Entertainment Reviews:

Sight and Sound - 07/??/1998
"...[MAD CITY] delights in effective reversals....Darkly humourous..."
New York Times - 11/07/1997
"...Mr. Costa-Gavras, a galvanizing filmmaker working with a splendid cast, is able to tell this story in style....There's a cool, crafty performance from Dustin Hoffman..."

Product Description:

When a recently fired museum guard files a grievance with his boss by menacing her with a shotgun and ends up with a gaggle of schoolkid hostages, it seems like the perfect opportunity for a has-been news anchor to revive his flagging career. Indeed, the ratings soar, with the newsman inflating the standoff and priming his slow-witted star for the limelight.
