Synopsis


The Negotiator
F. Gary Gray directed this suspenseful action thriller based on a real case experienced by police in St. Louis. The James DeMonaco/Kevin Fox screenplay follows an accused man who is forced to commit crimes in order to prove himself innocent of murder. After Chicago police hostage negotiator Danny Roman (Samuel L. Jackson) succeeds in rescuing a little girl menaced by her gun-wielding dad, he's praised by both the police department and the media, and he returns to his usual cop routines with his longtime partner, promising his new wife Karen (Regina Taylor) he'll make it home for dinner every night. Then his partner, who had evidence of embezzlement within the police department, is killed. Since Danny arrives at the crime scene only seconds later, he's the main suspect, and Chief Al Travis (John Spencer) asks him to turn in his gun and badge. Danny invades the Chicago Internal Affairs Division headquarters and tries to get the truth from Inspector Terence Niebaum (J.T. Walsh) while holding two assistants and Commander Frost (Ron Rifkin) as hostages. He then calls for an outsider from another precinct, hostage negotiator Chris Sabian (Kevin Spacey). When Sabian arrives, the two compete for control, while Danny attempts to prove to him that he's been falsely accused. The film is dedicated to J.T. Walsh, who died not long after the production wrapped. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

    This was a great movie with an excellent plot and actors to pull it off;and you never knew who the real bad guy was until the last five minutes of the show. The bad and the ugly;it was the intense language at the first half-hour of the movie. But if you can survive the first half hour;then you'll really get into this film. It really is a good action-thriller movie too see.

    Kevin Spacey and Samuel L Jackson do a great job in this film. Their acting is top notch. However, some of the other characters are a bit flat and predictable, and the plot itself could use some more twists and turns. Still, overall a good purchase and fun to watch!

    Samuel Jackson and Kevin Spacey in one movie. Each actor does a great job in this movie. Both Jackson and Spacey,in other films, occupy their movie space in intense and unique ways. This film allows them to be the to do what they do best.

    The first time I saw this movie I knew nothing about it and loved it. I have since watched the movie multiple times and still love it, The Negotiator is just one of those movies that you can watch again and again and not get tired of watching.
