I was interested all through the movie--interested, but not riveted.

The movie's impressive look cannot fully compensate for the uneven and partially involving nature of the overall story.

The trouble with Proof of Life is that this high stakes crisis -- in real life -- probably causes more personal stress and conflict than we saw.

It's the same old story, a fight for love and glory, except that time goes by . . . slowwwwly.

Story's backdrop is interesting and relevant, but nearly everything that has been placed in the foreground is hackneyed and lacking in imagination.

The story ... is far less exciting than the gossip generated during the film's production.

Messy plotting, contextless direction, superfluous characters, often inept acting, and zero chemistry between its leads.

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.
