When their daughter is abducted and taken for ransom by a gang of serial kidnappers, a young doctor and his wife find themselves held hostage while a 24-hour plan to extort their money is set into motion. Now, with time running out and the health of their asthmatic daughter at serious risk, they find themselves in a life-and-death race against the clock as the "perfect crime" begins spiraling towards an unthinkable, terrifying and deadly conclusion.
Succinylcholine, also known as Suxamethonium chloride, is depolarizing neuromuscular blocker. It is rapid IV onset of less than minute and a duration of 5- 10 minutes in most individuals. It works to depolarize the nerve cells at the neuromuscular junction causing rapid flaccid paralysis which results in the user being unable to move and breath. Although this is portrayed accurately in the movie, there is no know antidote. Even if there could be one found, once the drug has had its effect of paralysis, the only way to have termination of effect is for the drug to be metabolized and for the body to recover in 5- 10 minutes (which before then would also require medical interventions to assist with breathing).

"Trapped", the top-of-the-heap video release for this week, tells of a a well to do couple whose daughter is kidnapped by a man who wants more than just money. What begins as a stylish thriller with good psychodramatic potential abandons the mind games at the half way point, trades nuances for sledge hammer blows, and disintegrates in a ball of Hollywoodish convoluted anything-for-the-thrill fire. Nonetheless, "Trapped" is probably worth a look for those who aren't too analytical and just want some no brainer excesses. (B-)
