Alexander Ignon’s script for the most part strings together kind banalities and awkward exchange. In spite of the fact that the story takes too long to get wrenched up, once it does it’s loaded with exuberant activity and turns, organized well by veteran B-film executive Jim Gillespie (“Joyride,” “I Know What You Did Last Summer”).
What’s more, even at its stiffest, “Billionaire Ransom” has some beautiful wild footage, loaded with pleasant looking, multi-ethnic youngsters. Without a doubt, they’re all shaking weapons and crossbows and battling to stay alive. Be that as it may, aside from that, they give off an impression of being having a superb time.
