A Hijacking

High-Def Digest
2 January 2014
  • Conclusion: 'A Hijacking' was a movie that caught me totally by surprise. It felt real. The characters were real. Their situation was real. It's a poignant and thrilling tale about how people are forced into uncomfortable situations. Impossible situations. And how they fight back.

  • Summary: Every year there is a foreign film that emerges from the pack and stands out as that one must-see film. A Hijacking is that film.  This and Captain Phillips are meant to be played together as a double feature; normally when two films come along either both are terrible or only one manages to be OK.

A Hijacking (2012)

  • Conclusion: Lindholm's account of how a contemporary piracy situation was resolved is far less emotionally satisfying than Captain Phillips , and which is how it should be, because A Hijacking is also more realistic. As Lindholm notes in the extras, there are many people still being held hostage today.

  • Conclusion: Inspired by true events, Tobias Lindholm's A Hijacking should appeal to viewers who appreciate realistic thrillers. Arrow Films' technical presentation of this recent Danish film is very good. The Region-Free Blu-ray release also comes with a few short but very informative supplemental features.

Review: ‘A Hijacking’

Variety
3 September 2012
  • Summary: Though not the high-octane genre piece suggested by the premise, "Hijacking" should find itself sailing far friendlier international waters after a healthy festival run.
