Linda Fiorentino, Wesley Snipes and Oliver Platt (in that order) star in this awfully tedious thriller with a questionable political message. Let's not talk about the issues like pro- or anti-gun control for now, because the film (which is directed by the same person who did "Children of the Corn 666" -- quite a damning title) has no thrills or suspence. And at the time of writing this, we have not seen Ms. Fiorentino for two years -- hope it has not killed her career.
The story is marginally interesting; I say marginally, for we later are to see much better "Phone Booth." Like Colin Farrell film, the protagonist Liberty Wallace (Linda Fiorentino) finds herself in a big trouble. Someone named 'Joe' (Snipes) aims a rifle at her while she is chained to a hotdog stand where an explosive device is set. And Liverty is a wife of a rich gun manufacturor (Oliver Platt), and Joe claims he lost his daughter because of the gun her company made.
The story, which starts promisingly, suddenly loses steam in the first fifteen minutes. And then, it's all about the confusing situations and paper-thin characters whom we just don't care. In terms of thriller, first of all, it is a total failure. See, if the guy Joe is really a good marksman as the film shows, why does he need a bomb in the first place? Unaccountably, the film introduces another 'bomb' rigged to the body of a poor fellow (who is supposedly having an affair with Liberty) which only detracts the tension of the main story.
The film rasies interesting questions such as, Is Liberty (or her husband) really responsible for the death of the people killed by guns? The director clearly leans on the left side, which in itself is no problem.

Warning***Some spoilers below

This movie has good moments, and creates a surprising amount of intensity for a story that revolves around an individual literally standing still. However, the political statements related to gun accessibility are way over the top and so heavy handed that they become trite. After a short while I found myself focusing more on the inaccuracies and inconsistencies of the political arguments instead of the movie itself.

For example, the individual who is upset about the random murder of his daughter by a gunman thinks nothing about killing other people's children. Hmmm... Not a particularly good protagonist.

There is absolutely no counter balance to the story, and the characters become so stereotyped that they lose an real appeal. This is especially true of Liberty, who lacks any redeming quality. Further, nearly everyone in the story winds up dead, except for Liberty, who gets to walk off with her boyfriend after leaving her husband, who unnecessarily placed himself in danger to try to save her, dieing on the street. She didn't even give him a backward glance. I have to admit that by the end of the movie, she was the only character I really wanted to see die. Instead, she is the only one who lives. Go figure... (I think the director wanted us to think of the husband as the villain and Liberty as the hero, but I can't think of a single appealing characteristic of Liberty whereas the husband demonstrated bravery, motivation, and a willingness to sacrifice for others.)

Over all, the movie isn't worth the ride. The cinemaphotography is stylish and the concept is neat. However, the politics are just too dogmatic and poorly argued, and the characters are not compelling. It could have been a good movie, but it just didn't turn out that way.

While Linda Fiorentino does a wonderful job starring as a hostage chained to a hot dog stand in the park of a crowded city and Wesley Snipes is probably even better as a sniper because he's out for revenge after his daughter was shot and murdered by a gun produced by Linda's husband, this film sure has its share of uninteresting moments. Instead of being suspenseful or thrilling which is what the film is supposed to be given the description and what it's advertised as, instead Linda and Wesley's characters spend most of their time having in-depth rational and intelligent conversations concerning the second amendment and gun laws which leads to a few unintentionally funny moments.

Oh sure occasionally police officers, news reporters and even a little child demanding a hot dog appear and Linda even whispers "Bomb" or spells out the word "Help" in a hot dog bun to see if anyone gets the hint that a sniper is pointing a gun at her from the upper floor of a nearby building, but nobody ever understands. I guess such hints need to be even more blatant if possible! For whatever reason Wesley's character -despite knowing Linda's trying to reach out for help and even SCREAMS "There's a bomb!" for the entire block to hear- he doesn't care enough to retaliate. I mean that should have been Wesley's cue to shoot her brains out. Eventually however, the crowd dissolves and the two resume having a conversation about guns some more. What? And they spend a LOT of time on the subject too- about 80 minutes worth of time.

There are a few moments that were exciting such as whenever Wesley sniped a few guys in the distance who were aiming at Linda and her hot dog stand.
