North Sea Hijack (1979) is released on DVD in Sweden from Studio S Entertainment.

"I prefer this film before all my Bond blockbusters!", Roger Moore said about this explosive thriller by the director of The Wild Geese (1978) and the producer of Where Eagles Dare (1968).

The location is North Sea, where the world's largest oil rig is hijacked by a terrorist force. The ransom is 25 million pounds, or else, the ocean will be turned into a bloody inferno.

The British Empire is shaken. Rufus Ffolkes, an eccentric billionaire with his own private army, is quickly hired. Hundreds of lives and an environmental disaster is at stake when the clock is ticking down towards the crucial seconds...
