"The Kill Point"
(2007) TV mini-series....Chloe
(from Spike TV's press release) "The Kill Point"
(originally dubbed "The Kill Pit") revolves around a
downtown bank robbery by a team of American Iraqi-War veterans. More
than a dozen hostages from all walks of life are taken, ranging from
the daughter of a business tycoon to an adulterous couple.
Throughout the eight-hour event, viewers will follow the escalating
action as the volatile soldiers plot their way out, the negotiator
anticipates their moves and the hostages desperately try to survive.
Time is critical and the game intensifies with surprising twists at
every turn. Told in semi-real time, in the same vein as 24, this
action-packed show takes the audience through every move as the
story unfolds – the meticulously planned bank heist, the SWAT team
maneuvers and the attempts of the hostage negotiator to resolve the
situation with a minimal body count. With the clock ticking and no
sense as to how things will unfold, viewers will be on the edge of
their seats guessing what will happen next.
