Goofs

Early in the movie there is a news report stating "a trove of arms from German military forces were discovered in Pakistan". While the reporter specifically says "German military" equipment it shows British SA80 rifles as the supposed German military equipment. Germans do not use the British SA80 rifle platform, instead using their own weapons manufactured in-country. See more »

Disappointing and a complete failure, what a Waste Of Time !!
26 January 2013 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

The main reason I watched this film was because Randy Couture is in it, he was in "The Expendables 1 and 2". To me, "Expendables 2" was the best action film of 2012. Well, "Hijacked" is possibly among the worst of 2012. Now granted, Couture only played a small role in The Expendables and here he is the leading star. He proves one thing: he can't act at all. We already kind of knew that from the flawed "Scorpion King" sequel. But he is not the only "star" of this film. We also have Vinnie Jones. His part is kind of limited since he's killed in the first 10 minutes. Then we have Dominic Purcell (Prison Break) with an awful "Magnum" mustache. His performance is also one he now desperately tries to forget. On with the story: predictable, lacks any form of tension or thrills. Does not make any sense most of the time.

When it comes to action you simply have to laugh when you see the limited fight scenes that are badly choreographed. So what's left ? Beats me, I just can't understand why cheap garbage like this is still produced. Avoid at all costs..
