José Padilha directs Rosamund Pike, Daniel Brühl and Eddie Marsan in this dramatic recreation of the hijack, hostage situation and rescue mission that happened in 1976.
Entebbe is hamstrung slightly by the fact it is a dedicated recreation of a true story that involves six days of waiting about in a derelict airport terminal and an action sequence that lasted all of three minutes in reality. But it is a fascinating, ethically complex moment in recent international history. And Brühl and Pike (always watchable leads) make for sexy, sexy freedom fighters. “I want throw bombs into the consciousness of the masses!” My manhole is wet. Buttons popping from brown beige blouses as the plane is taken. PHWOAR! Day of the Jackal for horny Guardian readers.
