Very well done! Not a typical suspense movie as advertised - it's basically two stories: #1 is the negotiations between the professionals at the company and the hijackers. #2 is the relationship between the ship's crew and the hijackers. Feels clinically made but also pumps adrenaline. Full of surprises too. Great flick.
