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. With strong audio and video this is one you'll want to seek out in case you haven't heard about it. I'd recommend it to anyone.
Conclusion: If you're in the market for a taut, realistic thriller (and don't mind a film mostly spoken in Danish), A Hijacking 's portrayal of a cargo ship taken over by Somali pirates makes for a decent watch. Director Tobias Lindholm oversaw this tense drama in a quasi-documentary style similar to what Paul Greengrass did with United 93 , but dodgy choices and a flagging pace make this the inferior film of the two. .
