Trapped is better than you might expect. After all, it's an early 1970s TV movie starring James Brolin, so it doesn't exactly sound like an undiscovered masterpiece.
The story tells of a man who recovers consciousness following a mugging in the toilets of a large department store. When he comes round, the store is closed and he finds himself trapped overnight, having to evade the vicious doberman dogs that patrol the store.
It's a reasonably tense offering. Inevitably, the thinness of the story results in occasional tedious patches, but in fairness the film contains more than its fair share of taut moments. It's the kind of thing that could happen to anybody, so in many ways the audience is able to identify with the hero and place themselves in his position. I spent much of the film wondering how I would cope under the same circumstances. The scenes involving dog attacks are quite well filmed, without being too graphic or grisly.. I like this film.... it's definitely worth trying to catch.
