  Gliding through the sort of role he can do in his sleep, Bruce Willis plays Jeff Talley, a guilt-ridden former hostage negotiator for the Los Angeles Police Department. Talley, the conflicted hero of the improbable action-drama " Hostage," loses his resolve when a negotiation goes bad. He leaves his LAPD job, separates from his wife (Serena Scott Thomas) and daughter (Rumer Willis, the star's real-life offspring), relocates to an upscale suburb and becomes a sheriff. But the peacefulness of Talley's new job comes to an end when delinquents invade an area home and threaten the family that lives there: a father and his two kids. Adding degrees of difficulty to Talley's rescue mission, the father is a shady accountant working for an even shadier employer. Various deadly agendas intersect, and in due course, Talley and his estranged loved ones are all at risk. Playing the numbers-cruncher whose house is under siege, comic-turned-character-actor Kevin Pollak (" A Few Good Men" ) does a decent job of mixing parental concern with amoral greed and an instinct for self-preservation. Ben Foster (TV's " Six Feet Under" ) is amusingly menacing as the snarling, psycho leader of the home invaders. Since Willis is in his comfort zone as a flawed man facing a life-defining challenge, "Hostage" isn't a total loss. Rather, it's one more so-so entry in the star's filmography.
