Editorial Reviews

UFC legend and THE EXPENDABLES star Randy Couture is Paul Ross, a tough-as-nails government agent on the trail of the international crime syndicate known as 'The Tribe'. But when 'The Tribe' hijacks the private luxury jumbo jet belonging to the world's richest industrialist, they demand $2.73 billion or will begin killing passengers. Among their hostages are the tycoon's new assistant (Tiffany Dupont of "Greek") and her ex-fiance Ross. The 'fasten seatbelt' signs are off...and one very pissed-off agent is now free to move about the cabin. Dominic Purcell ("Prison Break"), Holt McCallany ("Lights Out"), Gina Phiiips (JEEPERS CREEPERS), Craig Fairbrass (CLIFFHANGER) and Vinnie Jones (SNATCH, X-MEN: THE LAST STAND) co-star in this explosive thriller that takes action to whole new heights.

By K. Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on July 20, 2012
Format: Blu-ray
As a straight-to-DVD action picture, my expectations were fairly grounded for the high-flying adventure "Hijacked." Meant as a vehicle for UFC Heavyweight Champion Randy Couture, he channels his best Jason Statham and comes off as a serviceable action hero. If you are approaching "Hijacked" for him alone, this might be worth a look (but I'd still be hard pressed to recommend a buy). If, however, you are looking for non-stop action, suspense, and a plot that makes sense--there is less that I can say. This is an action picture that assembles the requisite cast of good guys and bad guys on a luxury airliner and allows a battle of wills to play out. Unfortunately, though, every major plot point revolves around seemingly random choices involving both the terrorists and the hostages. At one point, Couture takes out one of the three bad guys and leaves him unconscious and unsecured to rejoin the fight later on. Another time he leaves his gun sitting in front of an unsecured villain. From the bad guys, they don't make much sense either. Although their plot is to extort money--they instantly kill two of the richest passengers on the plane. But others, like a flight attendant, they allow to live and escape several times.

I'm not sure that the plot really matters with "Hijacked." It's really just a red herring that has little to do with how the movie unfolds. A spiffy introduction speaks about an international organization called The Tribe, but it's all so over-the-top as to not have much impact. Next we meet Couture in a cursory mission, a job gone bad. But before he has time to breathe, he joins his ex-fiancee on this luxury flight as she has just been hired by a wealthy (but suspicious) Vinnie Jones. I love Jones, I must admit, but he has little to do here.

As others have posted, this is low-rate action film. I too just checked it out due to Randy. I thought he did okay in The Expendables (he did take out Steve Austin), and wanted to see him in a solo action film. To be honest this movie was just about what I expected. Not a great movie, but a low budget action flick. Randy did not do any worse than say Chuck Norris did in his first couple of films. But do not expect much more. I agree with another poster about some of the dumb things Randy's character did in the movie and at one point thought to myself: Who writes these things? Leaving weapons around and not keeping an eye on a stone killer. Rookies! My other gripe was this movie did not have subtitles. That should have been a sign that is a low budget flick. I like to have subtitles on so I can read what people are saying. With the A/C on it sometimes gets difficult to hear what the characters are talking about and if I leave the volume up, I pay the price when the action gets going. Still, this was a Netflix rental, so it was a learning experience for me.

By Jim Clark, publisher, Lee County Courier, Tupelo, Mississippi

Randy Couture has decided to follow in the footsteps of fellow wrestlers John Cena and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, and have a second career - acting to fall back on.
The retired American mixed martial artist, collegiate and Greco-Roman wrestler does a decent job in the direct to DVD release, Hijacked. This wasn't his first film, he also had parts in Redbelt, The Scorpion King 2: Rise of a Warrior and The Expendables.
In Hijacked, Paul Ross (Randy Couture) is a U.S. government agent working to bring down The Tribe (a global terrorist syndicate).
The Tribe's next target is billionaire industrialist, Bruce Lieb, who is aboard his own private jet headed to his next power meeting. Also aboard the plane are Paul's ex-girlfriend, who is in public relations and members of The Tribe.
The movie dragged a little at the start, before getting to the hijacking. But once it got started it was as entertaining as The Rock's Walking Tall or Cena's The Marine.
Hey, this is a low budget action film but it's watchable. There are lots of fights, a bomb, not enough parachutes and all the standard fare.
Even though Randy is not the lead character, as in Hijacked, he's pumped about the follow-up to The Expendables, and working with Sylvester Stallone again.
"It was remarkable; I had no idea how Sly was still standing after all of that, but I found him to be very refreshing. He wasn't caught up with the words on the page; things changed on the fly -- he rewrote stuff right there on the set a lot of the time, changing around the lines for characters to make it fit better, feel better, and he was very, very in tune with helping the actors get across what he wanted to get across," Randy said.

The film opens with newsreels about a vast international terrorist group called "The Tribe" and news about billionaire Bruce Lieb (Craig Fairbrass). After an episode at a party and a shoot out to introduce the characters, we discover there is a plan involving Bruce Lieb and the terrorist group and it is taking place on his flight tonight!

CIA agent Paul Ross (Randy Couture) due to cutbacks, does some freelance work and warns Bruce Lieb. When he discovers his ex-fiancee (Tiffany Dupont) is on board the plane, Paul boards it. At this point it becomes good guys vs. bad guys in a straight forward Seagal type film. During the conflict there are things which appeal to be bad plot continuity points. However unlike a Seagall film these were actually clues for the final twist explained at the end. The film, which was cliche, now becomes clever and leads into a squeal.

The plane effect looked fake, either CG generated or a model on a string. How I long for the days of stock footage. Randy is a dull actor in the Statham/Seagall mode. The film needed some humor relief as the dialouge was a bit dry. You really didn't know the film was clever until the end as it lulled you into a sense that this is a poorly written action film. This could have been an enjoyable movie with some tweaking. If you like the Seagal type film, this one can be no worse.

PARENTAL GUIDE: F-bomb, mile high sex, nudity (Marla Malcolm).
