A just paroled white supremacist and his ruthless girlfriend kill a cop and take an African American family hostage. Meanwhile, Sobecki, the heavily-tattooed supremacist leader who oversees his criminal empire from behind bars, is not thrilled when he learns of his charge's screw-up. The patriarch of the family, an ornery ex-con himself, must rely on his wit and understanding of the racist mind to find a plan to free his family, but not before he confronts his own brand of bigotry and anger.

This is One of Those Low-Budget Movies that is Confined, Mostly, to a Couple of Small Rooms and the Director has the Characters Cry, Sob, and Bawl A Lot to Add Some Movement and Emotion to the Restrained Sets.
This is Basically All Over Emoted with Much Shouting, Except for Danny Glover Who Whispers and Mumbles for Contrast. The Conflict Between the Neo-Nazi Couple and the African-American "Family" Consists of Guns to the Face, and Waterworks.
Nothing Much Happens and a Few Flashbacks Relieve the Claustrophobic Atmosphere Once in Awhile and that Helps, but Ultimately the Film Goes Nowhere and Strains for Some Insight that is Rarely Attained.
Joe Anderson Does OK but the Constant Gun Barrell He Thrusts in the Faces of the Hostages Gets Boring and Redundantly Silly After a While. Dawn Oliveri as the White Supremacy "Groupie" as She is Described Waivers Wildly and Fluctuates Between Psychotic and Motherly.
None of this is Satisfying Trying to Deliver Messages About the Psychology of Hate Groups or the Bonding of Family in a Crisis that it Tries So Desperately to Convey. It is Done in an Overwrought Fashion and the Script is None too Smart About Any of It.
