Prisoner of Love [DVD] [1999]

Sterling has done a fine good job with the DVD of Prisoner of Love, giving it a picture that is clear and clean. The image is framed at an aspect ratio of 1.85:1, but is not anamorphic. Regardless, the picture quality suffers little, with only a few brief moments of shimmering. At times the picture does seem a little soft, but for the majority of the film, the image holds up very well. This disc has a four-channel surround soundtrack. Viewers of this disc, if using Dolby Digital, need to turn off the digital tuner and change it to Dolby Pro-Logic to get anything beyond a two-channel track. The sound on this disc is good, but certainly not what it could have been. As always, this disc only has Spanish subtitles. As for extras, along with the standard, but always appreciated biographies and filmographies, the disc has a wonderful commentary from writer/producer Lauren McLaughlin. She has interesting insight into the production of a smaller film and really seems to enjoy sharing this information. The disc is rounded off with a trailer.

Prisoner of Love
Supermodel Naomi Campbell stars in this thriller as Traci, a bartender who makes a date with a man, not knowing he's actually a small-time hood (played by Eric Thall). While waiting for him to pick her up for their date, Traci sees him committing a violent crime; the next day, her picture is on the front page of the newspaper as the only witness to the incident. The thug's boss orders Traci's executed, but he's grown fond enough of her that he can't bring himself to kill her. Instead, he kidnaps her and keeps her under lock and key, hoping to keep her safe as they wait for the incident to blow over so he can break away and start a new life -- hopefully with Traci at his side. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
