Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie isn't for kids. It deals with difficult ethical, political, and emotional issues, including terrorism, assassination, national identity, and personal responsibility. The film includes graphic violence: a fast-cut, swish-panny reenactment of the 1972 Black September assault on the Israeli athletes in their Olympic Village apartment, TV footage from that standoff, with cuts to tearful viewers (this ordeal serves as flashback material throughout the film). The assassinations portion includes images of explosions; shootings (mostly at close range, one sniper shot as well, resulting in a bloody head); dismembered limbs; bloody bodies; brain matter; a dead woman's exposed breasts and crotch. Characters drink and smoke. One man is left naked and dead following his night with a seeming prostitute (she's a paid assassin); a scene where the protagonist makes love to his wife is intercut with the murders of nine Israeli athletes at the Munich airport.

Sexual Content

Assassin left dead and naked in his bed; woman prostitute killed, with her breasts and crotch exposed; one extended sex scene intercut with murders of Israeli athletes at airport.

Violence

Scary-looking, fast-cut assault on athletes' Munich apartment; a little girl in danger scene; repeated images of shootings, explosions, knifings, and other harsh aggressions that come to weigh on the hero's conscience.

Language

Cursing in frustration and anger (f-word).

Social Behavior

Palestinian terrorists kill athletes; Israeli-sanctioned assassins come to question their own counterterrorist tactics.

Consumerism
