He frees hostages for a living. Now he's taking hostages to survive.
The police try to arrest expert hostage negotiator Danny Roman, who insists he's being framed for his partner's murder in what he believes is an elaborate conspiracy. Thinking there's evidence in the Internal Affairs offices that might clear him, he takes everyone in the office hostage and demands that another well-known negotiator be brought in to handle the situation and secretly investigate the conspiracy.

They just don´t make movies like this anymore.

A very good thriller if one considers the quite simple setting of the plot (a hostage negotiator is forced to take hostages himself to prove his innocence). I think if the betrayal had been staged in a bigger proportion (instead of stealing some money from the pension funds, something much bigger could have be imagined for the misdeeds of the corrupt police men) it would have help the movie a lot and would have made it much more gripping for the audience.
