Oops, what a waste of time. [i]Held Hostage[/i] is based on the true story of Michelle Renee, a bank executive who is kidnapped, held prisoner (along with her daughter) and terrorized for 14 hours, then forced to steal a large amount of cash per the demands of three masked men. The movie covers too much of what happened afterward and hurriedly at that. It morphs from thriller to sentimental and courtroom mush within the first 15 minutes. Too much damn crying for my taste.
