We’re still waiting for the role that will prove that Jon Hamm has a future after Mad Men. This middling hostage negotiation drama doesn’t insult our intelligence yet is still not that much more impressive than an average ‘let’s go to a war zone!’ episode of NCIS. Hamm delivers excellent work as the put-upon diplomat in a tight, tight spot. Co-starring Rosamund Pike and Mark Pellegrino, and filmed in Morocco. On Blu-ray from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment/Bleeker Street.
