Garth Franklin mit einer ersten Kritik zu Spielbergs Oscar-Anwärter Munich:
At two and half hours its certainly in need of more time for editing. Speeches are repetitive, and some of the family scenes could’ve been done with a lot more efficiency. Spielberg is trying for an award with this and despite its fence-sitting problems, it still is a powerful, gripping and intriguing tale even if its even-handedness and rote attempts sympathy may undermine its dramatic power. An old-fashioned cautionary tale with a smart sensibility that whilst not a hit out of the park, is a very admirable effort.
