Storyline

In July 1976, an Air France flight from Tel-Aviv to Paris via Athens was hijacked and forced to land in Entebbe, Uganda. The Jewish passengers were separated and held hostage in demand to release many terrorists held in Israeli prisons. After much debate, the Israeli government sent an elite commando unit to raid the airfield and release the hostages.

Trivia

Although Dorah Bloch is listed as one of the casualties of the raid she did not die during the raid itself. Bloch, who had been travelling with her son, had been sent to a hospital in nearby Kampala when she became ill early on in the siege. It has been proven that Bloch was murdered directly on the orders of Idi Amin as retaliation for the Israeli raid. See more »

Goofs

As the Israeli soldiers train for the rescue mission, a Sea King helicopter can be seen in the background several times. However, Israel never had any Sea Kings. See more »

The Original is the best
18 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

They changed the true story to make it look like the terrorists (hijackers) were decent guys. My suggestion is that you see the original movie (Entebbe 1977) which is far more accurate.
