    Meg's weak, but god is Crowe great as always. I don't know if there is a better actor working. He saves this movie. Great turns are also given by David Morse, Pamela Reed, and David Caruso. Hackford gives a tense direction. Great cinematography, and music.

    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.

    It is one of those been there seen that type of movies, but it was exciting and naturally acted.There was some beautiful landscapes. It isn't memorable, however it is a good see.

    A sly get-the-husband-whoops-ive-already-fallen-for-another-guy flick. But it does it's part.

    I wasn't impressed or dissapointed. It showed the cruelty of those Guerilla camps. Unfortunately, all the negotating ultimately led up to a hollywood breakout scene. Luckily, that scenes is well done and exciting, and you get to see some well deserved revenge.

  1. An ambitious film that aims to examine the human equations behind the abductions. But for all its good intentions, it's not as subtle as it might be, and it's finally pitched too broadly to achieve the level of emotional truth it aims for.
  2. When it's dull, which it is too often for a kidnap caper, this movie is about a woman chirping ''notice anything new about my outfit?'' to a man whose idea of style is a jacket not crusted in human blood.

    This is half a good movie held hostage to the other, trashier half, and unfortunately for all of us, no rescue seems forthcoming.
