Another well done made for TV movie.
18 December 2005 | by (Kansas City, Kansas USA) – See all my reviews

An accurate portrayal of the events aboard the Italian cruise ship, Achille Lauro. Karl Malden accurately portrays the helpless victim of terrorist thugs. Most accurate of all is the brutality of the terrorists killing an unarmed man in a wheel chair and then throwing him overboard as witnessed by one of the ships porters. Leon Klinghoffer's defiance is conveyed very well by Karl Malden and seems to accurately reflect the actual events. Lee Grant is wonderful as the victims wife agonizing over the whereabouts of her husband. Her walking in front of the captured terrorists at the end probably is an accurate portrayal of the real Marilyn Klinghoffer's response to her loss.
