Raid on Entebbe

Preview by Jack Foley

RAID On Entebbe tells the amazing true story of a daring mission by Israeli commandos to free hostages of a terrorist hijacking at Entebbe Airport in Uganda.

This classic action movie recounts one of the greatest rescues in history and comes to UK DVD for the first time ever on March 26, 2012 thanks to Second Sight.

In 1976, four terrorists 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, but kept 100 passengers who were Israelis or Jews on board.

The story follows the Israeli Cabinet’s difficult decision to launch a top-secret military raid to free the hostages and the tough and daring operation that ensued.

Directed by Irvin Kershner this Golden Globe winning film stars a stand out cast with Peter Finch as Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, alongside Charles Bronson and Martin Balsam.
