Movie Info

An electronic store erupts into chaos as four gunmen storm the premises. Rick Gomez, Sacramento Police Departments' top negotiator, realizes he needs to talk down the gunmen and keep everyone safe, all while juggling government politics. The gunmen leader doesn't want to hurt anyone, but his brother is a different story. A peaceful surrender quickly turns this sleepy city into a national tragedy. Inspired by the true story of the 1991 Good Guys Electronics Store siege in Sacramento, California--the largest hostage siege negotiation ever attempted in the United States--A Clear Shot examines a bizarre turn of events as law enforcement attempt to save the hostages, as well the emotional trials and social pressures of immigrant assimilation into the American culture.

Critic Reviews for A Clear Shot

All Critics (7) | Rotten (7)

  • The way everyone behaves in this movie comes from hostage situation movies rather than real-life.

    June 11, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • A Clear Shot is a clear miss.

  • Mario Van Peebles single-handedly imbues it with enough gravitas to make it somewhat watchable. Still, it begs the question: has he read the script, and if so, what was he thinking?

    June 11, 2020 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…
  • Based on real events, this hostage thriller has some timely, thoughtful things to say about race and (in)equality, but due to its low budget and its lack of suspense, it ultimately misses the mark.

    June 6, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The whole thing might've held together with more consistent character work. Ignoring the suggestion that the 63-year-old actor might be playing an inexperienced cop, the elder Van Peebles brings plenty of heft to a middling character.

    June 5, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Weirdly ambitious in some areas and far too low wattage in others, with Leisure unable to reach any noticeable levels of suspense as he wages war with limited budgetary coin.
