The critical consensus

The Negotiator is a decidedly old-school thriller: specific in scope, limited in action, grounded in political realities and conventional in resolution.

Despite possessing unusually detailed context for a thriller, it’s a bit like diplomatic efforts in the region: the same old story.

Hamm is so watchable he helps the film transcend its many eye-rolling clichés.

Kudos to Anderson and Gilroy for making a low-action, dialogue-heavy geopolitical thriller in this day and age. But aside from finally giving its star some strong material to work with, it doesn’t live up to its promise.
