Movie Reviews

A very good film
Mr. P. Burt | plymouth devon UK | 08/09/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"If you're looking for a action thriller that will keep your a** on the edge of your seat then check Hostage out.

The film starts with a hostage situation that goes very wrong, devastated by the failed hostage situation Jeff Talley played by Bruce Willis transfers himself to no profile job as chief of police in a small town soon later 3 delinquent teenagers who follow a family home so they can steel their car but it gets out of hand and turns into a hostage situation but there's more to it than they all know.

Hostage is a suspenceful action film with plenty of good moments in the film, think of this film as Die Hard meets Panic Room, the cast do a damn good job a special mention should go to Ben Foster who plays a very convinceing nutter you'll see what I mean when you watch it.

I highly reconmend this film to anyone who's looking for a action thriller that will keep you on edge."
So much for honor among thieves

"At first glance this looks like Bruce's typical action movie, following his tried and true formula. And, actually, the fact of the matter is "Hostage" is very similar to at least half a dozen other movies that Bruce made. But nevertheless, it's an excellent movie. I enjoyed it because it was so fast-moving and even though I sort of had a feeling what was going to happen I still felt very shocked and surprised. I don't want to give too much away, but there were some great effects. As always, Bruce was exceptional. After watching this movie, I really think the man must have been a cop in a prior life because he had this role down pat. And the movie is not so much a story of just a hostage situation as it is more of a story of good verses evil. The movie really pushes the envelope while asking the viewers to examine the situation and question the entire realm of what evil truly is. I enjoyed this movie tremendously and cannot recommend it enough."
