Real to Real - Raid on Entebbe

Saw this movie on the History Channel, while also on the computer.

The dated look gave it a curious authenticity looking at backwards from 2006.

The most notable scenes were when the dialogue said "shoot in short bursts, make your shots count, and make sure the terroists don't kill the hostages". In response to the counter-terrorism troops that were training for the raid.

Another one was the Israelis yelling and arguing about whether to authorize the raid in the first place, even while the transport planes were already en route to the target in Uganda. "They are still debating when therei s a small army in the air enroute, well that's democracy for you".
