An average movie

4 years, 5 months ago at Aug 25 12:00
Honestly, I wasn't expecting much from this movie and I thought it would be an average standard action flick but since I have a weak spot for Bruce Willis, I still wanted to check it out. Eventually, surprisingly, I have to admit it, it was not bad at all after all. This movie was directed by a rather obscure French director, Florent Emilio Siri, but I must say that he did a rather impressive job... read more

Hostage, a movie typical for Bruce Willis, a Die Hard movie star.

Eventually, surprisingly, I have to admit it, it was not bad at all after all. This movie was directed by a rather obscure French director, Florent Emilio Siri, but I must say that he did a rather impressive job since the whole thing looked very good and I enjoyed the mood as well. Of course, the story was nothing exceptional but I thought it was entertaining enough and there were enough cool action scenes to keep me interested. As usual, Bruce Willis did his thing, nothing less, nothing more, but I didn't mind as the guy will be forever charismatic and Ben Foster stole the show, once again. Foster must ” read more

"Wait a second. Bruce Willis plays a cop, who ends up in the middle of a hostage situation born out of a robbery attempt? And his family is in trouble, too? Oh, as an added bonus he used to be a hostage negotiator in Los Angeles? Have I seen this somewhere before?"

Miika's Movie Diary - 2010 (372 movies items)

"Watched 17.6 ---------- Potentiaaliahan tässä oli keskitasoa paremmaksi actionleffaksi vaikka miten paljon, mut lopputulos on vähän liian keskinkertainen. Kyllä tämän jaksaa kunnialla katsoa loppuun, ei siinä mitään, mutta homma tökkii kliseisiin. Jännitystäkään tää ei tarjoa juuri missään vaiheessa, ja pahikset eivät enää alun jälkeen tunnukaan niin mulkuilta tai hulluilta kuin olisin toivonut. Willis kuitenkin vetää vanhalla rutiinilla, eikä hahmo tunnut edes kovin ty"

"Viihdyttävä, mutta aivan pirun kliseinen. Elokuvalla ei ole ainuttakaan omaa ideaa, mutta kyllä tämä silti jaksaa ihan mainiosti viihdyttää. Myös meininki on aiheesseen sopivan karua."
