7 DAYS IN ENTEBBE

7 DAY IN ENTEBBE movie poster

Janet's TAKE: #7DaysInEntebbe is a slog of waiting with no sympathetic characters and dehumanizes the hostages. Grade/D
Jose Padilha use of symbolic dance sequences as a metaphor comes across as
unnecessary time fillers. The talents of Daniel Bruhl and Rosamund Pike are wasted here.

Synopsis:
A shocking act of terrorism leads to one of the most daring hostage rescue missions ever attempted in 7 Days in Entebbe, a riveting thriller inspired by true events. In the summer of 1976, an Air France jet traveling from Tel Aviv to Paris is taken over in midair by four hijackers; two Palestinians and two left-wing German radicals. When the plane is diverted to an abandoned terminal at Entebbe Airport in Uganda, the terrified passengers become bargaining chips in a deadly political standoff. As the likelihood of finding a diplomatic solution fades, the Israeli government sets in motion an extraordinary plan to free the prisoners before time runs out.  -Focus Features
