This movie based on true events of 1973 was much in the news just before release due to the reported charge of sexual harassment on actor Kevin Spacy who had a major role as the grandfather in the film. The producers were in a fix and after much consideration they decided to reshoot most of Kevin's scenes with replacement actor Christopher Plummer. It is leant also that some scenes were digitally modified.
The plot is about the kidnapping of teenaged Paulo the grandson of multimillionaire Paul Getty ( Christopher Plummer) by a gang of criminals in Italy. When asked for ransom of 17 million dollars, Getty tells the press that he is unwilling to pay up because he has 14 grandchildren and if he pays once he will have 14 kidnapped grandchildren. Getty then calls for investigater Mark Wahlberg to mediate with the kidnappers and get his grandson back. He admits that the kidnapped child is his favourite grandson and he would like to rescue him unharmed.Meanwhile the kidnappers have also contacted the boy's mother Michelle Williams and have pressurized her to convince her father in law to pay up.
Veteran Director Ridley Scott has made a good thriller which keeps the tempo going. The tension builds up admirably.He is helped with some good photography.Not exactly an edge of the seat thriller but the suspense however keeps you hooked throughout. Christopher Plummer seems to be the perfect choice to play the ageing filthy rich multimillionaire grandfather and he turns in a good performance. Known at that time as the richest man in the world at one point he says that if he can count his money he is not a multimillionaire. Michelle Williams is fairly adequate as the mother. Mark Wahlberg acts well as the investigater employed by Getty to deal with the kidnappers. The photography and editing are first rate.
