A Hijacking

 (2012)

A Hijacking Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Danish thriller in which the crew of a cargo ship is held hostage by Somali pirates. After hijacking the ship, the pirates demand a ransom be paid by the firm who owns the freighter. The head of the company enters into negotiations with them while seeking advice about how best to handle the situation, but when the ransom isn't met things becomes increasingly dangerous for those on board the vessel.

For more about A Hijacking and the A Hijacking Blu-ray release, see A Hijacking Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Johan Philip Asbæk, Søren Malling, Dar Salim
Director: Tobias Lindholm

A Hijacking Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

A Hijacking was shot with the Arri Alexa by Magnus Nordenhof Jønck, who is also Lindholm's cinematographer on his hit TV show Borgen. The film was finished on a digital intermediate, which was presumably the source for Magnolia Home Entertainment's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray. Lindholm and Jønck have obviously opted for a documentary look here, with a dull though not overtly desaturated palette that hasn't been prettified in post-production. Detail is generally quite good, though not so much so that scenes appear to have been deliberately lit for the camera. To the extent that the image is occasionally overly bright or dark and underexposed, these issues appear to be source-based and not the fault of the Blu-ray.

Unlike the U.K. edition released earlier this year by Arrow, Magnolia's Blu- ray has been mastered on a BD-50 with additional language options, and Magnolia has taken advantage of the extra space to provide an unusually high average bitrate of 36.00 Mbps. Although the digital source is undoubtedly the same, Magnolia's disc is the one to get, simply for the better compression ratio (assuming, of course, that one has the hardware to play region A discs).


A Hijacking Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Because A Hijacking is primarily a dialogue-driven drama, the focus of the Blu-ray's lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1 remains in front, where conversations take place. Nevertheless, the surround array provides a clear distinction between the environments of the film's two main locales. The sea, as heard on deck and from different parts of the MV Rozen, is an ever-present complement to the action aboard ship, while the situation room in Denmark is its own private world, punctuated by telephones, mobile devices, note-taking and hushed voices. The mix is subtle but effective in conveying the tension at both ends of the standoff.

The disc defaults to English subtitles that are limited to translating the Danish dialogue. If any of the foreign speakers' accents in English are a problem for the viewer, English SDH subtitles for the entire movie are available as an alternative.
