Great cast. Well written screenplay. A top notch police negotiator, after being falsely accused of killing his partner, (Samuel L Jackson as Lt. Danny Roman), knows he's been set up, takes hostages and holes up in the Chicago Police Internal Investigation Services Unit . Kevin Spacey as Lt. Chris Sabian, another crack police negotiator from the North Side is called in to try to talk Danny down. Meanwhile, David Morse as the Tactical Commander, is itching to breech to save the hostages. Roman is being set up to take the fall for corruption in missing money from the Police Pension fund, His friends and fellow officers cannot be trusted. Paul Giamatti, a police snitch, is in the wrong place at the wrong time and is included in the hostages Roman controls. Incredibly funny and talented, he adds comic relief to the intense and fast moving storyline along with Danny Roman. A good book or movie will grab you in the first few minutes and have a great, if not explosive (pun intended) ending. This one comes in second to Scarface on my list of favorites. This one has great special effects, show a well trained police sniper who sympathizes with Roman. As Roman says in the movie, "We are here to find out who killed Nate and who is stealing from the pension fun, and we are NOT leaving until they found!"

How does Negotiating works? If you bought this film to see how the police handle Negotiating, you might be a little upset. But this film overall is a nice movie, if you love to see Police Movies then this one fits in nicely. All the helicopters, SWAT, FBI, Snipers all came in when Samuel L. Jackson held some hostages to try to prove his innocence. Dolby True HD 5.1 surround sound in this movie proves to be above average. Guns and helicopters flying around appears to be well Good! But when it comes to dialogue sometimes it appears to be soft.

Quite a no. of Blu-Ray when you started to play it, it will show you the front menu 1st. But The Negotiator doesn't, it immediately went to play the movie and i was disappointed with the lack of interactive menu. Extras are little, Video Quality is above average for this price it should be a great deal for most of us.

The Negotiator is a fast-moving emotional story of all of the team members who thought they knew each other. Then came doubts, fear and anger when fellow officers became suspect in money laundering. No one knew who or what to believe when one respected officer was murdered. Who would be next? Was the best friend really a killer? How would officers' families be affected? Were there warning signs all along? Now there are hostages with their lives on the line and sharp-shooters at the ready to take down a crazed killer or to keep that officer from finding out the truth about his teammates! The touch and go internal battle is full of fast-flying bullets and helicopters light up the night skies like the Fourth of July. How many people will survive? Will it end like you hope? Will anyone ever know who is guilty or innocent?

Jackson and spacey were great two good men and one went bad and how they can solve how he was set up with out hurting innocent people. Sam is a negotiator for the police and so is kevin and sam is wrongfully accused of killing his partner and kevin has to help him with out having him go to jail for life or killing innocent people. Its fun action suspense and you will try to find out who you can trust.
