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).

"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"

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. "
