Munich (2005)
#93 on my Top 100 List
Between this and Defiance, Daniel Craig proves that he's never more badass than when he's playing a kick-ass Jew, except when he's playing James Bond. With him and Eric Bana on the team sent to track down and destroy the terrorists responsible for the 1972 massacre of Jewish athletes at the Munich olympics, the terrorists really don't stand a chance. I especially like the way that they dealt with Eric Bana's character, since onoe really can't go through events like those in the film and not be changed by them. John Williams' score is perfect. I don't know how accurate this is in regards to the real reaction to the Munich killings, but this version of events makes for very good drama.
My Netflix rating: 5 stars
