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.

Description: Mel Gibson plays a wealthy executive whose life is shattered when his young son is held for ransom, but the businessman takes matters into his own hands! A headstrong airline tycoon pays the ransom for his abducted son, despite the pleas of his wife and FBI agents, then must gamble on the consequences of attempting to turn the tables on the kidnapper, setting up a gut-wrenching confrontation between the anguished father and the increasingly desperate criminals. This tightly conceived nail-biter, with head-spinning plot twists, is another fine effort from the director of "Apollo 13." ... (more)

"Katsottu: 22.5.2015 nauhalta Ihan hyvä kidnappauselokuva. Tämä ei käynyt tylsäksi, vaikka yleensä tämän tapaisissa elokuvissa niin käy. "

"02.04.2015 Mel Gibsonin poika kidnapataan. Hän ei maksa lunnaita, vaan yrittää palkata palkkatappajia kidnappaajien perään. Nosoki oli oikeassa, tämä on varmaankin Ron Howardin tärkein ja paras elokuva."

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

"3.7. RON HOWARD MARATON Kukaan täysjärkinen ei laita päivän seitsemättä Ron Howardia pyörimään neljältä aamuyöstä kahtena perättäisenä päivänä... Paitsi, että tämä on koko Howard-maratonin ainoa elokuva, jonka halusin ihan oikeasti katsoa. Ensimmäinen tunti oli valitettavan tylsää menoa muistikuviini nähden, mutta sen jälkeen Gibson alkaa sekoilla, ja vetää muun muassa FBI-agentteja turpaan ja varastaa toimittajien autonavaimia sekä huutaa Gary Sinisen kan"
