Storyline

It's "TAKEN" with girls when two California College students are kidnapped by a vicious cartel led by a former INTERPOL agent while on vacation in Mexico. Jenna, a foreign exchange student from South Africa with milita-member parents, and Lyndsey, the spoiled daughter of a wealthy banker, find themselves at the mercy of a former Interpol Agent from the United States now living in Mexico and his vicious adopted son. After a deal for their freedom goes bad, Jenna uses the skills she learned from growing up in South Africa to break her and Lyndsey free, leaving a trail of cartel bodies behind them in the process.

No animals were harmed in the making of this film. In fact, you'd say a large Siamese Cat worked on the Post-production team. See more »

Don't Believe The Glowing reviews!

Don't believe the glowing reviews!

This is definitely a B movie at best. The acting is mostly awful, sound is poor at times, the lack of budget is also apparent and the plot is formulaic and unbelievable.

The only plus I'll give it is there is a reasonable amount of action action ( +1) and it moves along at a good pace (+1). Otherwise, save your time as there are so many better movies out there.
