Is the last shot at the boss really a gimmick?

Danny's last shot reminds me of the rescue operation at the beginning of the movie. When the criminal was knocked to the ground Danny took the gun on the ground with trembling hands and pointed it at the criminal. I don't know why his hands are like this, maybe it's because the success of the event excites him, or maybe it's because the criminal kidnaps his daughter that makes him angry. The trembling hands express the inner contradiction and conflict. Until his friend said to him; are you ok? While taking his gun. The confrontation in the film is wonderful, the tense plot makes people constantly guess the development of the story, and it feels cool that the two sides negotiate with their own bargaining chips. The film also reflects the friendship and tacit understanding between Danny and Sabian as strangers. But all I can think about is the moment when Danny pointed the gun at the boss. His friend died because of him, and he himself had to take hostages because of his ignorance. When he raised his gun, his wife just arrived, but did not stop him. Maybe this is the trust between their husband and wife. I believe that Danny must have thought a lot in the end, and finally rationality defeated emotion. Maybe he's not afraid to squat, because he can be a brother. Maybe he's afraid to squat because of his wife! The law will definitely punish the boss, but it must not be solved by itself.

    Adapted from a real case, the theme of a professional film that is not out of the norm, even if it was filmed more than 20 years ago, it is not out of date now, and at the same time has an old-fashioned meticulousness. Completed the reversal of subject and object identities in screenwriting skills. A top "negotiation expert" was framed and framed as a suspect because of his involvement in the police force's corruption conspiracy. Various negotiation skills have become extremely difficult "criminals" to deal with. The designated unfamiliar negotiating opponents stage a battle between two heroes. The plot has always maintained the tension of suspense. The two story lines complement each other, the rhythm is tight, and the whole process is completed in one go, which is very enjoyable.
