Reviews
Mine: Good yarn. Well written and acted.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Gripping thriller about a ragged team of kidnappers who snatch the son of a self-made millionaire; soon, what should have been a standard kidnap-and-ransom transaction becomes a dangerous game of cat and mouse between the tycoon and the cocky ringleader. Plenty of twists and turns in this remake of the 1956 film of the same name. That's Nick Nolte's son as the victim. Coscenarist Richard Price appears briefly as Sinise's partner in an early scene.
