Product Description:

A headstrong airline tycoon pays the ransom for his abducted son, despite the pleas of his wife and FBI agents, then must gamble on the consequences of attempting to turn the tables on the kidnapper, setting up a gut-wrenching confrontation between the anguished father and the increasingly desperate criminals. This tightly conceived nail-biter, with head-spinning plot twists, is another fine effort from the director of "Apollo 13."

Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:

Ransom Special Edition
In this action-thriller, Academy Award(R)-winning superstar Mel Gibson (Best Director, BRAVEHEART, 1995) is Tom Mullen, a wealthy executive whose charmed life is suddenly shattered when his young son is abducted and held for ransom by a gang of ruthless criminals! That's when Mullen defies the experts and takes matters into his own hands ... boldly turning the tables on the kidnappers in a last-chance effort to rescue the boy! A critically acclaimed smash from Academy Award(R)-winning director Ron Howard (A BEAUTIFUL MIND, 2001) that features Rene Russo (THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR) and Gary Sinise (THE HUMAN STAIN) in an excellent supporting cast -- you'll find RANSOM pays off big with unpredictable twists and unstoppable excitement!
