In 1976, an Air France flight out of Israel is hijacked by Palestinian and German terrorists led by Wilfried (Daniel Brühl) and Brigitte (Rosamund Pike). The plane is forced to land in Entebbe, Uganda, where the Jewish passengers are held hostage. Instead of giving in to the hijackers' demands to release Palestinian prisoners, the Israeli government sends in a commando team for a rescue mission. Eddie Marsan co-stars. Directed by José Padilha. Based on true events.~Kaitlin Elise Miller
It's a well made movie, but the story focus is more about the dilemma of the Israeli government, deciding how to respond than the actual raid. There is also a recurring theme of an Israeli dance company which I found distracting. The Blu-ray has excellent audio and video.
I think that “7 Days in Entebbe” is one of the greatest action/historical films of all-time and it is also one of my favorite action/historical films of all-time. I have seen and enjoyed this film several times and I also think that “7 Days in Entebbe” has a lot of entertaining, exciting and enjoyable action, mystery and suspense including an amazing and original storyline.
The movie has a couple of good performances in it.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Friendly staff thanks
Good movie with great historical impact. However the story was profoundly summarized from the original movie and it would have more impact if that was included. Also the scenes of the journey back to after rescue.
Great acting nice photography and music characters were well drawn too. I enjoyed the suspense and action. I was in high school when real incident happened but this was an accurate interpretation. Glad I own it. Jake
My wife and I were able to see this movie in our local movie theater and were happy we were able to purchase it at a good price from BestBuy and we are looking forward to watching it as often as we want.
