The Negotiator directed by F. Gary Gray

I have realized that the more movies I watch, the more I can see Hollywood formulas as they unfold.  This movie shows its age with the formulaic plot and predictable camera shots.

Pop quiz: what was the point of making Samuel Jackson’s hair red?  I don’t know either.

The acting was executed well, considering the weak dialogue.  Kevin Spacey can act his way out of almost any poor script.

Wow.  I am so uninspired by this movie that I am too bored to describe the plot.  I have to respect Ebert and Roeper for being able to talk at length about mediocre films.  It’s so much easier to love or hate.
I enjoyed watching it, but I guess I expect more from a movie from this.
