Scott Roper is the best hostage negotiator in San Francisco. His girlfriend Veronica "Ronnie" Tate is a newspaper reporter. Scott and Carmen have a dog named Troy. While listening to a baseball game on his car stereo, Scott is called downtown where a man named Earl is holding 17 hostages in a bank. Scott rescues the hostages by shooting Earl. Scott is then assigned a partner -- sharpshooter Kevin McCall. That night, Scott takes his friend, Lieutenant Sam Baffert, to see a man named Michael Korda. Scott waits downstairs while Sam is in Korda's apartment. Sam asks Korda about a man who deals in stolen jewelry, because Sam suspects that some of the dealer's jewels came from Korda, who is a professional jewel thief. Sam's visit with Korda ends with Korda killing Sam. When Scott hears a woman in the building scream at the sight of Sam's body, Scott runs inside the building and sees the body. Scott wants revenge on Korda, but Captain Frank Solis refuses to let Scott work the case, so Scott decides to work the case on his own. Scott and Kevin go to a horse race track, where they win a bundle of money, then they are called to a downtown jewelry store where hostages are being held. When Scott notices that Korda is the hostage taker, Korda grabs a hostage and leaves in a truck. Scott and Kevin use Captain Solis's car to chase Korda. Korda wrecks the truck, and leaves the hostage behind when he gets out of the truck. Korda then boards a trolley car, and Scott and Kevin start chasing the trolley car. While up close, Scott jumps onto the trolley car, leaving Kevin to drive Solis's car. Scott and Kevin manage to stop the trolley car, and they chase Korda into a parking garage, where Korda tries to hit Scott with a car. Scott and Kevin still manage to grab Korda. During visitation at the jail with his cousin Clarence Teal, Korda orders Teal to kill Ronnie as a way to get revenge on Scott. Teal shows up at Ronnie's apartment that night and attacks Ronnie. Scott shows up and chases Teal down the fire escape, and Teal is hit and killed by a car. On the next morning, Korda escapes from the jail, and soon after escaping, Korda kidnaps Ronnie, luring Scott into a confrontation at an abandoned shipyard.
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.
So Eddie Murphy wanted to make a more serious cop film this time around, after producing a string of comedies, well, he should've just stuck to making more of those comedies..., I personally don't believe serious acting is for him; throughout the film I wanted to laugh, even though the film wasn't funny, was it simply Eddie Murphy's presence that made me react that way?
On ground level, "Metro" wasn't all that bad, just a load of clichés bundled together to create a movie I had seen many times before, only under a different title and with different actors.
The film's beginning is just a way to build Murphy up for the inevitable cop chases baddie plot..., so yeah at the start it's all about showing what a 'bad-ass' negotiator Scott Roper (Murphy) is and setting the back story revolving around his relationship with his girlfriend up.
Then "Metro" really begins, Roper foils a bank robbery and relentlessly pursues the bank's robber, eventually apprehending the culprit and getting him hauled off to prison, it's over right?
The bank robber wants vengeance and sets out after Roper's girlfriend, resulting in the last half hour of the movie.
It was enjoyable I must admit but definitely wasn't anything special..., the only thing that excited me was seeing Eddie Murphy in something other than a comedy or family film.
Watch if you must but you're not missing anything if you don't. Eddie Murphy is not particularly funny in this film. To be honest I rarely do find him funny, though he does have his moments. But as a action film Metro is pretty decent: it has some good action, nasty villains and couple of hot chicks in it.
So Murphy plays police negotiator Scott Roper, who gets into a tough situation when a jewel thief decides, that Roper is the sole cause of his ill fortuned heist. I guess you can make the rest from that. Michael Rapaport plays the mandatory new guy in training and Carmen Ejogo is the first off, then on girlfriend. And if you were in doubt Roper isn't the by the book police.
The film is pretty clichéd, no denying that, but it does flow with certain easiness and is fun watch from now and then. it's not Murphy's best film, but it ain't his worst either. 646f9e108c
