Factual errors: Near the end of the movie, when Lorraine's character is holding the shotgun on Roy right after the car wreck, she fires the gun once over Roy's head, then pumps the shotgun, but no empty shell is ejected, which is impossible. Worse yet, she delivers another line of dialogue and then pumps the shotgun a second time without having fired it again and, once more, no shell is ejected. Roy would have known the gun was empty.See more »

Not as bad as some make out, 23 February 2015
Author: bowmanblue from United Kingdom

Just before I wrote this review, I looked up Carjacked on IMDb and happened to notice some of the reviews on there. Pretty much all of them gave it 1/10! Now, I'm not going to say that Carjacked is a classic or that it offers anything that you haven't really seen before, but I would stress that it's a lot better than a 1/10.

Single mother Maria Bello stops off for petrol (or 'gas' as they say in America) and gets carjacked by Stephen Dorff, taking her and her son hostage. What follows is basically a 'cat and mouse' sort of situation where she tries to protect her son and/or escape at the same time.

There you have it - nothing new. However, it's still not as bad as a 1/10. All three lead actors play their parts well. Special mention to Stephen Dorff who flits between charming and psychotic quite nicely. Mario Bello does her best to escape, but, as is pointed out at the beginning of the film, has a history of doing the wrong thing at the wrong time, so that kind of excuses some of her subsequent bad decisions she makes throughout the rest of the movie. Even the kid, who is naturally squeaky clean, is actually not totally unlikeable and annoying (like most kids in films).

So, there you have it, nothing new, but nothing bad. Although I probably wouldn't watch it again any time soon, it kept me entertained for an hour and a half.
