MARTIAL LAW Under the supervision of Ferdinand Marcos, September 1972. Marcos declared the Martial Law. When Martial Law was enacted, all of Ferdinand’s enemies in politics had been arrested. And in that time, the security in the country had been restricted. Martial Law is declared against the former Defense Secretary/Minister where at by now is a Senate. Martial Law has a mission, and it is to avoid harm from the communist. But in case of retrieving, the communist fight for they’re right.
And the more that they became strong because of they’re unity. There were so many innocent people died because if the fight between the government and the communist. There are several persons are accused that they are part of the Communist Party of the Philippines. Most of them died. Marcos wanted to have a new society through the Martial Law, and Marcos won because all Filipino’s are afraid with Marcos. This victory gives a lot of many good changes in the society, such as the good health and green environment, peaceful surroundings.
In the administration of Marcos, the program was enacted which is the “PLEDGES” that stands for Peace and order, Land Reform, Economic Development, Government reforms, Educational reforms, and Social services. This program has a good motive, but suddenly, this program is just only a promise. Only promise papers. His new society covered with worries and fear because of his one rule, to abide all of his rules without any doubt. Although he had a merry contribution, the corrupt money is merrier.
In the 21years of service, Marcos contributed the San Juanico Bridge, Cultural Center of the Philippines, Lung Center and Heart Center, Green Revolution, Land Reform, North Luzon and South Luzon Expressway. Some of Filipino says that the good has small amount because Marcos warn the government to maintain the low price of the goods. But more of his programs release some money just to give it to his friends and family. His family over-controlled the economy that’s why when he is fired, his family ruined the economy. Under the Martial Law, all of the senate degrades their right.
In the power of the Legislative, president was held. The negotiator is a 1998 action thriller film directed by F. Gary Gray, starring Samuel L. Jackson and Kevin Spacey. It takes place in Chicago and was released on July 9, 1998. The original music score was composed by Graeme Revell. Lieutenant Danny Roman (Samuel Jackson) is a top police hostage negotiator. He has a deserve reputation for being the best, although he is not without his detractors, such as commander Adam Beck (David Morse), head of a Hostage Barricade Terrorism (HBT) unit who thinks Roman takes too many chances.
Roman is middle-aged and recently married. He is approached by his colleague Nathan ‘Nate’ Roenick (Paul Guilfoyle) who warns him that large sums of money are being embezzled from Chicago Police Department’s disability fund, whose board Roman is on. Roenick has an informant, with whom he was at the Police Academy, and with whom he serve for a while, but Roenick refuses to name him. Roman suggests he go to Internal Affairs, but Nate thinks that inspector Neibaum might be involved as well.
Later that evening, Roman is summoned via his pager for another meeting with Roenick but instead finds him dead from gunshot wounds, seconds before patrol officers arrive. The case goes badly for Roman when it is assigned to Niebaum (J. T. Walsh) of the Internal Affairs Division (IAD), who Roenick claimed was involved in the embezzlement. Furthermore, the gun used to kill Roenick was one of the case involved in a case Roman handled in the past: two were not recovered but not the third.
A search warrant uncovered documents in Roman’s house that indicate the embezzled funds had been deposited in an offshore account, of which Roman denies any knowledge. Facing serious charges, suspended from the force and rejected by his friends and colleagues, including Roenick’s widow, a frustrated Roman storms into Niebaum’s office and, in the ensuing chaos, take Niebaum’s and several others hostage, including Niebaum’s administrative assistant Maggie (Siobhan Fallon), police commander Grant Frost (Ron Rifkin), and two-bit con man Rudy Timmons(Paul Giamatti).
With the building evacuated and placed under siege by police and the FBI, Roman issues his conditions, which include finding Roenick’s informant and summoning police Lt. Chris Sabian (Kevin Spacey), another top negotiator. Sabian, who has been trying rather unsuccessfully to negotiate peace between his sulking wife (Mary Page Keller) and cheeky daughter (Mulrooney), arrives on the scene. Roman and Sabian have only met once, briefly and know each other through reputation, but Roman wants Sabian because he is from another ide of the city, unconnected to the mentioned fund matter, and should be one of the people Roman can trust. Sabian soon find himself in a cat and a mouse duel with Roman and a dispute over authority between him, the local caps, and the feds, who disagree over jurisdiction and tactics. Roman of course know every trick in the book, and the besiegers are hard pressed to find out what is going on in the room with the hostages, since he blocks the entrances for ventilation units and destroys the security cameras and other surveillance devices.
To make things more complicated, Roman is convinced that “they” (his former colleagues) are out to kill him and it is hard for others (and viewers) to discern whether Roman’s belief is based on well-founded suspicious or groundless paranoia. While Sabian tries to come up with a solution, Roman, with the help of Timmons and Maggie, gets into Niebaum’s computer and discovers recordings of wiretaps, including with his last conversation with Roenick. He discovers that Roenick himself was the actual informant and has passed his evidence on to the IAD.
Niebaum admits that he investigated the embezzlement, but then took bribes from the fraudsters. Niebaum implicates many of Roman’s squad-mates in the conspiracy, but does not know who the ringleader is. Before he can reveal where he has hidden the evidence, Roman’s squad-mates (who overhead his confession) prematurely attack and kill Niebaum. When it becomes apparent that Sabian and the police have lost control of the situation, the FBI relieve Sabian and order a full-on assault. Sabian runs into the building to try to save Roman and the hostage.
Roman and Sabian argue over who fired first and struggle over a weapon, only to have Roman show Sabian that HBT team member, Scott, was not really shot another bluff to make everyone believe Roman could kill all the hostages. Sabian has come to believe Roman has a case and gives him a chance to prove his innocence. Prior to the impending FBI SWAT attack, he and Roman devise a plan. Roman is able to sneak out of the building during the assault by wearing a confiscated HBT uniform.
They proceed to Niebaum’s house, where they try to find the evidence, but are then attack by Frost, one of the former hostages, and three other members of Roman’s old squad who reveal themselves as the fraudsters and Roenick’s killers. In the course of the confrontation, Sabian suddenly shoots Roman and tells Frost that he just killed Roman, a cop, so he (Sabian) is now a dirty cop and then offers to destroy the evidence in return for the piece of the pie.
Frost agrees and effectively makes a full admission to his crimes, but when he leaves the house, he finds the area surrounded by police who have overheard his confession via Sabian’s radio that Roman had. Sabian had bluffed that he had killed Roman while Roman had actually broadcasted Sabian’s and Frost’s conversation. Humiliated, Frost attempt to shoot himself, but Beck quickly shoot his arm and the police seize him. Roman is now cleared and Sabian gives Roman his badge back and they part company with a new-found respect for each other.
