Every Second Counts.
Devastated by a tragedy while on the job as a hostage negotiator for the lapd, jeff talley resigns and accepts a low-profile job as chief of police in the sleepy town of bristo camino. On a slow monday morning talley's job becomes anything but quiet and sets him on a course that could change his life forever.
Editor's Note
This well-made thriller harkens back to the gritty crime films of the 1970s. Bruce Willis plays Jeff Talley, a traumatized ex-LAPD hostage negotiator whose new career as small town sheriff doesn't turn out to be as restful as he had hoped; a hostage situation breaks out on "low crime Tuesday" and he is thrown right back into the business he knows all too well. Some punk kids have shot a cop and are holed up in a local mansion inhabited by crooked accountant Walter Smith (Kevin Pollak), his two kids, and a lot of surveillance cameras. Walter's young son (Jimmy Bennett) escapes his bonds and reports to Talley from the air shafts via his sister's cell phone. The sister--a Goth teen played by Michelle Horn--draws the romantic attention of Mars (Ben Foster), the pot-addled sociopath in the gang, thus adding a unique twist to the damsel-in-distress factor. Meanwhile, amid the buzzing helicopters and mobilizing S.W.A.T. teams, another group of bad guys has kidnapped Talley's wife and daughter, in order to force him to retrieve a secret disc in Walter's study. Florent Siri's efficient direction keeps the action flowing in unexpected directions while allowing for plenty of interesting procedural details and sly bits of humor. The score is ominous and the performances are strong, with Foster memorably creepy and Willis excellent as the frightened hero.

"HOSTAGE exemplifies taut, confident filmmaking. Bruce Willis draws upon the full measure of his strong physical presence, his intelligence and his considerable emotional resources held in reserve." 03/11/2005 p.E14

Entertainment Weekly
"[T]he film's vaguely haunted, melancholic European sense of displacement does our Bruno good." 03/18/2005 p.41-43

"HOSTAGE is wonderfully nasty funny -- thanks to an authentic performance from Bruce..." 05/01/2005 p.133

San Francisco Examiner 5 of 10
Were it presenting itself as nothing more than a standard action thriller, Hostage would simp - Anita Katz

James Berardinelli's ReelViews 8 of 10
Hostage represents Bruce Willis' latest attempt to produce a thriller with the kind of broad - James Berardinelli

Chicago Sun-Times 7 of 10
...I am not much concerned about such logical flaws, because the main line of the movie is emotional - Roger Ebert
