#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Based on a true story, a SWAT team is tasked with storming a hijacked Air France plane to save its passengers.
Plot: Saturday 24th December 1994. Four GIA terrorists hijack an Air France A300 Airbus at the Algiers airport. The Airbus, bound for Paris, has 227 passengers on board. No one knows exactly what the terrorists’ intentions are, just that they are armed and extremely determined. They demand the liberation of their “brothers in arms” and want the aircraft to take off at once. After very lengthy and intense negotiations between the French and Algerian governments, the plane is finally allowed to leave. There are three main characters at the heart of the action: a member of the GIGN, Carole Jeanton, an ambitious technocrat willing to do anything it takes to achieve personal gain from the events, and Yahia Abdallah, a determined jihadist who grew up in the slums of Algiers and was being manipulated by an obscure GIA envoy, Ali Touchent.

Brilliant film ruined by dubbing
I’m not going to add the reviews others here have posted as they cover all the bases much better than I could.
I watched this film because my son is/was mad about the GIGN. I went to the trouble of kitting him out for Halloween only for 95% of the people who saw him ask if he was SWAT. I’ve done a considerable amount of research into GIGN and was fortunate to get a GIGN poster signed to my son by a ex member.
The costumes and equipment used for the film was very well done, especially the use of revolvers over semi auto pistols.
What I will say is that I thought it was a brilliant movie ruined by being dubbed in English. If the dubbed version was done by French voice actors in English it would have been fine but the American accents got on my nerves after about 5 minutes. I would much rather have had subtitles and try to follow along with my rusty French.
Great Mix of Action & Drama
As much as I hate to discuss technical or format details, do not watch this with dubbing. The dubbing is so bad that it’s a different movie in many ways.
For anyone who thinks something is unlikely, this happened. And this is about as historically accurate as a theatrically-released movie is going to get. I am not sure about the political parts, but it seems to be based on the reports of the terrorist actions and the assault. Footage shown on TVs during the movie is real.
I thought all in all it was very well done (no evidence of low-budget, so no idea what those reviewer’s complaints are) combination of action and drama. It’s got a rather good pace, with something happening every few minutes. Sometimes it’s just political drama, sometimes it’s spycraft like stuff, sometimes its preparing for or executing the assault.
8 of 10 for a slightly too-weepy wife. Realistic support system, going to hang out with the other GIGN members, and wives, but I’d like more explanation why she is so incapable of handling what her husband does for a living.
