    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.

I would recommend it merely for some good performances, but there's nothing new for the thriller genre that this movie has to offer.

    5/10.
