A rescue like no other... Animated story of the 1976 hostage rescue in Entebbe , Uganda, narrated in first-person by the first commando to enter the building, through the perspective of his own family's rescue in the holocaust.
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

At one point, Idi Amin can be seen wearing a Glengarry, which is a Scottish military cap, with a red and white tartan ribbon around it. Amin had been in the King's African Rifles, and suffered considerable racism from British officers. The only one to show him any respect was a Scotsman, and thenceforth had an unreciprocated affection for Scotland, even considering himself a pretender to the Scottish throne. See more »

While a lot of such Special Forces operations make occur worldwide, their translation into movies may themselves not be so good. Not in this movie's case. The Israeli raid on entebbe is quite unique as far as anti hijacking operations go but this movie is pretty flawless in portraying what and how it happened? Authentic weapons, equipment, aircraft and settings have all been used. The acting is excellent and even the general human reactions to the hijacking have been portrayed quite well and the reality of civilian casualties which occurred has also been included. From beginning to end, this movie never drags and is one of the best I've ever seen.
