Completely and utterly dreadful.
12 March 2015 | by stormboxSee all my reviews

Unrealistic dialogue, dreadful acting and cheap (zero) budget movie that had me wishing for an allied air strike to put us all out of our misery. That is 90 minutes of my life that I will only remember for the wasted time I will never get back.

The DVD version I bought was called 'Time is Running Out ... Hostage', and the cover shows helicopters and special forces which give a misleadingly exciting image for the boring drivel to come. Instead we get stock footage of Iraqi atrocities taken from news reels spliced with 85 minutes of interminable conversations set in a dusty basement with the American hostage/infidel, and four Iraqi terrorists/victims who take it in turns to give stereotypical monologues justifying their atrocities while the clean shaven hostage begs for his life and cries his eyes out. If you really must watch it then the first and last five minutes is all you need - and even that is 10 minutes you could have spent more wisely by flossing your teeth or putting your other DVDs into alphabetical order.
