    An intense performance by Mel Gibson adds to the heart-pounding intensity of Ransom. It`s a parent`s worst nightmare for business tycoon Tom Mullen (Gibson) as he gazes at a picture of his kidnapped son helplessly bound and gagged. To get his boy back, Mullen and his wife (Rene Russo) agree to deliver a multi-million dollar ransom to the kidnappers. But after the exchange erupts in a hail of gunfire, Mullen takes one final risk to ensure his child`s safety and goes on national television with a shocking proposal. It`s a gamble that could cost him his marriage, as well as the life of his son. Director Ron Howard delivers one surprising plot twist after another in a riveting thriller that will leave you breathless.

    Ransom is a great crime thriller. An amazing movie. The DVD is great too, there`s a director`s commentary featurettes and a few other things. Overall 9/10.
