Raid On Entebbe tells the amazing true story of a daring mission by Israeli commandos to free hostages from a terrorist hijacking at Entebbe Airport in Uganda and is presented here in its full length version.
In 1976 four militants hijacked an Air France plane, diverting it to Entebbe, their cause was to secure the release of militants in Israel and four other countries. They held the hostages captive for three days before releasing a large number, keeping 100 passengers who were Israelis or Jews on board. What followed has gone down in history as one of the most daring rescue operations ever mounted.
Directed by Irvin Kershner this Golden Globe winning film grips to the very end. The stand out cast includes Peter Finch as Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, alongside Charles Bronson and Martin Balsam.

The Bogs Dollocks of all versions!

It's about time! Of all the Far East, American, and anywhere else DVD versions of this film, THIS version by Second Sight as a PAL Region 2 DVD is the BESTEST of the BEST! The picture quality is superb for it's age (1977), the sound is in stereo, and it has an index of named chapters! No extra features, but that doesn't matter. After all, this was originally a TV movie made soon after the real-life events, and this film sticks very closely to the truth without over-glamorising. It's a 4.3 ratio movie (typical of TV in the 1970s), but so what! I can't praise this film enough which, in my opinion, is also the best of three versions made (the other two were Victory at Entebbe and Operation Thunderbolt).
