Not your average hostage situation

I'm at Bruce Willis fan. There. I said it.

But my most favourite of his films from recent years is, not surprisingly, not the latest die hard movies (in spite of how much I loved the first ones). It is in fact a little known film call Hostage. 

This is not your average cops & robbers action thriller and to say any more would spoil the twist that makes this so watchable!  Suffice it to say it's definitely worth a look, particularly for the excellent performances from both Ben Foster and Kevin Pollack. Foster's portrayal of the damaged, skeevie juvenile delinquent Marshall is chilling.

NSFK, definitely deserves its MA 15+ rating!
