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).

Miika's Movie Diary 2021 (88 movies items)

"9.3. rewatch Kevin Spaceyn ja Samuel L. Jacksonin panttivankielokuvassa on kiitettävä kohkaaminen kokoajan käynnissä, joten tylsää ei tule. Aikansa toimintaelokuviin nähden suuritunteisuus on läsnä, mikä on suurimman osan ajasta iso plussa."

A Complete Review of F. Gary Gray's work (10 movies items)

" Cast : Samuel L. Jackson, Kevin Spacey, David Morse, Paul Giamatti What was it about? In a desperate attempt to prove his innocence, a skilled police negotiator accused of corruption and murder takes hostages in a government office to gain the time he needs to find the truth. My two cents: 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 "
