Stefan N (gb) wrote: In the era of film where Spielberg was introduced in cinemas, Hollywood was glorious, powerful, and intimidating. A couple decades have past since, and with poor films like Captain Phillips, Northern European cinema seems to be formulating the best balance of spectacular entertainment and emotional resonance. A Hijacking centers around the negotiation process between a company and Somali pirates who have hijacked one of the company's ships. The CEO named Peter Ludvigsen is the negotiator representing his company. We are first introduced to his skills when he greedily bargains with Japanese businessmen and wins. Little does he know that he will have to use these skills, that involve gambling millions of dollars, on seven lives. Mikkel Hartmann is the cook on the ship, and the pirates take a certain liking to him as he is the most vulnerable. The portrayal of the Somali pirates in this film only vividly highlights the xenophobia of Paul Greengrass. They are not flat characters; they are regular businessmen who are pursuing a venture. They are merely like animals scavenging for the money that the Westerners have hidden from them. At times, they are remorseless, and at other times, understanding. By the end of the film, Mikkel is left forever scarred by his experience which was incited by large corporations. This wonderful screenplay is of course attributed to the master, Tobias Lindholm, who worked on The Hunt, another Danish gem. Ultimately, A Hijacking is a captivating piece of film-making.

James C (es) wrote: Jean Harlow stars with Spencer Tracy in this tale of a tough cannery girl and the stubborn, egotistical fisherman she loves. Featuring an early (an annoying) performance by Mickey Rooney, worth seeing for the sparks that fly off the two leads and they fight and love and face tough times.

Carlos M (de) wrote: Some of the dialogue may be a bit repetitious, but Bigelow's direction is very effective and she knows how to maintain a constant level of nerve-racking tension in this descriptive (and essentially objective) account of a historical operation whose end is already known.
