Flawed but accurate film depicts raw brutality of Palestinian extremists, 25 November 2005
Author: scooterwill98 from United States

A bit on the stilted side, but overall a historical depiction of the events on the Achille Lauro. Lancaster still shows his acting chops and the movie accurately depicts the murder of an old man in a wheelchair simply because he was Jewish. Thank God this film avoids the pitfalls of being politically correct and shows the true face of Islamic fascism in all its brutality. If only more filmmakers were as courageous as this film's producers. Hopefully this film will be remade with better dialogue and a few more big name stars. Kudos for bringing Eva Marie Saint out of virtual retirement. She radiates class and it is very much imparted to the Marilyn Klinghoffer character. With a little luck future generations will understand that the terrorism of innocents is never justified. It's even more true in regard to the treatment of wheelchair-bound elderly.
