Unsatisfying
2 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

Gail O'Grady is believable as a hostage negotiator, but her domestic scenes with Michael Bowen playing her husband, a man whose personality is steadily deteriorating, are an indicator of why this film does not deliver. Bowen's performance borders on the comic. Can we blame the script? Well, despite being a little obvious and with an ending that indicates a follow up was being considered, it's not bad. The supporting players, with the exception of a disappointing Don S Davis seem to make the right moves, and the action sequences are copybook, so the director is OK, which leaves Bowen, and his talent does not extend to portraying the pivotal character with any credibility.
