A Mess of a Thriller
2 August 2017 | by BigZ_7337See all my reviews

This is a pretty bad film that can be enjoyed at times. It's incredibly one note, with almost the whole movie being Halle Berry chasing after white trash kidnappers in her mini-van. Having a mom chase after people that kidnapped her kid is an interesting idea, but I just needed more from the movie. It was also very sloppily filmed and edited, even when the car chases or fight scenes were starting to be enjoyable. Kidnap is not a good film, but at the same time it's not bad enough to be enjoyable in that way. Perhaps it's a side effect of being in limbo for so long when the studio that made it collapsed, but it feels like the movie could have been better.

I definitely wouldn't recommend it, but if you see it randomly some time on TV in the future, you could have a little bit of fun with it. If you want to see my full video review you can check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RYQlLhnzpM0
