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 Filmanchor

Are you sure you are not drunk??!
17 September 2016 | by graysina69See all my reviews

really??! 7.5 out of 10??! are you sure you are not drunk??! Based on IMDb ratings i chose this movie to watch, but again it is approved to me not all ratings can fetch you the dream. a real catastrophe; no matter the cast or the scenario or acting. this movie should be shown to students as a sample of "how not to make a movie!". the angles of shooting, the way actors or actresses looking at each other and specially the funny stress controlling actions. Anyway i thought maybe the voters were drunk while rating! so i tried to get drunk and watch the movie! but you know what?! i couldn't get further than 10 minutes. To people who still have not watched this; DON'T!
