Trivia

Originally, the script called for the character of Abby to be diabetic, but Panic Room (2002) also featured a little girl with juvenile diabetes, and as it was to be released first, so Abby was changed to an asthmatic instead. See more »

It was the perfect plan...to get your money.
24 December 2002 | by =G=See all my reviews

"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-)
