THIS is how a thriller should! Edge of your seat stuff!
I just loved this movie. Tense. Engrossing. Gripping from start to finish. All words to describe a conversation with Johnny Betts. But they also adequately describe Bruce Willis’ latest movie Hostage. The movie could also be referred to as Redemption because that’s definitely what you’ll see this as if you have been disappointed with Bruce’s recent efforts.
Hostage sacrifices heavy action and humor for a darker, more character-driven tale, and it works. THIS is how a thriller should be!
Are you in the mood for a dark, intense, edge-of-your seat thriller? Then Hostage will most certainly entertain. If you’re the type of moviegoer who only knows how to complain about clichés and coincidences then I’m sure you’ll do the same here. I recommend loosening up and enjoying life a little.
Well-acted and Emotional Action Thriller
I went into this movie with moderate expectations, but was very impressed with how good it was. Thoroughly entertaining from start to finish, Hostage offered some great action, drama, emotion and most of all some fantastic acting, mainly by Bruce Willis and Ben Foster. I have not always enjoyed Willis’ movies, but this one was reminiscent of some of his better roles, ie. Die Hard and Sixth Sense.
I have read some of the media’s reviews of this film and some have been unjustifiable harsh. Were they watching the same movie? Once again, I am glad that I did not listen to the critics because I would have missed this movie. If you are in the mood for a tense, gritty thriller with believable and emotional characters, Hostage will not disappoint. I give it 8.5/10.
