Storyline

Convicted killer Laurence Dvorak grants an exclusive last interview to TV newswoman Alana Powers shortly before his scheduled execution. Urbane and unrepentant, he seems almost mild at first. But Dvorak's real intention is revealed when he takes Powers, her crew and two guards hostage, and demands that the television network broadcast an execution - live. Written by Anonymous

Mildly entertaining but needed more work.
2 September 1999 | by (England) – See all my reviews

I completely didn't expect to see this, I came home one evening and it was on. However I was instantly compelled to watch it. The death penalty is an area I find quite interesting and this film plays on that. Bruce Davison was excellent even though he didn't really seem to be in control 100% of the time. I wasn't quite sure, though, how Alana Powers really was the host of one of the best national talk-style shows as I found her actually rather dull. There are some really great supports and the final scene between Lorraine and Kenny was done extremely well.

This is one of those movies that you shouldn't go out of your way to watch, but it's definitely worth a good look if it comes your way.
