Ransom has been sitting in my Netflix queue for sometime. I liked it. Good premise and handled well. It also has a great cast and yes that includes Mel Gibson. Sure he may be a douchebag in real life, but I could care less. He’s still a good actor and director and he’s real life shenanigans doesn’t prevent me from enjoying his movies. I don’t plan on boycott anything new he does either. If I started doing that I wouldn’t be watching any movies, because let’s be honest here with the number of people involved in making a film a couple have to be assholes.
So yes it is a great movie from the 90s and one I hadn’t heard of until I found it on Netflix.
