After much debate, the Israeli government sent an elite commando unit to raid the airfield and release the hostages.

Action Mixed With Interpretive Dance Scenes - Fail
It's not easy to follow this story because it's intercut with ever more interpretive dance scenes.
The final actions scene must have been one of the worst cut and most pretentious action I've ever seen. There have been many movies imitating The Godfather's intercutting of violence with other rituals of society, but this movie takes the care. I've rarely seen anything this ridiculous.
