7 Days in Entebbe

Airplane hijack thriller from RoboCop (2014) director Jose Padilha based on 1976 hijacking of an Air France flight from Tel Aviv to Paris. Stars Daniel Brühl and Rosamund Pike.

In 1976, four hijackers took a plane hostage and forced it to land in Entebbe, Uganda, while they demanded the release of dozens of Palestinian terrorists. The ticking-clock thriller follows the hijackers and hostages as well as the political leaders trying to decide whether to negotiate or send an elite special forces unit on a dramatic rescue mission to free the hostages.

"Surprise and speed is the key," someone comments at one point; the only surprise is how unspeedy and unsurprising this project turned out to be.

Although much of the film is effectively claustrophobic, it is too bogged down by exposition to fully take off.

Like the hijacking itself, you can't help feeling it was all for nothing.
