    Push it to the limit with Sean Connery in RANSOM, a riveting action-thriller where Nils Tahlvik (Connery), a tough-as-nails security chief, must save the British Ambassador from ruthless terrorists in a hijacked plane. Co-starring Ian McShane (Deadwood), this hidden gem takes us on an adventure to Scandinavia where stakes are sky-high.

    Tensions flare as a gang of ruthless hijackers led by Ray Petrie (Ian McShane, Deadwood) seize a British plane as it is landing in Scandinavia. Tough as nails Head of Security Nils Tahlvik (Academy Award winner® Sean Connery, The Untouchables, Goldfinger) is tasked with meeting demands from the terrorists, but is distracted by another simultaneous event - the British ambassador has been taken hostage in his own residence and held for ransom.
    With time running out and a string of life or death decisions to be made, it is up to Colonel Tahlvik and his team of expert soldiers to free the ambassador and ensure that no one falls victim to the diabolical demands of the enemy.
    Also known as The Terrorists, Ransom is an intelligent action/thriller in the gripping 1970s tradition of The Taking of Pelham One Two Three and Who Dares Wins.
