So much better than the American version! Human, real and without all the hype and Rambo fantasy that always is required in Hollywood culture.

For a hijacking movie, it is surprisingly slow, boring and very little action.

This entry in the catalog should not read "Kapringen". Very confusing.

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.
