Product Description

Product Description

Hostage

Amazon.ca

You get two hostage crises for the price of one in Hostage, an overwrought but otherwise involving thriller grounded by Bruce Willis's solid lead performance. Making a dramatic pit-stop on his way to Die Hard 4, Willis plays a traumatized former Los Angeles hostage negotiator, now working as a nearly-divorced police chief in sleepy Ventura County, California. Willis suddenly finds himself amidst two potentially deadly stand-offs when a trio of hapless teenagers seize hostages in the fortress-like home of an accountant (Kevin Pollack) whose connections to organized crime result in Willis struggling to rescue his estranged wife and daughter, who are being held hostage by faceless thugs at an undisclosed location. Having directed two of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell video games, director Florent Siri brings plenty of slick, competent filmmaking to Willis's desperate dilemma, and the film boasts a gritty, graphic style that draws attention away from implausible plot twists. The bothersome, over-the-top performances by the teenaged villains also slightly compromise this gloomy but emotionally gripping adaptation of Robert Crais's novel, named as one of Amazon.com's best books of 2001. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
If you enjoyed Robert Crais's novel by the same name and are expecting a more or less faithful adaptation of the book, you may want to skip this DVD. While it is a somewhat entertaining film, its plot bears only marginal resemblance to the book's plot.
The three kids do not rob a convenience store and kill the owner. The hostages' home is not one of many homes in a gated community, but stands alone as a fortress at the top of a mountain. In the novel, Mars is a vacant, overweight, hulking psychopath. In the DVD, Mars is a vacant, skinny psychopath. Many of the character's names are different from those in the book. None of the director's changes are an improvement on Robert Crais's novel.
And the acting, for the most part, is stilted at best and down-right amateurish at worst. The real star of this film is the hostages' house, an incredibly ugly fortress-like "mansion" complete with steel bars. In other words, nothing like the house described in the book. Oh well, at least it has the security system and hidden passageways described in the book.
