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.

I don't know how you wreck a story this good.
26 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

Should have been good...but it wasn't. As a 15 yr old I was early in my social consciousness when this hijacking took place. I remember the concern and the tension felt even here in the US over the fate of the hostages and the jubilation I felt when they were rescued. The real life events had it all...the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, a bold hijacking, a daring and unlikely rescue, even the flamboyantly dangerous Idi Amin! All elements for really good cinema but it didn't work in this case. A lot of effort was spent on humanizing the hijackers/terrorists but little on the humanizing of the hostages. Yes we all know that terrorists are fighting for a cause. It's their methods that are so objectionable. They kill innocent people to make their point, which is never justified; I don't want to identify with them. The artsy odd dance routine was excellent and interesting. Unfortunately, it added nothing to the story, it just distracted from the human drama. The movie was poorly done enough that it became a welcome distraction toward the end.
