‘s son is kidnapped and taken for ransom, his captors demanding millions of dollars or they will kill the child and expose the shady practices behind the airline he owns.   cries a lot as his wife while Gibson refuses to pay, instead becoming an action movie star because this, after all, is Hollywood. With characters about twelve sizes too thin and a main protagonist who is all pride and no heart, this is a dull action film that gets going real quick but never actually manages to be exciting.
