Movie Reviews

An Excellent Film Noir, Full of Suprises
David Slausen | New York, NY | 08/26/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

""The Proposal" is an intelligent, first-rate undercover police story with a lot of twists and turns that you can never see coming. The Director has a real knack for building tension and suspense... it keeps increasing as the story progresses, and the mystery deepens as it unfolds. Jennifer Esposito really proves that she can play the leading role in a feature... she's radiant, and Nick Moran (from "Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels") plays the nervous, paranoid undercover cop to perfection. Stephen Lang (Tombstone) is awesome as the subtly psychotic Crime lord, and it's nice to see William B. Davis (X-files' Smoking Man) play an FBI agent who DOESN'T smoke! Very clever, unpredictable, good looking film noir. Highly recommended."
Great characters, Well-written script
M. Johnson | Irvine, CA USA | 04/21/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The Proposal is a detective story that takes a familiar storyline and gives it a few interesting twists. Good characters and great script make this a worthy film to see.The story is about an undercover detective (Moran) who leads a paranoid existence, constantly vigilant against being found out for who he really is. In order to keep his cover intact, he reluctantly accepts a new partner (Esposito) who apparently has no undercover training and whose inexperience may eventually place his life in jeopardy.The Proposal takes you into the personal life of a detective who has been "under" for several months to infiltrate a crime organization and shows the great lengths he must go through to establish his identity while at the same time watch his own back.The film's antagonist, Simon Bacig (Lang) is great. He is a villain's villain who plays dangerous, eccentric, and vain - all without going "over the top".Great direction and script give this movie dimension and depth that allow you to get in touch with the characters and keep you hooked as you await the final outcome (which I guarantee, you won't be able to guess)."
You will be fooled!
Rodney Powell | Macon,Georgia | 05/20/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This was clever thriller about a undercover cop sent in to take a ruthless mobster only to find out that to keep his cover he must have a wife in short notice! He gets a rookie policewoman to pose as his wife and she becomes object of desire of the same gangster she is sent in to nail.This film's script writers took pains to sent up movie up with lots of suspense as our hero must try to keep his cover and trust his new partner with his case and his life.The script writers also give us one dandy final twist at the end that fooled me and will fool you too!"
Stepping Stone
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Very entertaining movie. This should be a stepping stone for Jennifer Esposito for bigger projects. I would be surprised if she doesn't breakout after this. Outstanding job by directer and cast. Seems like a much higher budget movie than it actually was."
