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).

" The Ups: Great leads in Samuel L. Jackson and Kevin Spacey and an excellent ensemble make you think the film is much more intelligent than it really is. The Downs: The ending disappoints heavily. A little on the long side. Would have been better for the film if we didn't see the heroic rescue of the hostage girl at the beginning making us sympatize heavily with Samuel L."

*SPOILER ALERT* (18 movies items)

"SPOILER:In 1998, pitching Samuel L. Jackson against Kevin Spacey was like Hollywood's equivalent of Ali vs Forman. It didn't need a trailer that clumsily revealed that the antagonists end up working together to defeat a common foe. I don't negotiate with spoiler terrorists!!! "

"Katsottu: 23.2.2014 HDFIN:istä Panttivankitilanteissa toimiva neuvottelija Danny Roman (Samuel L. Jackson) lavastetaan parinsa murhaajaksi, joten Roman ryhtyy itse kaappaajaksi. Roman vaatii paikalle Chris Sabianin (Kevin Spacey). Juonessa on pieniä käänteitä ja elokuva on välillä jännittäväkin. Samuel L. Jackson"

Film Diary - January 2014 (42 movies items)

"Director(s): F Gary Gray Cast: Samuel L Jackson, Kevin Spacey, David Morse et al Where: On TV When: 28th/29th January 2014 late-Tuesday evening Why?: It was on, I was up late Seen it before?: I think so, years ago though Project: None Thoughts: It was ok. My interest wandered occasionally but I was pottering about whilst it was on so may not be entirely the film's fault. Samuel L Jackson and Kevin Spacey play their roles well as you would expect. Watch again?: Maybe, not especially."

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

Why Aren't These Gems More Fondly Remembered? (15 movies items)

" I was blown away by this movie. Seriously. I'd seen it on the shelf at the video store for so long but didn't bother to pick it up, as I hadn't heard much about it. But eventually, I did rent it. I wasn't disappointed. My mind was blown and my expectations were exceeded. This is a great R-rated adult thriller. The on-screen pairing of Samuel L. Jackson and Kevin Spacey is a win all-round. The two light up the screen with their bantering. And it's a smart movie, full of great suspense. It's no"
