“Raucous pedal-to-the-metal thriller directed by the 80-year-old Ridley Scott with gleeful energy and riotous attack.”~Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
Aroview: Solid kidnapping thriller with a terrific performance by Michelle Williams as a mother who attempts to convince her aging oil tycoon ex-father-in-law (Christopher Plummer) to pay the ransom when her 16-year-old son is taken by a brutal organised crime ring.
A true story which occurred in 1973, made into a brilliant piece of entertainment by auteur Ridley Scott, one which questions the awkward confluence of money and love, and uncovers the grisly trend of kidnapping and ransom in the 1970's.
