Disappointing film since you would normally expect some plot twists. Esai Morales of La Bamba fame spends most of the film in captivity. His Mexican father was supposed to be a wealthy newspaper person, but they claim not to be despite a nice sized bank account and a palace for a home.
William R. Moses of Perry Mason fame and a fixture on television films is relegated to a very small role as a person who will not help pay the ransom despite being good friends with the family.
A young federal agent moves in to help the American wife and children cope with the situation while trying to resolve the issue. The film merely becomes a cat and mouse situation where one side tries to out-do the other.
The ending is not all that thrilling and we come away that this is your typical kidnap situation without any frills attached.
