DVD's can be great, or garbage. Evidently there's a DVD of Raid on Entebbe that is garbage. But which?? Reviews were easier and more helpful when there was one DVD of one movie. But once again, now that there is a 2007 re-release of Raid on Entebbe, which reviews belong to which DVD? In particular, have the transfer problems that plague MANY DVDs been cleaned up in the new release? Somehow, Amazon has GOT to make sure that the reviews for one DVD are not attached to another. If you agree, please click this. Maybe if enough people ask for it, Amazon will clean up its act.

Format: DVD
I like the movie and was hoping the DVD would be a good purchase. Unfortunately the DVD is the worst quality DVD I have ever seen. It's not even DVD quality. Regular TV broadcasts coming through my DirecTV signal are much sharper than this low quality piece of junk. The picture quality is very dark. I have seen this movie on TV and the darkness of the picture is very noticable. Even worse is that the makers of the DVD cut out complete scenes of the movie! The one star rating is not for the movie itself, but for the extremely bad job done to make this DVD. It sucks! Don't buy it! Record the movie off of TV and then have someone record it onto a DVD for you. It will be much better

All I can say is that it is too bad this is how this excellent movie is treated. I highly recommend the movie and have been waiting a long time for it to be released as a DVD. However, the other reviewer is correct, they did a terrible job of recording this movie onto DVD. The quality is worse than a bad reception TV broadcast and scenes have been cut out! The quality of this DVD is as if someone recorded it on VHS from TV and then copied it onto DVDs in their garage! It is truly lousy work. Again, the movie is excellent and if it were to come out in a DVD format made from the original movie reels, with widescreen as an option, I would still buy a copy. Don't waste your money on this one. The VHS might be better, but you'd get just as much satisfaction if you recorded it off of TV!

Format: VHS Tape Verified Purchase
Even with some of the liscence given to a Hollywood production of a significant moment on history, this tale stays close to the facts of one of the most daring raids in Modern Times. This daring rescue of over 100 hostages with only 3 casualties amongst them and one casualty among the Israeli troops (Benjamin Netanyahu's brother, Jonathan) showed the world that terrorism could be defeated. All of the terrorist hijackers were killed as were many of the Ugandan Military.
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
If you have, like me, wasted money on this current commercial release you will understand why people are so angry about this dvd.I have many 'home recorded' films but always prefer to buy a commercial release dvd if there is one, this purchase has left me wondering why i did so on this occasion.I have attached a set of movie clips from my own personal recording (digital TV)you will see that it is far better than this current commercial release !!
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.

Format: VHS Tape
This movie was a good report of the actal raid that occured in 1976.An airline jet had been hijacked and commandered to Entebbe
Uganda.All of the Jewish passengers were held hostage by the
German terrorists.Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin put together a
daring raid to rescue the prisoners who were being held by the
terrorists.Under the dark of night the Israeli special forces
swept into Entebbe and pulled off a stunning rescue mission.The hostages were freed with only one Israeli casualty.The Israeli
citizens were flew home to safety.This was a corageous stand and
attack on terrorism.All of this occured on the 200th birthday
of America. An excellent movie.
