7 Days in Entebbe (2018) Rated PG-13

Inspired by the true events of the 1976 hijacking of an Air France flight en route from Tel Aviv to Paris and the daring rescue mission that followed. Starring Batsheva Dance Company, Zina Zinchenko, Ben Schnetzer, Daniel Brühl, and Rosamund Pike.

This film could’ve been so much better. So much time has passed since this hijacking, and it isn’t remembered the world over, nor is the daring rescue mission. This being said, the lack of information presented in the film sorely shows. Then you have the side story of the soldier and his girlfriend who’s a dancer. The emotional conflict going back and forth between the two stories just doesn’t mesh or enhance the story. I felt the filmmakers were trying to make the terrorist out to be sympathetic, but they missed the mark regarding how terrifying the event actually was. This film is not worth a watch.
