  • Somali pirates seize a Danish freighter in the Indian Ocean, demanding millions in ransom as the stubborn CEO of the shipping company tries in vain to negotiate a deal in this tense and topical thriller. As the heavily armed pirates surround the MV Rozen, frightened cook Mikkel (Pilou Asbk) and engineer Jan (Roland Mller) realize that any false move could be their last. Meanwhile, miles away, shipping-company head Peter Ludvigsen (Sren Malling) receives word of the volatile situation and attempts to take control of negotiations. As days drag on into weeks, however, it gradually becomes apparent that Ludvigsen is in over his head. With the lives of the terrified crew hanging in the balance, that lack of a clear resolution finds the situation aboard the MV Rozen turning volatile as Ludvigsen tries to stand his ground and the pirates grow increasingly agitated.

  • Critic Reviews
    4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] ruthlessly plausible thriller, stripped clean of music and melodrama, and all the more engrossing for it."
    Total Film

    4 stars out of 5 -- "A slow burner; intense, utterly engrossing and believable."

    "A HIJACKING is as lean, focused and to the point as its title....This expertly done, ultra-tense Danish thriller places you in the middle of the action in the most intense way."
    Los Angeles Times

    "[T]he film is at once a probing psychological case study and a rippedfrom-the-headlines exploration of modern sea piracy."
    New York Times
