When Sabian's attempts for a peaceful resolution are constantly undermined by local authorities, he begins to suspect there may be method to Roman's madness. Summary written by Ronos
Comment: The Negotiator is a great non stop cat and mouse thriller which does not dissapoint in any way. Samual L Jackson and Kevin Spacey play a couple of Chacago cops who are trained in Negotiating in hostage situations. When Jackson finds he is being set up he Starts his very own Hostage Situation. Jackson is Superb in this film , but i'm not to sure about Spacey. If there was one ctitisism i had to level with this film is it is maybe too long, it could have been cut by 20 minutes. One other thing, The Late great J T Walsh is also in the movie in one of his last roles before his sad death. 8 out of 10
