Storyline

A family on vacation stops at a roadside restaurant where a gang of criminals are holding the employees hostage. When one of the hostages tries to enlist their help, the family is added to the group. Disagreements on how the hostages should be treated leads to dissent among the criminals, who are awaiting the arrival of their leader. (The leader, for unexplained reasons, has all the stolen money.) Some hostages are killed; when the leader arrives, the hostages overpower them and free themselves. Written by Jake Euker

You're the hostage
9 March 2000 | by (Wichita, KS) – See all my reviews

I'M GOING TO DISCUSS THE "SURPRISE" ENDING, so sign off now if you really intend to see this.

I picked this loser up in the horror section of a local grocery store, so when the characters began to pointedly mention that they were awaiting the arrival of a criminal gangleader, I naturally assumed that something supernatural was going to put in a cameo toward the end. Wrong: the twist ending to this tiresome hostage melodrama is that the bad guys are fronted by -- are you ready for this? -- a woman! Too tedious to be any fun in even a B-movie way; since movies this bad usually depend on naked women or monsters to recoup their modest budgets, it makes you suspect that the director thought he was actually doing something. Wrong again. 2/10
