The beginning and end credits take place as a virtual camera moves through a digitally replicated set with frozen action. This then fades into and out of the live action at the beginning and end of the film. See more »
This action thriller keeps you on the edge of your chair with a twist around every corner. The beginning credits were presented in a unique manner which transitioned quickly into the film. Bruce Willis portrays his character so accurately ...in the Bruce Willis way..as only a veteran actor can and you can be assured "Hostage" will become one of his most notable films. His emotional range was tested time and time again and he passed with flying colors. Another noteworthy mention should be for Ben Foster in his role as Mars Krupcheck. I almost felt sorry for him. His tormented and demented character came through so vividly in his glaring eyes. The overall performances by all cast was excellent...even the Beagle. Thanks for the adrenaline rush.
