Danny Roman, played by Samuel L. Jackson is the best hostage negotiator in his precinct, and is framed for the murder of his partner and for stealing money from a disability fund. To clear his name and find the real killer of his friend, Danny takes hostages and forces the police to bring in a negotiator from another precinct, because he believes some people from his precinct are corrupt. This negotiator is Chris Sabian, played by Kevin Spacey. He sets up all the usual gadgets to watch Danny, but Danny knows all the tricks. After a while, Chris begins to think Danny is innocent, and starts helping him uncover the truth.

The Negotiator is a very interesting film that sets up a very interesting plot very well. Acting performances are great from both leads and the supporting cast as well. This is definitely not a stupid or predictable film, and even the action is quite good. The only problem this film has is that it becomes a little boring waiting for the next thing to happen to Danny or the hostages. But with a suspenseful finale, The Negotiator is an intelligent thriller that I would recommend.
