Lay and I went to see Munich Friday night at the Veteran’s 24. This movie is very similar to “The Sword of Gideon.” The Sword Of Gideon (1986) documents Israel’s subsequent counteractions against the perpetrators of Munich.

Munich is a good movie, but I felt that I had seen it before. However, as you would expect from Spielberg, the cinematography is excellent. The special effects are reasonable, and well done…merely adding to the story. I thought the entire cast did an excellent job with their roles.

I’d say its a movie worth seeing, especially given that there is a large audience that has never seen the Sword of Gideon.
