Time Out says

Black September terrorists attempt to wipe out a US football crowd by hijacking the TV blimp. Besides some good suspense sequences, Frankenheimer tries to utilise his well-known skill with actors to open up all sides of the issue. Unfortunately, all the major characters have a whiff of Hollywood artifice, largely because (as has happened too often before in his career) Frankenheimer gets carried away by their verbosity. But perhaps any Hollywood film giving the Palestinian case an airing deserves to be welcomed.
