    Willis delivers a great performance in this action thriller. He plays a retired hostage negotiator who becomes a small town sheriff after he fails to rescue a child who is held hostage. Kevin Pollak and Ben Foster also add refined roles to the movie. Hostage is crackling thriller with twists around every corner. Full Review »

    This is such a great action packed movie with a great deal of suspense, good acting, and an overall decent plot. Pay no attention to the horrible review that the good for nothing critics gave this movie. Full Review »
