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

Dorah Bloch (Trudy Weiss) is listed as one of the casualties of the raid, but she didn't die during the raid. Bloch, who had been travelling with her son, became ill early in the siege, and was sent to a hospital in nearby Kampala, Uganda. It has been proven that Bloch was murdered, on the orders of President Idi Amin, Jr. (Nonso Anozie), as retaliation for the Israeli raid. See more »

An interesting watch
30 March 2018 | by martin-zalcmanSee all my reviews

I gotta say, i cant give any credence to these 1/10 reviews that say this movie is biased against israel or that it sympathises with the terrorists. I thought israel and it's officials/soldiers were depicted in as fair a light as anyone can ask for. As for (some) of the terrorists, yes the movie shows their human side, but rightly so. It seems some of these guys didnt want things to escalate the way they did. And its only fair to show that in the movie. All in all i felt like things were shown in a decently objective way. Not too crazy about the interpretive dancing bits tho.
