About the Movie

Action superstar Bruce Willis powers a nail-biting thriller that crackles with action and suspense! When Jeff Talley became Chief of Police in a sleepy town, the thought he'd left behind the traumas of his career as a big city hostage negotiator. But when a random crime escalates into a deadly standoff, Talley finds himself thrust into a situation far more volatile and terrifying than anything he could ever imagine!

Decent movie....price????

This is a decent movie, esp. if you like Bruce Willis. Some plot holes, nothing really new, but interesting to watch. However, you can buy the blu-ray for alot less than the itunes price. Itunes, get real with alot of your pricing.

Great movie!

Bruce Willis does it again! Great action movie, great plot, great acting! Everything you want from an action film. Highly recommend it!
