Seemingly actionless, yet riveting.,
This review is from: A Hijacking (Blu-ray)
Comparisons with Captain Phillips seem inevitable, since both deal with a hijacking at sea. However, this film takes a very different approach; it concentrates primarily on one crew member on the hijacked ship, and the whole negotiating team back on land - the hijacking itself is protracted over many months and one sees how the pressure gradually ratchets up on all involved.
Although Captain Phillips is based on a true story, this film actually felt more real.
