'Munich' 2005 Film: Deeply Flawed But Most Satisfying Steven Spielberg Effort in Decades

'Munich' 2005 film cover. 'Munich' 2005 film review: Steven Spielberg tackles political time-space continuum in wildly uneven but ultimately satisfying thriller Alternately intriguing and irritating, thought-provoking and banal, subtle and patronizing, the biggest surprise about Steven Spielberg's Munich (2005) is that it – however grudgingly – works.

Unfortunately, inflation and currency fluctuations make it all but impossible to figure out the number of tickets sold globally for past James Bond movies; but even if Skyfall hasn't managed to surpass the mammoth worldwide success of Guy Hamilton's Goldfinger (1964) and Young's Thunderball (1965), both starring Sean Connery, it has surely gotten pretty close. In the Skyfall cast: Daniel Craig as James Bond, Judi Dench […]
