Detective Jimmy Shaker:
We do what you say, and we go to the bank. Anything goes wrong, you're gonna turn around and I'll be gone. Okay.

This movie was quite enjoyable. Mel Gibson is a corporate father whose son is kidnapped for a ransom. Mel is an incredible actor - he has great emotional skill, his dialogue never sounds corny or hokey, and Gary Sinise is another fine actor with great skills. Together they make a movie definitely worth watching.
