"It was June 1976 that an Air France plane carrying 244 passengers and a crew of 12 on a flight from Athens to Paris was hijacked by terrorists who forced the captain to alter course and eventually land at Uganda's Entebbe Airport. With the tacit approval of president Idi Amin, the passengers were held hostage and threatened with death if the Israeli government didn't comply with their captor's demand to release 53 Palestinian so-called freedom fighters held in Israeli prisons"--Container.

Digitally remastered? Really? How comes it looked worse than playing the movie hooked up to an analog console TV with its CRT on the blink? Besides the shockingly poor video, no captions or subtitles to help with the mono audio. Seems to me that the DVD producers did not put any work to improve the master before its digital transfer. Regardless, it was still a good action docudrama based on an unforgettable true international event. 2 stars overall: 4 stars for content etc but ½ star for video quality no better than pirated DVDs in 144p.
