Mel as Mogul

Gibson's star power drives Ransom

The first-rate supporting cast includes Brawley Nolte as Mullen's terrified son, Delroy Lindo as the FBI agent in charge of the case, Lili Taylor as the most sullen of the kidnappers and Gary Sinise as a police detective who notices suspicious behavior in a convenience store. Sinise figures prominently in what might be called the third act of Ransom. This section of the film, while reasonably suspenseful, seems more than a little anticlimactic. Even so, it is never dull. Because even here, there's always the chance that Mel Gibson will reach an emotional meltdown at any moment.
