ Felix Gonzalez Jr., DVD Review
