Good suspense, some nice twists of the plot but messy ending.
The movie starts straight on, and from the first scenario, you can really tell this is going to be a tough movie. It has a few relaxing moments, but they are always followed up by extremely hard violence or almost unbearable tension. Well done!
This may be a spoiler, so maybe you should cover your eyes now, but I am very disappointed about the ending. The before mentioned well build tension is released through a very messy ending where everything just goes Die Hard in a uncool way. In my opinion that is really unfitting for such a great set up. Not well done!
Acting is average. Bruce Willis is really classic himself in this part - getting shot and covered in blood and dirt. I like the look on him in the first part of the movie though.
If you like movies about bad guys taking hostages and negotiators combined John McClane trying to save the day, this is a movie for you. It is not for the faint of heart.
