Armed men hijack a New York City subway train, holding the passengers hostage in return for a ransom, and turning an ordinary day's work for dispatcher Walter Garber into a face-off with the mastermind behind the crime.
Bo Laramie is a movie star who has finally achieved success. But success comes at a price, in the form of four persistent photographers known as the paparazzi. Using their dishonest methods of getting the money shot regardless of what it takes, they'll stop at nothing in exploiting Bo for every last penny. But when one of their ventures nearly costs Bo's life and that of his family when they cause a car accident and do nothing afterwords except take photos, Bo has finally reached his breaking point. In doing so, Bo decides to exact a crafty and complex revenge on those four who have enjoyed making his life a living hell with his focus on the paparazzi's ring leader, Rex Harper. Written by
Whilst researching the project, Paul Abascal spoke with one of the world's leading members of the paparazzi, a man who had obtained pictures of Elizabeth Taylor with her head shaved after brain surgery and of Barbra Streisand's private wedding to James Brolin. He had even gone to the expense of hiring a submarine to try and catch a few pictures of Princess Diana when she was holidaying in the tropics. See more »

You still think you're going to tell the police the truth about Laramie's accident, you'd BETTER THINK AGAIN! Not only will I broadcast this on every porno site on the internet, I'll make sure a copy ends up on your father's desk at the State Department.
You wouldn't do that?
Wouldn't I? That's not MY FACE you see on that screen. So go. GO to the police! SEE if I'm bluffing! Meanwhile, get out of my GODDAMN HOUSE! Get out of here!

Don't expect too much, the main characters acting ... well, lets call it medium. I liked the cameo of Chris Rock and I also enjoyed the Peter-Falk-Columbo-Detective snooping around and investigating. The no-1 bad guy (Tom Sizemore) did the best job being nasty, antisocial, all up for the money and ... scared. The story is good and entertaining but could go a little deeper, some twists here and there would have spiced it up a little ... it's too linear. The ending is OK, I don't think there will be a Paparazzi 2, but you never know these days :)
All in all a good, enjoyable movie you can watch without overpowering your brain.
