Saw this on 11/12/15
Full of plot holes, for instance the film fails to clearly say why the kidnapper would take the money and still not return the victim, you can say that he is a psycho, but then again, how did he manage to convince his accomplices about this in the first place? and if you say that they somehow managed to agree with him, then why did one of them hesitate to kill the victim when all opportunities were present, conscience? Regardless of all that, Mel Gibson and Rene Russo manage to turn in believable performances. Howard directs with flare and tense sequences until the obvious 'bullets flying', 'glass shattering' climax which could have been easily substituted with a better one I believe. The film doesn't bore and it's a good one time watch.
the one issue I had with the movie is the legality of someone going on TV and putting a $2 million bounty on someone's head, dead or alive (2 viewings)
