This film is about a hostage situation going live in a programme on TV where presenter and financial advisor George Clooney is held hostage by an angry disgruntled psychotic invester Jack O Connel who has lost a substantial amount of money. Julia Roberts plays the programme producer and the entire episode takes place in the studio right in front of her and the other staff.

Director Jodie Foster( Silence of the lambs. Flight plan) make a tense film which unfolds on a real time basis and the continuous tension keeps the viewer hooked. Did the plot require this hugely talented couple ? Not exactly and hence they are definitely constrained by the stock situations in the plot. This is no Noting Hill or Ocean's 11. The proceedings are also predictable to a great degree. The entire film deals with a collection of negotiations with Jack and after some time it gets repititive. The climax sees a sinister scheme unfolding, All in all a fairly engaging film. Both George and Julia go about their roles in a perfuntory manner. Their talent is hugely underutilised basically because of the unusual plot which gives them no scope.
