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.

"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."

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"

"06.02.2010 * Second Time Watching This Film... "You kill him, you kill yourself, you motherfucker! GIVE ME BACK MY SON!" This is supposed to be a thrilling ride. For me this is just an ok movie, with some good actor-preferences! Not the best movie I've seen with Mel Gibson, but acctually not the worst either... "
