      Audience Member Suspenseful and true to the story a great piece of 70s cinema Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member A good movie minus good action moments Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member I remember this playing out on television when I was a child. To those who condemn the movie, whether its cinematography or style, either you don't know what you're talking about (probably because you weren't alive then) or you don't know what you're talking about (probably because you weren't alive then) or you're racist and weren't alive then. It is an honest retelling of a horrible and chaotic time. This was not the only terrorist act then, but just one of many. The world MUST NEVER CAPITULATE to terrorism. No one would ever be safe if anyone did. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member After watching Steven Spielberg's Munich I can honestly say that this movie was very unconvincing and fairly weak. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member A well made TV docudrama from the 70s. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Interesting portrayal of the events surrounding the 1972 Olympics.

      Frank J. Avella Edge Media Network The casting is just plain bizarre. William Holden, one of the greats, plays the head of the Munich police - which makes very little sense. He doesn't bother attempting an accent so it's quite off-putting. Rated: B Dec 14, 2021 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Relates in a straight-forward and dry methodical way to the tragedy at the 1972 Munich Olympics. Rated: B- Feb 12, 2016 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...undoubtedly a vast improvement over Spielberg's nigh unwatchable Munich. Rated: 2.5/4 Jul 9, 2009 Full Review Scott Weinberg DVDTalk.com I watched 21 Hours to Munich with a careful eye trained for any sort of preachiness or "opinionizing" from either direction, and I was pleased to notice that stuff only by its absence. Rated: 4/5 Dec 5, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews
