A Ridley Scott film that focuses on the real life events of the powerful J P Getty and how he's grandson get's kidnapped. The devoted mother does everything in her right to convince JP Getty to pay the ransom to free her son. Getty was a proud man and refused to be taken lightly even if family was on the line when it comes to his riches. A great cast of Mark Wahlberg who plays "Fletcher Chase" Getty's CIA spy and Michelle Williams who's the determined mother Gail Harris who refused to be bought by Getty's wealth.
The original casting of JP Getty was changed in the last few months due to controversial scandal surrounding Kevin Spacey as he was axed from the film and replaced by Christopher Plummer who i felt did a great job and to be honest i didnt noticed any dip in the quality of this story. Having said that i would have loved the original casting as i do like the way Spacey gets into character in his films.
