Drama: After terrorists hijack an Air France flight bound for Paris from Tel Aviv and fly their hostages to Uganda, Israeli politicians and commandos plan a risky, long-range rescue mission.
It's 1976 and two Palestinians from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine - External Operations along with two German revolutionaries, Brigitte Kuhlmann (ROSAMUND PIKE) and Wilfried Böse (DANIEL BRUHL), hijack Air France Flight 139 after boarding the Tel Aviv to Paris flight during a stopover in Athens. Along with the crew that includes flight engineer Jacques Le Moine (DENIS MENOCHET), the four hijackers have taken 248 passengers hostage -- the majority of which are Jewish and Israeli -- and fly them to Entebbe Airport in Uganda where dictator Idi Amin (NONSO ANOZIE) welcomes the terrorists and has them use a no-longer-used terminal to hold their captives.

Their demands are a multi-million dollar ransom along with the immediate release of 53 Palestinian and Pro-Palestinian militants. As Israel has a long-standing policy of not negotiating with terrorists, Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin (LIOR ASHKENAZI) finds himself in a difficult situation. While he believes peace must be brokered between Israelis and Palestinians in general, he knows he can't give in so easily while also realizing that no action could result in the murder of hundreds of innocent people.

While conferring with his cabinet that includes Defense Minister Shimon Peres (EDDIE MARSAN) along with General Motta Gur (MARK IVANIR) and others, Yitzhak contemplates the possibility of staging a rescue mission, something that would ultimately involve many Israeli soldiers, such as Ziv (BEN SCHNETZER) whose girlfriend, Sarah (ZINA ZINCHENKO), is a dancer. With the days passing by one by one, it's anyone's guess as to what the terrorists and Israeli government and military will ultimately do.

Some teens, especially if they're history buffs or have some interest in the real-life story, might show some interest. Otherwise, it doesn't seem too likely.
For violence, some thematic material, drug use, smoking and brief strong language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
