| Totally Riveting
I was totally riveted to this film from start to finish. In order for the film to work the performances have to be excellent and they are. Even the actors playing minor characters are compelling. Particularly great are Jay O. Sanders and Ciaran Hinds. Also Kathy Bates, Colin Firth, and Harry Dean Stanton turn in winning performances.

While the film may be to a certain extent fictionalized, it does give a very powerful portrayal of the experiences of the hostages, and what they were put through. One particular sequence that is chilling is the recreation of the videos featuring Terry Anderson that were sent to the International News Media.

The film also makes you more aware of how international politics works and how scary our own and other government bureaucracies can be.
