A true story of survival, as a young couple's chance encounter leads them first to love, and then on the adventure of a lifetime as they face one of the most catastrophic hurricanes in recorded history.
The drug war on the U.S.-Mexico border has escalated as the cartels have begun trafficking terrorists across the US border. To fight the war, federal agent Matt Graver re-teams with the mercurial Alejandro.
Benicio Del Toro,
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.
Dorah Bloch is listed as one of the casualties of the raid, but she didn't die during the raid itself. Bloch, who had been traveling with her son, became ill early in the siege, and was sent to a hospital in nearby Kampala. It has been proven that Bloch was murdered, on the orders of Idi Amin, as retaliation for the Israeli raid. See more »
In the movie, the female German Baader Meinhof member is presented as relatively normal. Passengers have said she was extremely cruel, and shot specific people she disliked when the Israelis stormed the terminal. See more »
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.
