A Hijacking is a Danish 2012 drama / thriller movie presented on DVD.
Never give in…
The Danish cargo ship MV Rozen is heading for harbour when it is hijacked by Somali pirates in the Indian Ocean. Amongst the men on board are the ship’s cook, Mikkel (Pilou Asbæk, BORGEN) and the engineer, Jan (Roland Møller), who, along with the rest of the crew, are taken hostage in a cynical game of life and death. With a ransom demand in the millions of dollars, a psychological chess game unfolds between the CEO of the shipping company (Søren Malling, THE KILLING) and the Somali pirates.
Directed by Tobias Lindholm, celebrated co-writer of THE HUNT and BORGEN, A HIJACKING is an edge-of-your-seat drama based on a host of true stories.
A Hijacking Movie Reviews
“Hostage thrillers are all-too-often shrill affairs, with clock-watching screenwriters wringing maximum melodrama from spiraling disorder. Not so Tobias Lindholm’s superb A Hijacking, which actually grows more chillingly subdued as its nightmare scenario unfolds.” Variety
“A Hijacking is Lindholm’s second feature as director; he’s also worked with such austere Danes as Thomas Vinterberg of Dogme 95 fame. What he’s learned, it seems, is how to strip away distractions, and let character become suspense, as well as destiny.” New York Post
“The film isn’t a white knuckle ride, and the pacing can be slow at times, but this is one of those cases where that’s sort of the point, and you certainly don’t begrudge it. A Hijacking is an absorbing, highly moving film.” The Playlist
“Director Lindholm is a graduate of the Dogma school, and he is able to maintain tension with a documentary camera technique, virtually no music and minimal on-screen theatrics.” St. Louis Post-Dispatch
“It’s an unshowy, quietly intense drama with grace notes in every scene — and a hellish punch.” New York Magazine
