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.

Telling both sides of the story upsets 'anonymous reviewers'
13 June 2018 | by See all my reviews

Living in the US, it's rare to see a movie present both sides of a conflict, especially regarding the Israel and Palestine conflict. Right from the start, this movie takes a position as the neutral observer...are these 'Freedom Fighters' or 'Terrorists'? (probably depends on where you live) I came her fully expecting to see 1 star reviews upvoted to the top of the page by fake accounts. And that's what I found, unfortunately.

If hearing/watching both sides of a story bothers you, then you are, in fact, a propagandist. You're trying to control the narrative and you don't care about what actually happened, or why it happened.

Please, take a break from your flag waving. It's okay to listen to both sides. It's okay for other people to hear both sides. It's okay to acknowledge mistakes made by both sides. This is how we learn.

All that said, it was a bit slow lol. But I applaud the neutral viewpoint and hope to see many more movies like this.
