Bruce Willis's daughter in the movie, Amanda, was played by his daughter Rumer Willis. Rumer wanted the part, but Willis made her audition like everyone else and she got the part. See more »

Hostage is breathtaking from the first to the last second. Not only is the story well elaborated pure and to the point with no frills but also Bruce Willis has added more facets to his "last boyscout" personality.Bruce returns as we have seen him so many times before - a lonesome cowboy having trouble in his marriage and with his teenage daughter. And yes he is a police chief once more. But he stepped down in his career as blaming himself for a mistake he made in the past. He is scared and even cries which makes him so human and almost fragile- yet he is a tough negotiator still.He suffers and we suffer with him as he portraits a hero which is much more real. Willis has matured and his amazing performance just blew me away. Hostage is a must see.
