What’s Going On?
Special Agent Ross’s (Couture) plans to reconcile with his ex-fiancé are ruined when she boards a private jet that is targeted by hijackers working for the same crime lord he is chasing. With no time to inform his team, Ross wriggles his way aboard the aircraft and risks it all to save the love of his life. An adrenaline fueled action packed film that puts the fear back in flying!
Who’s In It:
Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Randy Couture(The Expendables, and the upcoming The Expendables 2), Dominic Purcell (Straw Dogs, “Prison Break”), Tiffany Dupont (“Greek”), Holt McCallany (Fight Club), Craig Fairbrass (The Bank Job) and Vinnie Jones (Snatch, Kill The Irishman) .
If You Like…:
Passenger 57, Air Force One, a little Executive Decision with the cheesy acting of Snakes on a Plane, HIJACKED could be the film you’ve been waiting for.
No extras, but it does come with a DVD of the film.
The Technical Gist:
Video codec: MPEG-4 AVC
Video resolution: 1080p
Aspect ratio: 1.78:1
Original aspect ratio: 1.85:1
While it may be kind of a mashup of all the films listed above, it doesn’t make it a good movie. Poorly acted, very little action, Dominic Purcell’s got a mustache for some reason. SKIP IT
