Storyline

Adriana is a 13-year-old girl from Mexico City whose kidnapping by sex traffickers sets in motion a desperate mission by her 17-year-old brother, Jorge, to save her. Trapped and terrified by an underground network of international thugs who earn millions exploiting their human cargo, Adriana's only friend and protector throughout her ordeal is Veronica, a young Polish woman tricked into the trade by the same criminal gang. As Jorge dodges immigration officers and incredible obstacles to track the girls' abductors, he meets Ray, a Texas cop whose own family loss to sex trafficking leads him to become an ally in the boy's quest. Fighting with courage and hard-tested faith, the characters of Trade negotiate their way through the unspeakable terrain of the sex trade "tunnels" between Mexico and the United States. From the barrios of Mexico City and the treacherous Rio Grande border, to a secret Internet sex slave auction and the final climactic confrontation at a stash house in suburban ...

Shamelessly manipulative and not engaging
21 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm still in shock at the high ratings this film is getting, but I guess it shouldn't surprise me.

It's awesome for the black-and-white hit-me-over-the-head crowd. All the expected cutaways, shots, and edits are here. Girl abducted...shot of bicycle turned over. Another girl abducted...shot of rose on pavement. Characters who say exactly what you want them to say...all the time. No surprises, suspense, or plot twists need apply. Just a vehicle for the self-righteous to vent their anger. What a bore.

Kevin Kline tries earnestly to float this picture past the point of credibility, but as good as his performance is --- it's the only really believably rendered thing in the picture --- it isn't good enough. The direction and production values are incredibly amateurish. I couldn't figure out why I was basically unmoved with the heinous acts that occur at the start of the picture and finally realized...they were just too dead on. There were no nuances beside what you might find in a substandard TV movie.

This is an important subject and it doesn't deserve the pop culture "Traffic"-style treatment that the drug trade got in THAT overrated mess. But this makes even that look original and interesting by comparison. Look, all movies manipulate your emotions, but this one is almost masturbatory by comparison.
