The title says it all, so it's hardly a spoiler to know this film centers around an abduction. Add the CIA, some "Serbian" guys (why do they always make Serbians sound Bulgarian or...Irish? Strange), and a couple of kids, and you get? A very dull film with some flatline acting from the male lead. Really, he was shocking. And his 15yo costar managed to keep a ton of makeup on even after falling in a river. Kudos on that.
The most amazing thing about this film was that they got Sigourney Weaver. Wow, bet she regrets that! Anyway. To surmise: awful script, terrible acting (apart from mum and dad), done-to-death storyline and a lead who has the same charisma as a lump of wood.
It's lucky to get 2 stars, and that's more because I think my mood has been swung by the really yummy apple I was eating whilst watching it (thus stopping me from slipping into a coma)
