Crisis Point follows a hostage negotiator who finds it hard to get back
to work after a botched job in which someone dies. She then finds
herself in a situation where she must return to work to help save a
The opening scene is well executed and grabs your attention. Although
plagued by an irritating musical score the film moves along at a brisk
pace. The hostage scenes are tense and well done. Sure there are a few
plot contrivances and I'm not sure how realistic the negotiation scenes
are but this is a film and not a documentary, so I wasn't too bothered
about that aspect. It's all fairly predictable stuff but most
importantly it is an enjoyable film and better than some much higher
budget hostage films I've seen.
Rhona Mitra is a decent actress and does a very good in the lead role
here. The rest of the cast also do a decent job especially Elias
Toufexis who is good as the main hostage taker.
If you don't expect too much then this in an entertaining film. One of
the better TV movies you will see.
