Format: DVD
Director: F. Gary Gray
Cast: Samuel L. Jackson, Kevin Spacey, Ron Rifkin, John Spencer, J.T. Walsh.
Running Time: 135 minutes.
Rated R for violence and language.
When the director has the lucky chance to work with not just one, but TWO of the most exceptional modern actions of the past decade, he should have been licking his chops in anticipation. Director F. Gary Gray (whose previous work was with Ice Cube and Chris Tucker in "Friday") uses the likes of Samuel L. Jackson and Kevin Spacey to his advantage, creating a fast-paced action-drama that uses both actors as chess pieces that are intertwined in a suspenseful race against time.
Jackson stars as an extremely successful hostage negotiatior who loses his partner in an accident. When he is framed for the accident as murder, he takes matters into his own hands by taking hostages himself. Kevin Spacey is the top-of-the-line officer assigned to assist the police department with consultations with Jackson, only to find himself in the most unique hostate situation he has ever encountered. Both must learn to trust each other, with Jackson attempting to find the true answers about his partner's death and Spacey trying to keep his incredible reputation in tact.
Gray does a fine job using the intense script (which unfortunately does have a few logical lapses), producing a motion picture that possesses all the essential ingredients to be a successful and enteraining flick. Jackson is very good in the lead role, while Spacey is as his usual best. Although F. Gary Gray was lucky enough to have excellent people for support, he does a fine job pulling off one of the better action thrillers of the year.

One of the finest Police Hostage Negotiator:Danny Roman (Samuel L. Jackson) is framed for murdering his best friend (Paul Guilfoyle) and for embezzling money from his union`s pension fund. When nobody doesn`t want to believe him for not killing his partner & embezzling money. He decides to takes Hostages & try to clear his name. The only person, who could help him in this Situation is another Top Negotiator (Two Time Oscar-Winner:Kevin Spacey).
Directed by F. Gary Gray (Friday, A Man Apart, Set It Off) made a entertaining, suspenseful, action-thriller made surprisingly believable, thanks to Jackson & Spacey terrific performances and especially the Supporting Cast are Strong. The film wasn`t a Hit, when it was release in the Summer of 1998, despite Good Reviews by Critics & Audiences, who seen the film. This film did much better on Video. The Script might have some logic lapses but it`s a gripping & well-made taut thriller. Gray`s Best Film to Date. Written by James DeMonaco & Kevin Fox. Super 35. Grade:A-.

Samuel L. Jackson has become quite adept at portraying intense characters who are both likeable and bothersome. His cop in "The Negotiator" is a desperate man, who although perhaps innocent of the charges against him is certainly capable of having done them. By taking hostages, he automatically guarantees himself prison time even if he is exonerated of the murder charges against him, and yet this character cannot help but be likeable and sympathetic in Jackson's hands. Kevin Spacey's negotiator is both arrogant and clever, and the climax of the film shows his expertise at both negotiation and deception. A good suspenseful action film, with Jackson at times over the top but always in charge.

I've seen this one a couple of times -- the first time it was a little tough to follow (maybe I was just a little slow that day), but the second time it made much more sense. At points it gets a little tricky to keep the good guys and bad guys sorted out. Overall I would rate this as a highly enjoyable movie, primarily on the strength of the performances by Samuel Jackson and Kevin Spacey. Both of them do a bang-up job (no pun intended).
Jackson plays Danny Roman, a good cop who is falsely accused of skimming from the police pension fund. When the frame-up looks too solid to escape, Roman resorts to taking some hostages at the police station to buy the two things he needs the most -- the time and the information to prove his innocence. He begins to interrogate some of the hostages, several of whom are close friends, and to pick information from some sensitive computer files. Gradually he begins to uncover an ugly conspiracy involving corruption at various levels of the police department, but every question he answers seems to lead to two more.
In the meantime, the police respond to the hostage crisis and call in expert hostage negotiator Chris Sabian (played by Spacey) to "talk down" the apparently volatile Danny Roman. While Roman is predictably cast as a very sympathetic character, Sabian remains an unknown factor until the very end of the movie, a consummate professional whose loyalties and intentions can never quite be pinpointed. Roman is never sure from one moment to the next if Sabian is ally or enemy.
