A stunning performance by Mel Gibson (Braveheart) adds to the heart-pounding intensity of RANSOM...the explosive thriller that critics called one of the best films of 1996. Its a parents 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 - The Thomas Crown Affair) agree to deliver a multimillion-dollar ransom to the kidnappers. But after the exchange erupts in a hail of gunfire, Mullen takes one final risk to ensure his childs safety and goes on national television with a shocking proposal. Its a gamble that could cost him his marriage...as well as the life of his son. Acclaimed director Ron Howard (Apollo 13) delivers one surprising plot twist after another in a riveting thriller that will leave you breathless.
