Plot summary

(2 votes)

Tom Mullen is a successful airline owner with a beautiful wife and a son. One afternoon when Mullen and his wife are attending an science fair, his son is kidnapped. In their frantic search they return home to get a phone call to tell them that their son has been kidnapped and the kidnappers want 2 million dollars. Tom tries to pay the money in a botched payoff attempt but starts to realise he probably wont get his son back if he merely pays the money and decides to offer the money as an reward to whomever helps him return his son. The film continues as a cat and mouse game between Tom and the kidnapper.

Visible crew/equipment: In the early scene, when Mel Gibson is talking to his son, a boom mic can be seen at the top of the screen. (Boom mics drop in several times throughout the film.)

Trivia: During filming, Mel Gibson had to have his appendix removed - that's one reason why he looks so pained throughout the movie.
