Not a bad reworking, but falls short
3 September 2019 | by popvoidSee all my reviews

As others have mentioned, Kidnapping Stella is indeed based on The Disappearance of Alice Creed, but this fact is clearly stated in the end credits if you bother to sit through them. It's NOT a full remake. Some important plot points have changed---in a few cases, dramatically. For the most part, these changes are improvements. They fill in plot holes and remove the more illogical aspects of the original story. They also raise the stakes in a few places, which helps ratchet up the tension. That said, I don't think it's a better movie. Both films are deeply flawed, but the original has the advantage of starring Gemma Arterton, which is a big plus. It also has Eddie Marsan who's one of the best at playing creepy characters. I give the original a slight edge, but only a slight edge. Kidnapping Stella is still worth watching. Just don't expect a classic.
