This is an entertaining and quite suspenseful film, wth a terrific supporting cast that includes Rene Russo as Gibson's wife, Gary Senise as a duplicitous local cop, and Mark Wahlberg as one of the kidnappers. The plot takes some interesting twists and turns, and although it is nt predictable, all works out quite well in the end. Or does it. In order to see, you'll just have to watch this very well made suspense thriller for yourself. Enjoy!
I liked this film a lot because it touched my emotions in the way a thriller of this type should. Nail bitingly good, it's one of Gibson and Howard's best works.
The casting for the film is truly excellent, and Gary Sinese is superlative in his role as the policeman-turned-villian. Outstanding story line! The ending of the film was very well done, and will satisfy the viewers who believe that in dealing with criminals who harm children, "what goes around MUST come around!" This was lacking in Glenn Ford's original version of the story, where there was no visible accountability for the criminals' actions. Of particular dramatic value is the believability of the inevitable conflict between Gibson and his wife, well-portrayed by Rene Russo, when Gibson announces on the media that he will not meet the kidnappers' demands, and that between Gibson and the public in general.
While being very violent in places, this film has a welcome place among my favorite dramas, and is well worth owning.
A must see if you enjoy suspense/crime thrillers.
