I have always liked this film and would gladly buy it on Blu. If only for David Caruso being his own signature brand of awesome!

Wanting this on blu pretty badly. Crowe kicks ass and is also serves as a solid drama. Good performances by all involved. Looks good on dvd... Would look a lot better in blu!

Update: PlayStation Movies has a correct 2.35:1 version.

Still holding out for this movie. I originally inaugurated it into my top 100 movies if only for the extraction scene alone. But I find the story compelling enough and the interactions between characters solid for what was only ever supposed to be a B-grade movie anyway. It gets a lot of unfair hate from people - namely for Ryan's performance and the trite relationship between her and her husband's saviour (Crowe). Honestly, it doesn't matter. This is a great movie that has a lot of potential depth to improve upon in a BD release. Some of those jungle shots would look amazing!

Hopefully Warner Archive adds this one to their release schedule soon. First LONE STAR, but then I'll take this one.

Definitely interested in seeing POF on Blu. I saw the old DVD years ago (now long OOP) & felt it was a great film, but have only seen it once. Excellent suspenseful movie, with a great cast.

I got a DM yesterday from Warner Archive saying they have no news to give about either a PROOF OF LIFE or LONE STAR release in the foreseeable future.

I purchased the iTunes download of this last night authoring it to Blu-ray and yes, the iTunes version is in 1.78:1, not in 2.35:1. So yeah, it is cropped, but only on the left and right sides and not very much as the top and bottom were opened up significantly. See below.

2001 DVD Release:


2019 Apple iTunes:


A few other things of note...
The DVD offers a DD 5.1 track in addition to a feature-length audio commentary by Director Taylor Hackford. There are some non-English speaking parts as well. They're burned-in though, not forced subs sadly. The iTunes version offers DD 2.0 audio only, no commentary track, and no subtitles for the non-English speaking parts.

That being said, I did carry over the DD 5.1 track and audio commentary (DD 2.0) from the DVD when authoring to Blu-ray. (An audio delay of -1000ms was required in order to sync the audio with the video.) As for the burned-in subtitles on the DVD, a couple minutes into the movie the line, "I understand" spoken in Russia is accompanied by a burned-in sub. Not sure what other burned-in subtitles there might be. I couldn't find them documented online. Perhaps at some point I'll go back and watch the DVD documenting what they are. The regular subtitle track needs some work anyway.

In any event, I just thought I'd chime in for those who have dismissed the iTunes download sight unseen. Yes, I'd prefer the original aspect ratio, but this is more than watchable until an actual Blu-ray is released. Looks to be a clean transfer. Well, what little I've seen of it so far. Will be watching this tonight. Looking forward to it.
