Saw this when it first came out thought it was great . Watched it again and it is still a great thriller. Great acting from the main actors in the film, and a good original story of kiddnapping a rich family's son and hold him for ransom. Good twists and turns and great story. Worth watching if you haven't seen it.
Everything about it is good. The plot is original, not the ransom of a rich man's son but the twists and turns following this. Mel's acting is good, few could transfer the agony so strongly to the viewer. There are several sub-plots each compelling. The bad guy is so well played you cannot stop yourself hating him. Utterly captivating.
