Even though Ron Howard doesn’t really have a good reputation, I still have a weak spot for his movies and I was definitely eager to check this one out. In my opinion, this movie is a typical Ron Howard feature. Indeed, it is quite entertaining, very well made, but there is definitely something missing to make it really remarkable.

Movie Reviews (551-600) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: Kidnap thriller that take some acceptable twists - but the highlight is the scene when Mel Gibson for the first time (but not the last!) turn the tables on the bad guys. Gary Sinise does a good job with what is a thankless and standard bad guy role. The Downs: It never feels like the kid is in danger - it could be that it is lousy acting by Nick Nolte's son or that the movie is afraid to go the final gruelling steps - but it is early apparent that the villains are afraid to be brutal"

“Even though Ron Howard doesn’t really have a good reputation, I still have a weak spot for his movies and I was definitely eager to check this one out. In my opinion, this movie is a typical Ron Howard feature. Indeed, it is quite entertaining, very well made, but there is definitely something missing to make it really remarkable. Indeed, the set-up was this time again pretty intriguing but the end-result was still rather bland. Back in those days, Mel Gibson was definitely on the A list and made more waves with his movies than with the antics in his private life. Rene Russo was also a very popular actress back then but, nowadays, she is pretty much retired which is too bad in my opinion. Like most of Howard’s features, there is a lot of good stuff here and, in my opinion, it is bette” read more

Almost a complete review of Ron Howard's work (21 movies items)

" Cast : Mel Gibson, Rene Russo, Gary Sinise, Delroy Lindo, Lili Taylor, Liev Schreiber, Donnie Wahlberg What was it about? When a rich man's son is kidnapped, he cooperates with the police at first but then tries a unique tactic against the criminals. My two cents: I thought it was a pretty entertaining thriller but it is basically a typical Ron Howard feature. Indeed, it is very well made, really fun to watch but there is definitely something missing to make it really rema"
