Caught Munich last week.

Spielberg redeemed himself after the horrendous Tom Cruise travesty War of the Worlds. Munich is everything War of the Worlds wasn't.
I maybe over-hyping it, but I loved this film. As if the story of the Munich Olympics wasn't interesting enough, the aftermath was downright fascinating. I'm positive that the assassinations didn't go down exactly the way Spielberg portrays it, but who cares? The story is as well told as any story told, and as a storyteller, Spielberg is unmatched.
The photography is predictably awesome. The performances, though probably not Oscar worthy, are very good. The violence and action are brutally real and the story is taut and indeed thrilling.
Well told, and worth the full-price of admission.
