Storyline

Based on a true Military operation by Israeli commandos. An Air France flight is hijacked by the PFLP. The plane has about 100 Jewish passengers. The plane is grounded in Uganda. Israelis would not negotiate. The movie then shows how less than 500 soldiers actually flew so far and rescued the passengers in one of the most successful Military operations in history. The only casualty for Israely soldiers was Lt. Col. Jonathan "Yoni" Netanyahu.. Written by Nikhil Deo <nikhil_deo@hotmail.com>

Very Gripping
28 November 1998 | by (Berkeley,CA) – See all my reviews

I had no doubts or opinions about the story line since it was based on an actual incident.But the direction was very good and the suspense was steadily built up until the climax. 2 hours of solid,non-stop thrill.
