Storyline

Expert British hostage negotiator Dominic King (Trevor Eve) is called upon when a businesswoman (Emma Fielding) from the UK is kidnapped in South Africa by a sinister figure named Willard (John Hannah). When the release of the woman goes wrong and Willard strikes again in Britain, King realizes this was never a straightforward case of kidnapping for ransom, and that the man's motives run much deeper than ever imagined. King, along with his superior, Angela (Helen Baxendale), and assistant, Carrie (Amara Karan), must now work against the clock to bring Willard's latest victims home alive. Written by bobbyandbeans

All flash no writing
30 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There's not much to the story so they pad it with lots of shaky cam, extreme badly framed close ups, weird flashy edits overlayed with odd photo filter effects. You're supposed to be swept up in the urgency of harsh jagged cuts from scene to scene most of which are 45 seconds or less. The average shot is 1 second. There are all sorts of factual errors such South Africans kidnapping a Brit asking for dollars which is not a denomination in either country.

Dominic's boss is a tool who screams and scolds him about nearly everything. And at the end of the day being a hostage negotiator doesn't look that hard. Pretty much paint by numbers. By the way if you're so valuable to your company they'd carry millions of dollars in kidnap insurance wouldn't they hire a bodyguard?
