Nicely told story with gripping drama. However, one thing was not addressed: why wasn't naval forces questioned about helping out?

Tobias Lindholm's hostage-negotiation drama that wields its verité style for maximum tension. Full Review
Angie Errigo
A slow burner; intense, utterly engrossing and believable. Full Review
Connie Ogle

A Hijacking is not quite as exciting as it should be, but its realistic examination of grit and folly are still more intriguing than swaggering action movie heroics. Full Review
David Edelstein
New York Magazine (Vulture)
It’s an unshowy, quietly intense drama with grace notes in every scene — and a hellish punch. Full Review
Ella Taylor
A Hijacking is mostly about the excruciating process of getting to "yes" when language is the least of the barriers between two very different mindsets. Full Review
