    It's Rambo with a split hero -- Morse absorbing punishment and Crowe wreaking vengeance.
  2. 25
    A hostage drama without any tension. It is a love story without any heat. It is as curiously empty a movie as we've seen all year.
  3. A hostage drama that oscillates between soap opera and action flick.
  4. Proof of Life kidnaps the audience, then tortures it to a slow death
  5. Proof of Life isn't a movie. It's an overpriced scrapbook.

    This movie sucks in every single way, despite the racist message that want to show Colombia as a dangerous country, the plot sucks. Its a waste of time and if u intend to buy, please don't do it! Full Review »

    Guilty pleasure movie. Russell Crowe makes it worth watching, this is Meg Ryan on the cusp of weird cosmetic procedures, before she became cringe-worthy. Full Review »
