Randy Couture is taking time off being expendable to become a little not expendable in a new actioner called “Hijacked” for director Brandon Nutt (“The Last Resort”). The film promises to be along the lines of past plane-themed actioners like “Delta Force” and “Executive Decision”, minus Chuck Norris and Steven Seagal dying in Act One and pissing off all the Seagal fans who had no idea that was going to happen heading into the movie. But back to “Hijacked”. No trailer yet, but you can check out the DVD/Blu-ray box art and some stills from the movie below.
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!
The film stars former UFC Heavyweight Champion Randy Couture, and co-stars “Prison Break’s” Dominic Purcell, sporting a wicked ‘stache, along with Tiffany Dupont, Holt McCallany, Craig Fairbrass and all-purpose English bad guy Vinnie Jones, though ol Vinnie might not be a bad guy in this one. That would be a first.
“Hijacked” arrives on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD on July 31st courtesy of Anchor Bay Entertainment.
