We Have Your Husband
American-born Jayne Valseca (Teri Polo, Meet the Parents, Man Up), her husband Eduardo (Esai Morales, NYPD Blue), the son of a legendary Mexican newspaper publisher, and their two children live an idyllic life on their 1,000-acre ranch outside of a peaceful Mexico town. But in the summer of 2007, their lives are turned into a real-life nightmare when Eduardo is ambushed and kidnapped by strangers. With kidnapping a pervasive and lucrative business in Mexico, Jayne is at the mercy of the kidnappers when they demand millions for the husband's safe release and does everything possible to raise the money necessary to bring Eduardo back alive. As Eduardo is starved and tortured, he loses hope of ever seeing his family again. Despite the dire and bleak times, Jayne refuses to give up, decides to turn the tables on the kidnappers, and begins making demands of her own. The film is based on a true story from the book, We Have Your Husband: One Woman's Terrifying Story of a Kidnapping in Mexico.

The movie was convincing, well acted, and has a nice ending. I am happy they chose a Mexican looking man for the role of the husband, and Mexican looking kids for the role of the kids, although in real life the husband and the kids didn't look Mexican. The film does justice to the Mexican way of life. I am not sure how these people could have avoided being taken hostage considering where they lived. Obviously, they were on the radar of the 'humanitarian workers' that took them hostage; yes laugh 'humanitarian'. I am still surprised at the severe lack of modern forensics in Mexico, a country rated the 11th wealthiest country in the world as far as GDP, even if the wealth of the country is concentrated in a minuscule percentage of the population.
There were no public video cameras anywhere in the places where the culprits would send emails from? And there was no team of forensic experts to go through the car used for the abduction and identify as much of the data as they could? Surely their DNA was left all over the place. And the bank did not take the serial number of each bill and jotted them down for future identification? It surprises me that the perpetrators of this crime are still free. But apparently, the criminals were part of a team that operates internationally, possibly also in the USA. Tragically, the woman who endured this horror, died a few years later of cancer after returning to the United States.
In my list of good books that made bad movies this is in the top three.
I rated it a three one for effort and it beat a sharp stick in the eye which I rate two
