Fantastic!
29 October 2004 | by (KANSAS) – See all my reviews

When Dr. Richard Avery's son is kidnapped while attending a professional convention in India, he must endure a 24 hour nightmare. Supplied with a beeper containing a text display through which instructions are sent, a desperate Avery is ordered on a wild and dangerous journey in a foreign land.

This is the basic set up of Beeper, but get ready for a jet ride because Beeper is non stop thrills and action. Just think, what would you do if someone you loved was kidnapped? Scary as heck, but it happens all the time in foreign countries. And all people can do is hope and pray, unless you're brave like Dr. Avery. He's a kick ass hero! Check this film out!
