Single mom and FBI agent Laura Martin is about to take on the toughest case of her career! She must negotiate with a desperate woman stricken with cancer who has taken over a hospital in order to get her hands on an experimental drug. Every second counts and one wrong move could cost many lives.Written by
We begin "4 Days Earlier" with the robbery of a convenience store. It becomes a dangerous hostage situation. The swaying, shaky camera-work is dizzying and makes it difficult to watch. But this effect is used mainly for the hostage situations. The significance of "4 Days" is unclear, and action likely changes to the present somewhere early in the running time. Our heroine is pretty blonde FBI agent Elizabeth Rohm (as Laura Martin). She specializes in hostage situations; when a mishap incurs a lawsuit, she is given an unplanned vacation. Divorced a year, Ms. Rohm dates her FBI agent partner, athletically-built Woody Jeffreys (as Frank Gerrard)...
Rohm's teen daughter Taylor-Anne Reid (as Taylor) misses her dad and resents Mr. Jeffreys horning in on the family. They are friendly with pretty blonde housewife Chandra West (as Elizabeth "Beth" Moss) and her teen daughter Britt McKillip (as Annie Moss). Unfortunately, Ms. West's daughter is deathly ill. When mother West learns her daughter's experimental medication will be discontinued, she becomes desperate. It climaxes with a hostage situation at "Burnaby Hospital". The mother/daughter scenes are nice, Jerry Wasserman (as Jon Di Carlo) and the supporting cast add some spark, but "FBI: Negotiator" never takes you hostage.
*** FBI: Negotiator (10/24/05) Nicholas Kendall ~ Elizabeth Rohm, Chandra West, Woody Jeffreys, Taylor-Anne Reid
