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 Israeli soldiers was Lt. Col. Jonathan "Yoni" Netanyahu.. Written by

At the beginning of the movie, the passengers appear to be boarding the Air France plane from the rear left door. In all the subsequent shots, they are seen entering from the front left door. See more »
Intelligence informs us they will begin killing hostages on Sunday.
The string has run out, Hmm?
Then why are we debating the military plan? Let them go!
Because it is not perfect.
Yitzhak, that's a joke! Here you are concerned with perfection, and... And we don't have a choice!
There will be two hundred of our best people on those planes... I damned well do have a choice!

Considering that this movie was made in 1977, surrounding events that happened not to long ago from then, I would certainly place it in a higher position than it currently is. With regards to authenticity, the Israeli and Mossad PR department seems to given full cooperation when it came to all the details surrounding the event because absolutely nothing seemed out of place in the sets. Every piece of equipment, uniform and aircraft were surprisingly authentic. All this would have been useless without a proper cast and the same is most certainly delivered. There isn't a lot of action until the climax but even the slower sequences will keep you gripped until that arrives. This movie is very detailed, realistic and authentic and would be classified as a must watch in my book.
