Movie Descriptions

(New) 7 Days to Entebbe

Rated PG 13 For Drug Use, Brief Strong Language, Smoking, Some Thematic Material and Violence
Running time 1 Hour, 47 Min.
The events surrounding the hijacking of an Air France plane in June 1976. The flight, which originated in Israels Ben Gurion airport, was taken over by two members of the Popular Front For The Liberation Of Palestine and two German members of the Revolutionary Cells, Wilfried Böse (aka Boni), and Brigitte Kuhlmann (Daniel Brühl and Rosamund Pike). The plane was redirected to Entebbe, in a Uganda governed by the famously unstable Idi Amin.
Padilhas film cuts between the rapidly deteriorating conditions in the airport terminal where the hostages are held, and the corridors of power in Israel, where Prime minister Yitzhak Rabin (Lior Ashkenazi) and defence minister Shimon Peres (Eddie Marsan) butt heads over the correct method of response.
The bold rescue by commandos from the Israeli Defense Forces is the stuff that action cinema is made of. And, not surprisingly, several films have previously explored the event (Victory At Entebbe, Raid On Entebbe and The Last King Of Scotland). This version doesnt tread lightly over the politically sensitive material, but does maintain a propulsive pace and a sense of mounting jeopardy.
