"Hostage" will keep you captivated

By Michael Bushnell | March 15, 2005, midnight | In Print »

Bruce Willis makes a good everyman's hero. Any one who has seen the "Die Hard" series, which runs 47 times a day on USA Network, knows that his movies are definitely entertaining and that he does a good job in all of them. "Hostage" doesn't just fit the Willis thriller formula; it does a better job than most hostage thrillers have done in terms of telling a story and making it believable and entertaining the whole way through. The acting is outstanding, the plot is clever and what comes together is one of the best movies of the first part of the year. Really.

The intricate robot world of Robot City is amazingly imaginative but overly attentive to detail.

The Terrapins are in the tournament. The National Invitation Tournament. The NCAA Tourney will be Turtle-less for the first time since before the first Michael Jackson accusations came out. The Terps, and every other team that was snubbed this year shouldn't blame the committee; they only need to look at themselves when they wonder why they didn't get a ticket to the Big Dance.
