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.

So bad I couldn't stop watching
29 July 2018 | by grbjustSee all my reviews

This is the worst movie I've seen in a LONG time. It was SO bad that we thought at first it was a comedy, but it was made to be serious (we think). Anyway, don't waste your time.
