The synopsis below may give away important plot points. Synopsis Lieutenant Danny Roman Jackson is a top police hostage negotiator.
Roenick tells Roman that his informant has not told Internal Affairs because he thinks they might be involved as well. When Roman goes for another meeting, he finds Roenick dead seconds before other police arrive, pinning Roman as the prime suspect.
Roman is forced to surrender his gun and badge, and his colleagues are skeptical of his protests of innocence. When Niebaum refuses to answer, Roman takes Niebaum, his administrative assistant Maggie, police commander Grant Frost and weak-willed con man Rudy Timmons as hostages.
Roman believes he can trust Sabian, because he talks for as long as possible, sees tactical action as a last resort, and being from another precinct eliminates him as a suspect in the disability fund scheme. He also discovers recordings of wiretapsincluding a conversation that suggests Roenick was meeting his informant before he was killed.
When Niebaum confronted the guilty officers, he received a bribe from them to cover up their crimes. They offered Roenick the same money, but when he refused to take it, their inside ringleader murdered him. Roman single-handedly fends them and the rest of his squad off, using the flashbangs he seized from the two officers in the previous failed breach.
Believing that Sabian and the police cannot resolve the situation, the FBI assume jurisdiction over the operation, cease negotiations, relieve Sabian of his command, and order a full breach.
Sabian confronts Roman to warn him about the breach, and Roman reveals that the corrupt officers murdered Niebaum and the "executed" hostage is still alive and gagged.
The police arrive and the corrupt officers enter the house, but they back off as Frost enters and tries to talk Roman down. When Frost exits the house, he discovers that Sabian only wounded Roman, who used a police radio microphone to broadcast his confession to the police surrounding the area.
Humiliated, Frost attempts to commit suicide, only to be foiled and arrested by the police. As Roman is loaded into an ambulance, Sabian gives his badge to him and departs.reaction paper (rizal the movie) While watching the movie, I have observed similarities and differences of some scenes from today’s youthLet’s start discussing about the similarities.

Jun 11, · OK, so at the gym yesterday I got caught up in "The Negotiator" with Samuel Jackson and Kevin Spacey. I watched an hour of it (including commercials), missed the very beginning and stopped just when things were getting interesting.
The Moscow theater hostage crisis (also known as the Nord-Ost siege) was the seizure of a crowded Dubrovka Theater by 40 to 50 armed Chechens on 23 October that involved hostages and ended with the death of at least people.
Samuel L. Jackson is Danny Roman, a hot shot police negotiator and the man of the hour in the police department. One day he wakes up to find that he has been set up, and now the police are after him.
In his panic, he takes control of a building. The Negotiator deserves a place among the best action/thrillers of the year. This is a Dog Day Afternoon for the '90s%.
