      jelisije j A questionable FBI agent must deal with a hostage situation that will either redeem or condemn himself at the end. A solid logical entertaining hostage movie definitely better than straight to dvd material. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Only carried on watching because of 'Grandpa' but the twist was good and didnt see that one coming! Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member I'm not actually sure why this was on the Scream channel in the first place, but it was. I don't really know why I watched it, but I did. Sadly, it was really quite bad. Also, the name is a pretty bad pun. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member I did not really like this movie. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member This gripping and exciting thriller turns on a clever premise; a trio of violent psychopaths hold a busload of deaf-mute students hostage in a standoff with the police. The duel between the seasoned hostage negotiator (James Garner) and the hostage takers is superbly crafted. And I like Marlee Matlin's character as a confident teacher of the deaf who's trying to protect and plan to escape with her deaf students away from the psychopaths. The movie is well acted, and the on location photography is acceptable. Highly recommendation! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
