This film is based on the 1976 hijacking when 248 passengers of an Air France flight were taken hostage and forced to land in Uganda. The narrative unfolds from both sides: the effort by 2 of the hijackers to maintain control of the hostages and the plans by the Israeli government to handle the situation. There’s a lot of doubt and concern on one side and repetitive political discussion on the other. The natural potential for tension is never realized. Even the ultimate showdown, which is intercut with a contemporary dance number, is more frustrating than thrilling. The result is a listless encounter that will only be of interest only as a historical re-staging.

 

2.5 out of 5 stars (2.5 / 5)
