  • Critic Reviews of "Ransom"

    Chicago Tribune
    January 22, 2014

    The special nature of this story is its many climaxes that border on false endings and also how Gibson's character responds to the ransom demand of $2 million.... it is Gibson who sells us on it and sells it well.

    Washington Post
    January 22, 2014

    There are more climaxes in here than in a Swedish blue movie. This is not to say you won't be thrilled, charged up and put through the ringer at times, but your intelligence will need to be shoved under your seat like warm, flat soda.

    Philadelphia Inquirer
    January 22, 2014

    That's interesting stuff, but it doesn't play out with a lot of smarts. And the opportunity to end Ransom on a creepy note of unpredictability is forsaken for the usual glass-shattering, bullets-flying finale.

    Orlando Sentinel
    January 22, 2014

    With a mechanical movie like this, filmmakers -- male or female -- can't take chances. Howard and company are hostages to their own conception.

    Seattle Times
    January 22, 2014

    Mel Gibson and Rene Russo put an edgy 1990s spin on the roles originally played by Glenn Ford and Donna Reed.

    Wall Street Journal
    January 22, 2014

    By the time Tom Mullen has turned into an action superhero in a clumsy climax, Ransom has run out of ideas, and we've lost track of what we felt about a father's frantic efforts to save his son.

    Baltimore Sun
    January 22, 2014

    Howard directs for speed and force. The movie moves so quickly it yanks you by too many niggling doubts and the action scenes are so good that you wonder why Opie hasn't shown this much vicious pizazz before.

    Christian Science Monitor
    January 22, 2014

    Ron Howard has directed the action smoothly and efficiently, but be warned that there's a great deal of hard-hitting violence.

    People Magazine
    January 22, 2014

    A slick, slam-bang thriller about a business tycoon's frenzied efforts to get back his kidnapped son, Ransom is meant to divert and entertain. It does.

    TV Guide
    January 22, 2014

    As is often the case, the scumbags are far more interesting than the good guys.

    South Florida Sun-Sentinel
    January 22, 2014

    Ransom benefits handsomely from a story that remains compellingly believable, even as the plot twists become more baroque. Be warned, though, that Ransom is a violent film, with bloody shootouts that will not be easy to watch.

    Philadelphia Daily News
    January 22, 2014

    Ransom is more cleverly conceived than most run-of-the-mill Hollywood exploitation thrillers, and for a while appears headed to a memorable, richly ironic conclusion.
