WOW. Very intresting, but very good movie.

But by the time Willis's character saves this considerably long day, it's filmgoers who will no doubt feel like prisoners, as a movie that promises to be a taut nail-biter devolves into the kind of silly, overblown climax parodied so beautifully by Robert Altman in "The Player." Full Review
James Berardinelli
Hostage has suspense and momentum. Full Review

Wall Street Journal
The movie as a whole is nonsensical. And long. And slow. And head-poundingly loud as it culminates in slavering horror. Full Review
Kevin Thomas
Los Angeles Times
Made with energetic flair and no small dose of violence, mercifully handled with discretion, Hostage exemplifies taut, confident filmmaking. Full Review

My new theory is that Willis' own aesthetic soul is more old-world than he knows, and that he works best with directors who either are (Luc Besson) or might as well be (M. Night Shyamalan) European. Full Review
