Decently exciting popcorn thriller series with a few instances of sincerely interesting ethical questions.

Intense and fun, time flew by with each episode. It did seem a tad unrealistic at times, but it didn't matter.

Starts out strong enough, like a somewhat more mature and realistic 24, but along the way the contrivances, plotholes and overall flimsy logic starts to pile up as the more cliched genre tropes creep in, culminating in a resolution straight out of a 90s action movie starring some generic action hero. It's a shame because always watchable Elba is commanding in the lead, and his (initial) wits over violence approach to dealing with the hijackers is much more interesting.

Idris Elba takes command of the screen in this tense thriller. Despite him having unwavering star power you genuinely felt that the outcome was unpredictable. The tension helps elevate the show even if this is a recycled plot line we have seen before. Elba's character at times does do the impossible but it keeps the plot moving at an acclerated pace.

Hijack doesn't exactly break any new ground, but it's effective and has some great character moments, bolstered by strong acting. Occasionally, the series does venture into the ridiculous territory with some convenient plotholes glossed over, but when it focuses on the different backstories and personalities of the passengers in peril, it is at its best. The real-time pacing of the show also adds to the tension and I felt was handled perfectly, especially bouncing between different locations.
