Entebbe, Rosamund Pike, Bridget Kuhlman discussed on Upstate Live with Joey Hudson


And basically i think that this is a far more engaging version of the lara croft story than you had before rated pg thirteen three stars because of what it is not because it's a great movie three stars because it's a successful lara croft movie it seems to me the most successful so far meanwhile another film that you've seen versions of before is called seven days entebbe and this is the latest film version i think it's the fifth of the most famous antiterrorist operation ever is july fourth nineteen seventy six the two hundred anniversary of the declaration of independence and israeli commandos are trying to rescue over two hundred hostages who have been taken by palestinian terrorists led by two german terrace played here by rosamund pike oscar nominee and daniel brooke two hundred thirty nine hostages at entebbe three hours israel stories history we have to act could be no negotiations with terrorists you wanna take control of the airport going to have to use a much bigger force but it's impossible to move a force of this is four thousand kilometers undetected we catch a sitter to nothing whatever happens we did the right thing okay they don't do the right thing in this movie and they don't do the right thing because look i i know something about the real raid on entebbe and there are very very few cases where it's so clear cut good versus evil you had four terrorists who were monsters and they were not sympathetic as they are portrayed in this film version and the entire operation here the entire film has been hijacked itself by political correctness yes and moral equivalency they're not to signs on this there is no way you can justify these terraces freedom fighters the two german radicals for instance one of her the one played by rosamund pike was actually named bridget kuhlman and just to give you an example of the difference in the film she is shown as a little bit hesitant and regretful and she's very sensitive and she's taking too many pills and she's an idealist in in real life she pistolwhipped innocent hostages which you never see in the film and and.
