This raid inspired other daring counterattacks against terrrorism. Less than year later Dutch commandos stormed a train and a school and rescued 160 hostages from terrorists. A few months later German forces liberated 86 hostages aboard a German Airliner that had been hijacked by Iranian terrorists.
An amazing story done justice by a gripping film.
This film should be rereleased on DVD as well as VHS.
|Length: 1:43 Mins|
Raid On Entebbe is a superb Film ! that goes without saying. Having decided to obtain a 'commercial release' of Raid On Entebbe I was totally disgusted with the quality of the Region 1 (ntsc) issue that i ordered from a company based in the USA. I author and produce DVDs as a small concern and sell to collectors on ebay and ioffer etc and could not believe that a large company could issue a DVD produced to the low standard that the DVD was that i received. The picture is dark and grainy, the quality is so poor the film is totally ruined, and thats apart from losing several minutes from the original film ! The DVD case has what i would describe as low grade artwork, i can live with that if the film itself is good quality but neither the film or artwork are good.I ordered a second DVD from another supplier as the cover design was different and expected a better copy but to no avail, that was rubbish also. I have an excellent quality print of Raid On Entebbe which i obtained some time ago,a home TV broadcast digital recording, the print i have is sharp and the colours true. I in fact took screen stills from both my print and the commercial issue and compared the same pictures side by side,and could not believe the difference i was seing, not only that but the sound quality was much lower on the 'official' release.Read more ›
