Grab the release cable with a pair of channel lock pliers to pull it open. Lubricate all release mechanism including the release lever, that will easy the release lever.

Have you tried having a helper push down on the hood over the latch to relieve the spring tension on the latch while you try to pull the hood release, this often does the trick. Also are you sure the cable is connected, do you fell tension on the hood release handle when you pull it?

You will need access from under neath front and reach up to latch - use a screw driver and pop release.
