Movie Review by Movie Addict
January 19th, 2008

I am not terrorized.

If Angelina Jolie never does another film, this will stand as a lasting tribute to her greatness. It was not only a fantastic story of the kidnapping and murder of Daniel Pearl, but a tribute to the strength of his wife, Mariane, played so beautifully by Jolie.

There are two things that really impressed me about this film other than Ms. Jolie.

First, the scenes in Karachi, Pakistan. One cannot imagine the effort the police had in finding anyone in a city that is stretched out over 3500 square kilometers. It is like finding a needle in a haystack, and, unless you see it, you cannot comprehend it. Irfan Khan (The Warrior) was excellent as the Captain that kept after the terrorists.

The other thing that was woven throughout the film was the hate in the world for those who are different. Not only was the anti-American feeling strong, but also the Pakistani-Indian conflict as they lived in Karachi with and Indian journalist (the lovely Archie Panjabi from A Constant Gardener).

A beautiful film and a great story.
