  • An effectively glossy thriller.

    February 21, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Gigineishvili strikes a careful balance between nerve-jangling action yarn and forensic procedural, even if this methodically non-judgmental approach sometimes risks slipping into aloof detachment.

    February 15, 2017 | Full Review…
  • A taut, meticulously-researched account of the events and their aftermath.

    February 12, 2017 | Full Review…
  • This hijacking thriller first establishes the social-historical backdrop with elegance and the characters' not-so-obvious motivation with confidence, before topping it all off with one of the most remarkable action set-pieces in recent European cinema.

    September 3, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Unfortunately, all the great work involved feels a bit lost in the end as the film comes off too calm, too slow, and perhaps a bit sleep inducing.

    April 12, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Combines arthouse sensitivities, historical gravitas and good ol' action setpieces to highly satisfying results.

Audience Reviews for Hostages

    Sometimes true and cautionary tales have deadly consequences, or so that's what Rezo Gigineishvili's film based on such true events about a group of young people from Georgia wanting to leave the Soviet Union portrays. The film captures the genuine authenticity of early 80s period sense along with a talented cast that makes these characters stand out it's almost hard to believe they're based on real people. Most of the time however, I found the film meandering when building up it's drama before anything else within the plot escalated. Nonetheless, this is a film that lives up to being based on true events I never would have known about and as shocking as the impacts are within the film's most thrilling sequences so is the overall subject matter at hand. By the end viewers will be conflicted as well as compelled and challenged when looking back as such devastating communist times.
