In the US, a child goes missing every 40 seconds. You never think it will happen to you. Until it does. Alone and scared, Karla Dyson (Halle Berry) is unwilling to leave the fate of her son's life in someone else's hands. When she catches a glimpse of the abductors speeding away, she decides to fight back. In a heart pounding race against time, Karla begins a high speed pursuit and will stop at nothing to save her son's life.Written by
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
