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.

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.

Moviewatcher122's 2016 Film Diary: March (43 movies items)

"March 7 "If I don't get my son back and I mean real soon, you better kill yourself! By the time I'm done with you, you'll wish you'd never been born! I'll have your head on a fucking pike!" I'm normally not a fan of Ron Howard's work, but I really liked this movie. The story was very well-done, Gary Sinise was a great villain and Mel Gibson did a good job as the leading role even though it's not his best performance.
