Better Than Expected
13 August 2017 | by dariuslanghoffSee all my reviews

I have just finished watching this motion picture. And I have to say that the number of scathingly negative reviews tends to surprise me.

I start with a comparison and contrast, which I would have not thought before I would be willing to make now. There is this DUNKIRK across cinemas presently: a film critically acclaimed, lauded, appreciated, etc., and so on and so forth. And there is this TRAPPED CHILD.

The latter attracted my interest from start to finish never being boring - despite obvious flaws and imperfections. The former I found so unwatchably tedious - despite big budget production values - I turned it off after about 20 minutes. By the by, if I wish to learn history, I see a documentary, not a feature.

All in all, TRAPPED CHILD is an entertaining, optically attractive thriller (if only I knew where the scrapped 747 comes from - but that is a minor quibble).
