“I went to see this movie without any knowledge of the RAF. I wasenu0026#39;t even born when the RAF was active. Still I could follow the story of the movie because, even though some figures are vague and get no introduction, the most important story lines are explained.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe movie follows the beginning, top and ending of the first RAF-members; Andreas Baader and Ulrike Meinhof in particular. The rest of the group doesenu0026#39;t get the big introduction Ulrike got but with so many interesting characters the film would get even longer then its 2.5 hours.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThat is inmediatly the biggest problem with the film; itu0026#39;s length. Because of the variety of events and characters, Der Baader-Meinhof complex never gets boring, but at some point in the movie you start to get irritated by the new events. It would be more wisely if the director had chosen to make a sequel, sothat the second RAF-members get the attention they deserve.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSo why 8 out of 10 stars? Simple, as an action-movie this is brilliant. The story is good and the movie doesenu0026#39;t tell more than it has to. The biggest achievement however is in my point of view the political statement. It doesenu0026#39;t make it. Der Baader-Meinhof complex tells the story of the RAF, but never approves the actions of the group, but also doesenu0026#39;t disapprove them. And that is a great achievement.”
