Had Promise To Be A Good TV Movie
23 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Taken Away is a Lifetime TV movie about a politician's daughter whose daughter was given away for adoption to avoid hurting his father's political career during an election year.Upon realizing that she needs her daughter to become a big part of her life,she starts to take some actions in order to recover her from her adoptive parents.

It had a great promise to be a good TV movie.Too bad that the screenplay had to go through lots of contrivances and melodrama that the story became unrealistic as it was being told.The characters also lack coherence and consistency.The viewers will probably be confused in understanding them.Apparently,the characters involved simply had to undergo unexplained transformations and development in order to meet the needs of the story.Finally,the conclusion simply would not appeal the intelligent viewer as it simply went through the needed happy ending.
