When her husband is kidnapped in a small South American country, Alice Bowman turns to Terry Thorne, a professional hostage negotiator, for help. --このテキストは、絶版本またはこのタイトルには設定されていない版型に関連付けられています。
Starting with this premise, Proof of Life follows just such a story in an enjoyable, if predictable, fashion. A civil engineer working in a third world country is kidnapped for ranson. A negotiator is sent to work with his wife, and ends up falling in love with her. Just to keep things interesting and not too easy, there are some hitches along the way (such as the negotiator leaves because it turns out the insurance premiums weren't paid).
Overall, this is a small novel that is by no means a literary masterpiece, but will provide a few hours of light entertainment and mindless reading on a Saturday afternoon. A short article in the front of the novel about the K&R industry is a nice bonus and helps with understanding how the story works.
I think however, that the movie was severly damaged by the "hollywood love drama' thrown in.It wasnt needed and wasted valuable space that could have launched this movie to a higher plateau with regards to the issue of kidnapping and their rescuers.
I ended up renting this movie and watching it twice over.The Technical Advisors did an outstanding job and Since it has been awhile since this was seen,I believe the TA's for the movie are/were working Hostage Negotiators/SAR operators.Salute guys.
You will see in the news this types of kidnappings and the behind the scenes work of Hostage Negotiators/SAR Team operators both civilian and Military-Law Enforcement more and more as terrorists do thier evil deeds in hopes of furthering thier warped view of humanity and political causes.From Mexico to Central-South America,SE Asia,Russia and her former states now in conflict,the entire Middle East and the Balkans...sadly this plaque and scourge to society is getting more popular day by day to terrorists. (esp.by those who adhere to that so-called "religion of Peace'which is nothing more then a large brainwashing Cult in my opinion...they havent stopped doing this since Lebanon and are currently monopolizing both terrorism,killing,maiming,torturing,bombing,and kidnapping the world over.They even relish doing the above to their own)
have a nice day.
