Boring chit chat hostage movie
12 June 2010
Warning: Spoilers
Three guys running from the police hide out in a bar and hold the handful of people inside hostage. One of the men is badly injured and they talk and talk and talk about what they are going to do then near the end you find out one of the hostages inside is actually a bigger outlaw than they are. Some get out and some don't. By the end of the film you will more than likely find you don't care about any of these boring characters.

I have seen this a few times and never have enjoyed it. It is so extremely slow that it's hard to set through. Kevin Spacey behind the camera offered nothing. The acting was good, but with such a boring movie it didn't matter. Faye Dunaway, M. Emmet Walsh, William Fitchner, John Spencer, Viggo Mortensen, Skeet Ulrich, Joe Mantegna and Gary Sinise all did good, Matt Dillon is a horrible actor and should not be in anything. The music was horrible and made this bad film even worse.

This movie is pure drama, 95 percent of the film is spent in the bar with the three idiot bad guys trying to figure out what to do next, it's a hard film to watch because it is so slow.2/10 stars
