Kidnapped is based on the novel by Robert Louis Stevenson and has been made several times. This Disney version is excellent.
David Balfur's uncle arranges for him to be kidnapped and is taken aboard a ship but gets shipwrecked along the way but eventually manages to get back to Scotland after teaming up with adventurer Alan Breack Stuart. The journey takes them across the Scottish Highlands and face dangers along the way including soldiers in Redcoats.
This movie is shot on location in the Scottish Highlands and contains some great scenery.
The cast includes James MacArther, Peter Finch, Benard Lee (before his role as M in the James Bond movies), John Laurie (Private Frazer from Dad's Army), Finlay Currie, Nial MacGinnis and Peter O'Toole (Lawrence of Arabia). Excellent parts from all.
Watching Kidnapped is an ideal way to spend an hour and a half one afternoon. Excellent.
Rating: 3 and a half stars out of 5.
