Talking their way out of trouble; THE NEGOTIATOR (15, 140mins).
Undermining our enjoyment is a flawed set-up which means that we never believe in Roman's behaviour. And the details of the pension swindle are incredibly confusing. But when Jackson and Spacey face off, all such quibbles vanish. There's a brilliant movie in here, but it outstays its welcome by half an hour. At times I felt as if I was being held hostage.
