Movie Info

Sean Connery stars in Caspar Wrede's hostage melodrama, featuring lustrous cinematography by Sven Nykvist. A group of terrorists hijack an airplane and hold the passengers at bay until political prisoners are released. Sent in to stop them is Scandinavian government agent Nils Tahlvik (Sean Connery). The ensuing battle-of-wills gives the terrorists the edge. But when they try to make it out of the country, Nils is after them in hot pursuit. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Ransom (The Terrorists)

All Critics (4)

A typical action yarn about political terrorism that got waylaid by an intricate plot line that never quite made sense.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Tenso e inteligente, o filme cria um clima constante de suspense e nos envolve em uma trama repleta de reviravoltas que traz Connery como um sujeito perspicaz e absolutamente determinado a vencer o confronto com os terroristas.

Audience Reviews for Ransom (The Terrorists)

½

Surprisingly bland and unexciting, even Sean Connery can't breathe enough life into it. It has some great cinematography though, the story just lacks interest.

Bored does not even begin to describe how I felt 10 minutes into this movie. Other than a few (and I stress FEW) action sequences and a semi-interesting twist, this is a forgettable flick, even with Connery.
