Rating:
R

Suicide Kings is a 1997 noir film full of psychologic twists. The film is based on a short story by Don Stanford called The Hostage. Josh McKinney wrote the screenplay and Peter O'Fallon directed the film. Charlie (Christopher Walken), an ex mafioso, is unexpectedly taken hostage by five young men (Sean Patrick Flanery, Johnny Galecki, Jay Mohr, Jeremy Sisto, Henry Thomas) in need of $2 million dollars. The young men explain to Charlie that one of their sisters has been kidnapped and is being held at ransom - they need his money and fast. But Charlie is reluctant to pass up $2 million dollars. He cunningly begins to plant individual seeds of doubt within each man's head, ultimately turning them against one another. It appears one of the men is actually tied to the kidnapping. The story is told in a non-linear fashion, making it all the harder to figure out. If you enjoy piecing together events and bits of information, Suicide Kings is for you.
