Summary: You might recognise an actor or two from The Killing and more recently The Bridge, those nordic dramas that have made it to the BBC. This film has that nordic feel too, with some solid acting and a genuine attempt to make it as "realistic" as possible.
Summary: A very well-acted film, thanks to its two leads. It avoids any action movie cliches, in favor of the drama and thriller of the negotiation process, and the toll it takes on everybody involved.
Summary: "A Hijacking" features excellent performances from two protagonists, delivered in an unflinching fashion that lays out the scenario, and simply allows the raw emotions to transpire on their own.
Summary: A Danish movie which is not an action movie as it's name might suggest but rather a suspense movie. A cargo ship is taken over by Somali pirates in the Indian Ocean. Ransom negotiations between the pirates and the company owner are the focus of the movie. Acting of two leads is superb.
Summary: Another Danish success which for the most part is directed with spare economy (we don't even get to see a big battle as the hijackers take over the ship). The film is generally absorbing although not edge of the seat stuff.
