It's a terrible movie, terrible acting, half the cops sound like they are from the Czech republic, Edward Furlong plays his usual, the troubled and misunderstood everydude dude. Micheal Madsen's irrational screaming, which looked like it actually spooked the other actors, was the highlight of the film. You can tell Michael revels in the career suicide he's committing in these low budget flicks he likely stars in for the free booze. Of course he is actually a great actor but he is not putting in a lot of effort here. I don't think it's a stretch to say his character in this movie is the worst hostage negotiator in human history. With all the irrational screaming, irrational characters, irrational plot lines and horrendously bad dialog, this movie was actually fun to watch. I gave it two stars for the so bad its almost good but not quite quality of the movie.
