I usually enjoy TV movies but there is no reason why this movie should have ever been made. When I say something like this, it can only mean that it is terrible.
The plot might have been good if it would have included some acting. Not to mention that it would have even been better if the movie was cut in half. Bateman's character becomes useless and irritating during the second part of the film. It's the same old story: she can't escape the kidnapping. I can't even remember who played who, so I'm just going to use the character descriptions. Robin's boyfriend is okay. His acting is decent, but the character really has no purpose. Of course he is needed because the beginning starts out as a camping trip for the couple. But once Robin is kidnapped, the character slowly fades away and he has no effect on the story. The kidnapper, ol' what's-his-name, is the worst kidnapper I have ever seen on a film. He conveniently leaves Robin alone numerous times, brings his wife or fiance and her kids along for the ride, and makes the dumbest requests. The police called in are played terribly and everyone else involved make this film awful.
This movie would never end! It went on and on and nothing happened. Robin couldn't seem to be saved and that's what it was focused on. It was pretty boring watching the helpless camper fight for her life with a kidnapper she could have easily beat up.
The writing was once again, dumb. Like I said, the kidnapper is made to look like a fool mainly by what he says. The rest of the cast doesn't improve this either. The more I think about it, there wasn't a whole lot of writing period. Mostly useless actions taking up mine and everyone else's time.
This is one of the worst TV movies ever made. While Lifetime is pretty popular for showing good movies, this one was definitely a let down. There was no use in making this.
