I also liked the twisted look at the ways that hostage crises directly and indirectly affect people as these situations take a life of their own. In such things people and groups seem to go with what they are most comfortable with. Most interesting was how Clooney's character got to know his hostage taker and began to care abut him. Also interesting how the movie portrayed the narcissistic corporate CEO.
I liked the movie and, on a scale of ten, give it ★★★★★★★☆☆☆.
