it's one of those movies where they talk but the words do not match there lips. I couldn't watch it just because of it. One of my biggest pet-peeves.

In the movie, the French government was portrayed as weak. To let 3 persons to be killed and then allow the hijacked plane to take off were acts of weakness. The assault on the hijackers was unimaginative and dumb.

It was an okay movie. I recall some of it from the news a long time ago. The fact that it's based on a true story makes it more interesting. Moviemaker probably stuck to the facts for the most part. Otherwise, it's hard to explain the disjointed character development, back story, or the unexciting action sequences.
