646f9e108c Roper, a hostage negotiator catches a murderous bank robber after a blown heist. The bank robber escapes and immediately goes after the man who put him behind bars. The ending is played out with Roper and his partner McCall attempting to rescue Roper's kidnapped girlfriend. A major element in the plot is the relationship between Roper and his girlfriend.
Scott Roper is a wisecracking hostage negotiator. When his friend and fellow police officer is assassinated by a dangerous jewel thief, he is prepared to do just about anything to bring the killer to justice. But as his quiet investigation progresses, he must also train an ultra smart SWAT sniper to become a negotiator just like him.
* Brief Spoiler *<br/><br/>It&#39;s a breath of fresh air when an action movie these days simply resorts to the typical clichés and doesn&#39;t try to impress the viewer too much. Twenty years ago this would have been bad. Now, with each and every movie trying to surpass the last entry into the genre and, for the most part, ending up as an overblown bore, the standard action flicks are wanted more than anything.<br/><br/>&quot;Metro&quot; (1997) is just that. It&#39;s got some of the oldest tricks in the books while adding lots of neat stunts and action pieces. Towards the end, the female love interest of the hero is tied to a metal mechanism that will slice the girl&#39;s head off if the red safety button is not pressed. The villain lets go, the hero presses the button as quickly as he can, and moments later the villain returns with a sports car, driving right towards the hero. If he lets go of the button, the girl&#39;s head comes off. If he doesn&#39;t move, though, the villain will run him over with the car and the girl will die anyway. What&#39;s he do?<br/><br/>It&#39;s the classic action ideas such as this that help the movie. It reminded me of those old silent movies where the dastardly villain would tie a helpless girl to a railroad track, then climb into his stolen steam train and surge down the track towards her. But &quot;Metro&quot; also leaves room for car chases and shoot-outs - in one scene, a San Francisco trolley is hijacked by the bad guy, and the hero pulls up alongside the trolley in a Cadillac, jumps aboard, fights the villain, ends up pushing the full speed lever, and ramming the trolley into cars and right off of its line. It proceeds to scrape along the sloping road, off its tracks, scraping metal, ramming into everything in its path.<br/><br/>It reminded me of the car chase in &quot;The Rock,&quot; another good action movie with a visibly larger budget but the same fun quotient as &quot;Metro,&quot; which is &quot;Beverly Hills Cop&quot; meets &quot;The Negotiator,&quot; for the most part.<br/><br/>Action movies always have setups that pay nothing to the movie other than a character introduction. &quot;Metro&quot; has a great one. We are introduced to the hero, Roper (Eddie Murphy), who is *not* the film critic on Ebert &amp; Roeper, the latter of whom I could not get out of my head every time the name Roper was said on-screen.<br/><br/>Roper is a hostage negotiator. He talks down the bad guys from what they&#39;re doing, and when things get really bad he has to take drastic action - such as shooting the bad guy in cold blood. Roper does this in the beginning after a funny and original setup scene, in which he walks into a building with a bag of donuts. The hostage taker doesn&#39;t believe they&#39;re just donuts. &
