Storyline

On January 23, 2002, Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl is to fly from Karachi to Dubai with his pregnant wife, Mariane, also a reporter. On the day before, with great care, he has arranged an interview in a café with an Islamic fundamentalist cleric. When Danny doesn't return, Mariane initiates a search. Pakistani police, American embassy personnel, and the FBI examine witnesses, phone records, e-mails, and hard drives. Who has him? Where is he? There's also the why: because of U.S. abuse of prisoners at Guantanamo, because of a history of Journal cooperation with the CIA, because Pearl is a Jew? Through it all, Mariane is clearheaded, direct, and determined. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

more of a story for lifetime TV
28 February 2009 | by MLDinTNSee all my reviews

This movie did not have enough substance to deserve a theater release in my opinion. I could see this as A Lifetime TV movie of the week. The highlight was Anglina Jolie. She did a great acting job in this. Also I think the movie was released too long after the actual event. I didn't remember much about this case on the news. I just mainly remember a reporter was kidnapped and beheaded when demands weren't met. It should have been released maybe 3 years after the fact. And all the filler with the police tracing down leads was boring since you know they don't find Danny.

FINAL VERDICT: The only reason to watch this is if you really like Anglina Jolie.
