Young man returns home after some time in a rehab/foster home. Partly because as a child he witnessed his father's suicide and his mother had problems. He finds out the girl he's had a crush on since before he went away has a boyfriend and he flips and kidnaps her.
The movie is only mildly interesting. The main reason is that there is nothing special about it; nothing that stands out. Most people have seen this type of movie before and probably better versions. So unless there is a new twist, some clever writing, great suspense and cast, there is no point unless you have nothing better to do (my excuse). In short, the movie is an uneventful walk through the park; a "TV level" or kind of movie and is where it should be viewed. Love, Boloxxxi.
