| Better then I had expected
The film started off pretty ordinary with the hijacking of a bus full of deaf students and their teacher. But as it progresses it turns into quite an enjoyable and dramatic thriller.

I have not read the book this film is based on but from what I saw I would say the film is above the average for a "made for TV" movie.

Only one complaint here and that was why they felt the need to throw in swear words every few minutes just to make the film feel somewhat contemporary. At least that's the impression I got. From my POV it felt like they had just thrown in one two many of those special magic words and this ruined part of the enjoyment of this film for me.

Having said all this I would definitely recommend this film to anyone who likes drama/thriller kind of movies. On the whole it's not a bad experience at all. Plus you have classic actors like James Garner and Marlee Matlin, what more could you want?

6/10
