The true events of the 1976 hijacking of an Air France flight en route from Tel Aviv to Paris, and the most daring rescue mission ever attempted.
Crime Drama Thriller - This is a drama/thriller based on the real-life flight hijacking that
took place in 1976 Greece. Daniel Bruhl and Rosamund Pike are the
most familiar faces here and have the most prominent roles, but this
is generally an ensemble piece. Some violence, language, and adult
subject matter make the film not for kids.
PROFANITY: 1 F-word; 1 S-word; 2 others. SEX/NUDITY: None. VIOLENCE: Shootings and a beating with some blood. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Pills and frequent tobacco. ACTION: One big shootout and an explosion. COMEDY: None.
Roger EbertFull Review Average ...weirdly sluggish and dull... ...works hard to make you feel as if you're watching a movie that was actually made in the ‘70s, including scattered news reports and archival footage from the era. But it doesn't quite hit its target in providing an emotional resonance or political relevance for today.
Slant MagazineFull Review Below Average ...a painfully leaden attempt to "hear both sides” of the war between Israel and Palestine vis-a-vis the 1976 hijacking of Air France Flight 139. Throughout the film, nearly every exchange of dialogue sounds like sparring blocks of Wikipedia-like information.
