USA 2005, 114 minutes
Dir. Florent Emilio Siri
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Action/Adventure, Suspense/Crime / Policier, Hostages & Terrorism


Aroview: Bruce Willis negotiates familiar territory as a SWAT agent drawn into a messy siege in a high-security mansion, where three white-trash lowlifes have taken a wealthy accountant (Pollack) and children hostage.

Haunted by a previous failure to save a mother and daughter during a similar crisis, Willis wrestles his demons and the unfolding peril of his latest crisis with shaved head, one-liners and distraught expressions all in place. Plotwise this is satisfyingly convoluted, with a convincing streak of sadism that leads directly into the massive overkill of the finale.

Those who have discovered dir. Siri's brilliant THE NEST should be well-pleased by his Hollywood debut.
