Even thought very cliched I thought this movie was surprisingly great. It featured believable performances and it kept me wanting to see what was going to happen throughout. Also I think Robert Ri'chard gives a breakthrough performance here.
This movie was not about how bad an actor Usher can be in your opinion(cause in mine he did good) but about standing up for something you believe in. It's about letting your voice be heard. And I think this is one of the best movies ever made.
Very suspenseful, however, this movie was awful! It kind of makes the precedent that if you don't get what you want you can break the law (i.e. hold someone hostage as they did in the movie). This would have been much more touching if it had a better story line.
