In the midst of an elaborate conspiracy, an expert negotiator is driven to the edge when he's framed for the murder of his partner, as well as embezzling money from his department's pension fund. His only chance to prove his innocence is to take hostages himself, acquire the services of another expert negotiator, and find out who's running the conspiracy before it's too late.Written by
Kevin Spacey and J.T. Walsh previously appeared in Dad (1989) and Outbreak (1995). Another link in common between both actors is that they both played the role of John Williamson in David Mamet's Glengarry Glen Ross: Walsh in the original play, and Spacey in the 1992 film version. See more »
At the end of the film, Danny is loaded into the ambulance correctly (head first). As it drives off, we see him and his wife in the ambulance and his body is now in the opposite direction, as if loaded feet first. See more »
Anyone who says this film is not good must be crazy! The Negotiator has the complete package intelligence, love, anger,comedy,suspense and action. An absolute terrific film which as well as having all the characteristics to make a classic, it has the cast to match. Samuel L Jackson at his best playing the role as Danny Roman, a negotiator with nothing to lose but all to prove. Kevin Spacey shows a strong side of his acting ability and is terrific in the role of Chris Sabien, another negotiator who has the sole interest of getting the truth!. The film is full of so many twists and turns that makes it one of the best thrillers ever!!! GUARANTEE...THIS FILM WILL NOT DISAPPOINT!!!
