dull and boring
30 June 2001 | by (sacramento, ca) – See all my reviews

It seemed that this movie might be a steamy, sexy action thriller with Talisa Soto, but I soon found out after ten minutes of watching that this was just another boring spy flick with people shooting faceless villains and guys in suits looking mean. The plot is boring and so is most of the action. The romance isn't very steamy either, and there is no cache of naked babes as the box art would imply. Hostage tries too hard to be James Bond, and fails miserably.
