Equal parts suspense thriller, unrequited love story, case study of what binds a marriage, and paramilitary dark op shoot-em-up.
Top Critic

Well directed, superbly acted, full of conflicting emotions and has subtle psychological shifts in loyalties.

As an adventure, Proof of Life is straightforward and gripping.
