Storyline

The Hostage is about a gang of high-end thieves who plan to break into a really rich businessman's house, hack into his computer, and download all his money. Ted Prior plays a down-on-his-luck former special forces dude who signs on with this crew so he can make some cash that he and his daughter can live off of. Things go wrong, though, and the guys are holed up in the mansion, holding the rich dude hostage, while the feds have them under siege outside, led by agent Cynthia Rothrock. Will the thieves get away with the cash? Written by IvanWong

It could have been great but ultimately it disappoint so much unfortunately
3 April 2014 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

It does not have a bad script but the budget of this little movie is a very tiny.I think is the budget of a car only.This is an action movie.Because i am a Cyntnthia Rothrock fan i thought that this movie will not disappoint because i thought it will have great fights scenes with her.But Cynthia don't fight in this movie, she just shoots here and there. I've waited for such a long time(1996) that she will play in a new movie on the same level with her older but classic films like: 1.Righting Wrongs 2.No retreat no surrender II 3.Blonde Fury 4.Tiger Claws 5.Martial Law II 6.Rage and honor II 7.Irresistible Force 8.Lady Dragon II 9.Guardian Angel Maybe WHITE TIGER,PRISON RAID,Star Raiders: The Adventures of Sabre Raine or BLUE SUEDE will not disappoint.So now we'll have to wait for what will be released next.Her movies from 1997 until 2013 were disastrous unfortunately.
