A Good Low Budget Action Movie in Exotic Places
7 July 2003 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dr. Richard Avery (Ed Quinn) is a recently widowed doctor who decides to get his son Sam with him to a medical seminar in India. He believes that he will have a chance to get closer to the young boy. There, during his presentation, the boy is kidnapped from the audience. Two cops (the Indian cop Kumar and the American cop Julia Hyde (Joey Lauren Adams)) will try to help him. The only means of contacting the kidnapper is through a beeper. Dr. Avery will lose the beeper and will look for help with the drug dealer Zolo (Harvey Keitel). This is a low budget movie. However, this plot in the hands of a better director and cast would lead to a great movie. The screenplay is very interesting and keeps the attention of the viewer until the last scene. There is no 'clichés' in the story and you will be certainly interested to know what will happen next. Unfortunately one of the main characters (the young boy Sam) has a terrible acting. It deserved a best actor child in this important role. Harvey Keitel has a big belly in the present and had much better acting than that in the past. I like Harvey Keitel, but in this movie, him, together with some Indian actors, disappoints the viewers. Another comment: is it common in India to have a foreigner cop in their police force? In this movie, Joey Lauren Adams is an American cop in an Indian police department and I found this situation very unusual. In the end, I liked this movie and I believe that fans of action and exotic places will have a good entertainment. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "O Sequestro de Sam" ("The Abduction of Sam")
