The film culminates in an armed mission to rescue the hostage. This climactic sequence is the epitome of suspense, and its realistic planning and operation would have put a smile even to Tom Clancy's face. Here, the filmmakers have produced a sensational outcome without resorting to sensationalism, and that has made all the difference.
The three lead characters share the load of carrying the film. Russell Crowe's character is a professional hostage negotiator, who travels the world arranging high-level, often dangerous, extractions. David Morse's character works as an engineer for humanitarian projects, and that involvement has taken him and his wife (Meg Ryan) to a country called Tecala in the South American highlands. This couple is situated in a mountainous area filled with cocaine farms and the criminals who run them--criminals who happen upon Morse, and see him as easy money.
Just prior to Morse's kidnapping, we're clued in to the loose ends in the Morse-Ryan marriage. Of course, these ends are left flapping by the unexpected and horrendous kidnap.
The way Morse portrays his character is appealing. He comes across as a decent, grounded man who's deeply committed to humanitarian work, but who's also nobody's fool. In the early part of the movie, I expected to also like Morse's wife (Ryan), but I didn't. Instead, Ryan's character seemed immature, inconsistent, and off balance. I knew the movie blurb had given away that the negotiator falls in love with the wife, so in the early parts, I often thought to myself: he falls in love with that??Read more ›
