American Hostage pulls back the curtains on a terrorist plot centered on a group of terrorists holding two American soldiers hostage on U.S. soil. They demand the release of all prisoners of Guantanamo Bay or they will kill the soldiers.
Terrorists. Kidnapping. A plot gone wrong. American Hostage tells the story of four terrorists coming together to create change within the American government and affect their stance on Guantanamo Bay. With tensions high, emotions between the terrorists collide, which sets the story into a downward spiral. American Hostage unveils the story of Asad, Hamal, Shahin and Fahdah, who each has their own motive for joining the war in terror. Asad, the appointed leader of the group, manages the team with strict and clear direction, taking orders behind the scenes from Al-Saqri whose motives are unclear. Asad shows one weakness, the affection for fellow terrorist Fahdah, a soft spoken young Arab woman. Asad and Fahdah develop an adoration for each other, despite the disapproval from Fahdah's brother Hamal whose anger from the overall situation escalates throughout the story. Meanwhile Shahin, the fourth terrorist, and prisoner Sergeant Donald Young begin to form a bond as they share stories ...Written by
According to the original script Al-Saqri (played by Leon Salem) and the agent he's on the phone with at the end of the movie (played by Steve Heinz) are supposed to be Israeli Mossad agents. See more »
IMDb should have a category like "B-Grade movie" ...
... under the title.
When you see this, you can go "Ah, now I know what to expect", so you don't get caught when a few hundred others have watched a movie with blinkers on.
Or, maybe they should link in with Box Office Mojo & show the budget of the movie, directly under the name ... another "Ah, N/A means it's so low (read=bad) that they too ashamed to put a budget on". Yes, I actually searched for it there and it wasn't found. And yes, I know that not every movie is on that site.
Overall, don't waste your time. I'm guessing every person involved in this movie voted and hence (at time of writing this) the 384 voters were slightly biased, or high on something.
Watch at your own peril ...
