Audience Reviews for Kidnapped


Fun movie, but it doesn't live up to the expectations held from the Swiss Family Robinson. It spends too much time with the exposition and dialogue and never gets around to enough of the adventure. It certainly has some great moments and is by no means a bad adaption, but it fails to be anything more than a screen translation.

If you have trouble sleeping at night, don't waste your money on expensive sleep-inducing supplements. Just pop in this movie. I've been trying to finish it for years.
