Reviews

Thriller van Ridley Scott (Alien; Gladiator) naar het boek* van John Pearson. In 1973 wordt de 16-jarige kleinzoon en naamgenoot van oliemagnaat John Paul Getty (Christopher Plummer) in Italië ontvoerd. Getty weigert losgeld te betalen, maar stuurt wel zijn onderhandelaar (Mark Wahlberg), een ex-CIA-man, naar Italië, om de jongen te bevrijden. Pauls moeder Gail Harris (Michelle Williams) is wanhopig en besluit zelf te onderhandelen met de ontvoerders. De inmenging van de sensatiepers maakt de zaak nog ingewikkelder. De recensenten geven 3-4 sterren. André Waardenburg (NRC 9-1-'18) vindt dat het de regisseur niet echt bevredigend gelukt is om de leegte in het leven van Getty te duiden. Ab Zagt (Algemeen Dagblad 11-1-'18) concludeert: '(...) Ridley Scott maakt van dit waargebeurde drama een pakkende thriller met beklemmende vertolkingen van Williams en de oude Plummer. Niet alles is geslaagd, zeker de afloop niet, maar de film geeft wel een unieke inkijk in een bizarre ontvoeringszaak.'…Read more
