An act of terrorism leads to one of the most daring rescue missions ever attempted. When a commercial flight is hijacked in 1976 and diverted to an abandoned terminal at Entebbe Airport in Uganda, the terrified passengers become bargaining chips in a deadly political standoff. As the likelihood of finding a diplomatic solution fades, an elite group of commandos hatch a fearless plot to rescue the hostages before time runs out. Daniel Brühl (Captain America Civil War), Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) and Eddie Marsan (Atomic Blonde) star in this riveting thriller inspired by true events.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: 7 Days in Entebbe has a worthy story to tell, but loses sight of its most compelling elements in a dull dramatization of riveting real-life events.

Violent but dry telling of real-life 1976 plane hijacking.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that 7 Days in Entebbe is based on the true story of a 1976 plane hijacking from Israel by Palestinian and German terrorists (aka "freedom fighters") and the ensuing rescue attempt. It has fairly strong violence, including guns and shooting, threats made with guns, hitting/punching, bloody wounds, and discussions of death. Language isn't frequent but includes a use of "f--k" and a use of the German version of "s--t" ("Scheisse"). Characters drink socially and smoke frequently (accurate for the period), and one character takes several "wake up" pills, with no real consequences. While the movie tries to be factual and detailed, it doesn't do a particularly good job getting its messages across, and it can be quite dry and dull. Teens or adults interested in the facts behind the story are encouraged to seek additional resources.
