Synopsis:
Dustin Hoffman and John Travolta team with award-winning filmmaker Costa-Gavras in a fierce tale of ratings-driven TV news gone mad. Travolta is Sam, a misguided museum guard who loses his job, then tries to get it back at gunpoint. Hoffman is Max, a local TV reporter taken hostage with schoolchildren when Sam locks down the museum. It's a desperate move for Sam, a career move for Max. He's on the inside of a live exclusive. Now he must give Sam's story a heroic spin, keep a cynical network anchor at bay, and above all, keep America watching. And as Max pulls the strings, the stakes grow higher, darker, madder.

Tiresome city - Mad City review by AS

Spoiler Alert
26/08/2017

Sort of a rewrite of the classic 'Ace in the Hole'. Of course, Hoffman and Travolta put in great performances; the supporting cast, however, are far too lightweight. The plot lacks any real depth, is extremely repetitive and ultimately goes on way too long.
