The film masterfully strides a fine line, neither glamorizing nor demonizing the RAF. That balance leaves the film almost too objective. Its divided into two somewhat dissimilar parts, the formation of the RAF and it's early terror campaign and the founders subsequent years in jail. Germany had plenty of issues in the postwar period and the Der Baader Meinhof Komplex's attempt to encompass a lot of them neutrally, left it feeling flat.
