Top-notch action-thriller!

"You think killing a man gives you the right to negotiate with me?"

The Negotiator is of a rare breed - an action-thriller relying on suspense generated by lots of dialogue, several superb plot twists and a selection of brilliant, dominant performances rather than a surplus of explosive, over-the-top action sequences. This first-rate white-knuckle thriller is virtually a non-stop ve... read more

When police negotiator, Danny Roman, is framed for murder and corruption, he decides to take matters into his own hands by taking hostages in an attempt to find the real dirty cops.

I haven't seen this film in ages and I was surprised by how good it is. My kudos to the writers, director and actors for taking a familiar plot and making it unique.

Can any movie with Kevin Spacey and Samuel L. Jackson be thoroughly bad? Well, the movie wasn't actually even that bad, and the story led the movie nicely forward (okay, it was kinda lousy plot).

An average movie

“Since this movie has actually a pretty good reputation, I might re-watch it at some point. I mean, many people seems to think that it is one hell of a movie but, to be honest, I wasn't really blown away by the whole thing. I think I understand why it is so much loved though. Basically, you have here two of the best actors at that time, Samuel L. Jackson and Kevin Spacey, with some interesting characters and they both gave some really solid performances. So, I get it, the whole thing is a huge showdown with those two powerhouses but, still, I thought it was fairly entertaining but not much more than that, I’m afraid. I mean, come on, the plot was just really preposterous and therefore, I really had a hard time to care about what was going on. I mean, this movie is a very good example why ” read more

Good Films Stuck at 7 Point Something..... (26 movies items)

" It's a perfect example of a very good film being let down by an equally lame and uninspiring ending. The film started with a bang and then Kevin spacey and Samuel L Jackson was just too good with their dual. But the mystery thriller lacked the shock value and in the end we get something much lesser than the sum of it's part. However despite it's flaw I just loved it. The acting was awesome story was decent enough to hold you for a rough 2 hour and the pace is apt for the genre it caters to."

"Katsottu: 1.4.2012 Samppaa vituttaa, kun joku lavastaa hänet syylliseksi korruptioon. Onneksi Samppa on tiukka neuvottelija, joka osaa hoitaa panttivankitilanteet. Kevin tulee antamaan vinkkejä Sampalle. Lopuksi puhutaan vähän länkkäreistä, ja sillähän se homma hoituu."

"28.03. TV, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY F. Gary Gray A pretty entertaining, enjoyable enough hostage situation film with a good cast. Samuel L. Jackson, Kevin Spacey and David Morse all doing quite fine performances. Pretty confusing and naturally clichéd at times but what the hell, it's got a bellowing Samuel L. Jackson. "
