Storyline

People in a Pittsburgh bank are taken hostage when a bank-robbery goes wrong. It's the work of a group of initially masked Iraq veterans, lead by sergeant 'Wolf', who also has secret trump-cards outside. The police lays siege to the bank, with experienced Horst Cali as negotiator, whose authority is however challenged by the D.A.'s office, deputy chief Abrami, a local tycoon leaning politically to save his daughter and the FBI. Written by KGF Vissers

Well written, well plotted show
26 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

I just finished watching the pilot myself. I couldn't help but think how well done this was.

"The Nine" had a similar premise, but it fell flat of expectations. "The Kill Point," by contrast, was tautly suspenseful, was laden with brilliantly crafted characters, and brought the sublime talents of Donnie Wahlberg and John Leguizamo to the forefront.

The writing made you actually feel for the characters, both "good" and "bad." Wahlberg and Leguizamo play off each other perfectly in a cat-and-mouse hostage game which, at least, kept me guessing as to how it was all going to play out.

Even the smaller details, like the cinematography and music, the colors used by the production designer, the little quirks of all the characters, make this story feel so real despite the implausibility of it all.

This is a show well worth watching, and I can't imagine not loving every moment of this truly intelligent miniseries. In the end, I wish more shows were done this well.
