Jeff Talley (Bruce Willis) is a disillusioned hostage negotiator who leaves Los Angeles to become chief of police in a small town. Then three delinquent teenagers follow a family home intending to steal their car, but find themselves trapped in a compound on the outskirts of town owned by a corrupt accountant. Panicked, the teenagers take the family hostage, placing Talley in exactly the kind of situation he never wanted to face again.
Talley readily hands the hostage situation over to the sheriff and leaves the scene. But inside the compound is information critical to the mysterious criminals and their operation. They will stop at nothing to get what belongs to them, including taking Talley's family hostage, forcing him to resume the command he had abandoned.
What the critics are saying:
"Director Florent Siri shoots everything in a burnished haze of MTV bling and slathers Bruce's operatic emoting with violins, like mustard on ham. It's nasty, violent, artistically barren and kind of fun."- Paul Arendt, BBCi Film"Explosions, gunfights and suspense may keep you awake for a while, but not if the movie assaults logic and holds common sense hostage."- Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune"A pile of blood-soaked toxic waste dumped onto the screen in an attempt to salvage Bruce Willis's fading career as an action hero."- Stephen Holden, New York Times
Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
