It was a really good movie.
12 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw the movie Abducted:A Father's Love and I thought it was a good movie and I kinda felt bad for his character and didn't go to prison for kidnapping his daughter.He was very good at hiding from the law and made sure he wasn't caught and when the policeman saw him in the store and ran after him and he was running and I was 'like run,run get out of there'.I really felt bad for the little girl because the mother wasn't caring for her and Larry Coaster(Chris Noth) was the only one who really cared for the baby.I think he did the right thing to get the baby from her mother and take her and be on the run to get help from those women for Mother's who women go to so they can get away from their abusive husbands.
