Proof of Life (2000) (C)
Release Date: November 3, 2009.
"A top-drawer adventure thriller with superb performances."
Jeffrey Lyons, WNBC-TV
Alice Bowman (Meg Ryan) is world-traveled and savvy, but nothing could prepare her for this. Rebels in a politically volatile Latin American country have kidnapped her husband for ransom. The asking price: $3 million. Russell Crowe plays Terry Thorne, the hostage retrieval expert who becomes Alice's only hope in navigating a high-stakes game where terrorists value money over life, in this suspense-packed film that was named one of the year's 10 best films by Time.
Taylor Hackford directs, steadily tightening the emotional vise as Terry and Alice try to smoke out the perpetrators and rescue Alice's husband (David Morse)... and as both confront the gnawing awareness that they're attracted to each other. Taut, thought-provoking and terrific, Proof of Life is gripping proof that the romantic thriller is forcefully alive. -- (C) Warner Bros, 2000, USA.
