I was in too kinds about that fillum. The raid was carried pit by the Sayeret Makyal, and in the film they were made to look a bit slap dash and amateurish, when in real life they make the SAS look a bit inexperienced.Entebbe
The latest movie version of events in 1976.
The dance sequence is universally lambasted and it is generally understood that in real life, no dancing was done by the assault team.
Weapons drills were pretty good and this is the only movie version showing Israeli commandos armed with (captured) AK47 which was their std weapon rather than the Uzi which was for girls. The final shootout was shown very briefly like they ran out of money or time during production.
Very sympathetic to the Red Army Faction/ Revolutionary Cells/ Tooting Popular Front.
The film suffers from a lack of Charles Bronson.
When I first saw that film I thought it was a bit dull, then half way through there I was suddenly much talk of a thermobaric bomb and I instantly found it more interesting.1995 film "Outbreak" w/ Dustin Hoffman. some very moving scenes like when infected ppl are escorted from their homes & when a barn filled with corpses is burned & blown up
um yeah, except they were talking about using it to annihilate an infected American town (which I think they did many years earlier w/ a similar outbreak in a jungle somewhere?) I only checked in w/ the movie, somewhere in the middleWhen I first saw that film I thought it was a bit dull, then half way through there I was suddenly much talk of a thermobaric bomb and I instantly found it more interesting.
Must watch this again some time. A proper funny SF/F film (compare with all the Marvel "humorous" scripts of recent years.)"Galaxy Quest" - the has-been cast of a Star Trek series eek out a living appearing at fan conventions, but get recruited by space aliens who think they are real heroic astronauts. Affectionately parodies Star Trek, a superb cast including Sigourney Weaver, and Alan Rickman who is particularly wonderful as the jaded British actor bemoaning the depths to which he's sunk "I've played Richard III !" he laments at one point. Nice details like the minor actor roped in to the space aliens' scheme who's terrified he's going to be killed because his character doesn't have a last name. Like many great comedies, it's played straight if that makes sense. I'd never watched it before as I'd wrongly dismissed it, but prompted by another favourable review on here, gave it a go.
Superbly done: 8/10 of pure entertainment,
