(Review originally written at 16 February 2005)

"Ransom!" is a thriller that will bring you to the edge of your seat thanks to some realistic character played by some most excellent actors and some strong dialog.
The movie only focuses on the family and we never get to know the kidnapper(s). Because of this we the audience will be able to feel related to the family with all their sorrows, emotions and uncertainties. The movie has a realistic feel, also thanks to some very good actors (Glenn Ford and Leslie Nielsen in particular)

Fun fact: This was Leslie Nielsen's first movie role and what a debut it was! Too bad he wasted his own career...

It is a very recommendable thriller to watch that is tense from start to finish and filled with uncertainties. In my opinion far more superior then the better known Mel Gibson remake.
