If you're looking for a die hard action movie with wild car chases, bloody shootings, international terrorism and (to top it off) a disco soundtrack - look no further! Hostages! is THE action movie of the seventies. I'm no fan of the action genre in general, but Hostages! gets my adrenaline pumping like it's bloody hunting season! Do yourself a favor and rent this movie. it deserves to be cut some slack.
