Hostage

I rented this movie purely because it stars Bruce Willis. He's fabulous. I usually love anything he's in. And while this movie had it's good points, overall it was just kinda flashy. The basic premise is that three kids take a house hostage, but they don't know that the guy who owns it is an accountant for the mob. So the mob takes hostage this other guys family so he'll take care of other certain things and make sure the negotiations go their way.But that guy is Bruce Willis. In the opening scene of the movie, he's in LA with a serious bead, negotiating with some psycho who ends up killing a kid. And so because he considers himself all washed up, he moves to this little town, and becomes sheriff.

The overall movie isn't bad, but it isn't great either.
