Impressive Adventure
31 July 2005 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

I remember being fairly disappointed with the early 1970s adaptation of KIDNAPPED starring Michael Caine . Perhaps the fact that I saw this three part TV series had everything to do with it ?

What I liked about this adaptation is that some thought seems to have gone into the story structure . Episode one introduces the characters then concentrates on Alan Breck and Davie Balfour being cornered on the boat which sets up a cliffhanger for episode two which sees them on the run in the Highlands being pursued setting up another cliffhanger episode for the final part where everything is resolved

It's certainly exciting epic stuff and I'm sorry that at least one reviewer on this page wasn't too happy with it . Iain Glen makes a flamboyant hero far better than Michael Caine was and perhaps my only criticism is that it's fairly obvious the locations resemble Middle Earth rather than the Scottish Highlands . A pity the production team felt the need to travel to the other side o the world to make this very Scottish drama
