One of the better live-action Disney films
6 April 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am a big fan of Disney and Kidnapped! is no exception. While dragging in spots, it is a rollicking good time and very faithful to the spirit of Robert Louis Stevenson's fine book. The costumes, cinematography and sets are typically splendid, and the score is very rousing. The story is exciting with plenty of cool and intelligent moments and also some energetic action sequences, the script is literate, the direction is solid and we are further treated to a brilliant performance from Peter Finch in one of those roles I will best remember him by. The support performances are equally impressive, in particular it was great to see a handsome Peter O'Toole. Overall, a fine adaptation and for me one of the better live-action Disney films. 9/10 Bethany Cox
