The manner in which this film flies completely off the rails is undoubtedly amusing, but its also disappointing, considering the fair competence of all that came before.

I don't mind admitting that the movie, for me, became about Courtney Love. That's the effect she has...

Nada poderia preparar o público para o caos que toma conta da produção em seu ato final, que, aparentemente, foi escrito enquanto o roteirista encontrava-se bêbado.

It comes off as so silly that you wouldn't be surprised if BA, Murdock and rest of the A-Team were seen giving chase in a black and red van.

I'm half-convinced it's a very poker-faced comedy. Then again, I may be giving the filmmakers way too much credit.

'Es en verdad una pena que Mandoki esté realizando cintas tan malas desde hace algún tiempo, pues talento tiene, pero quién sabe dónde lo tiene escondido.'

A sleazy, exploitative thriller that milks its child-in-danger premise for all it's worth.

What started out as a taut contest of wills between Bacon and Theron, deteriorates into a protracted and borderline silly chase sequence.

Brisk hack job.

The movie is so contrived, nonsensical and formulaic that, come to think of it, the day-old shelf would be a more appropriate location to store it.

There are individual scenes that pack a real punch, but they are usually followed by something pretty heavy-handed or over-the-top.

Trapped presents a frightening and compelling 'What if?' scenario that will give most parents pause. . . . Then, something terrible happens.

Another disposable kidnapping thriller.

Adapting his novel 24 Hours, first-time screenwriter Greg Iles has neglected to include in his plotting a sense of impending doom, a lack of purpose that isn't helped by the arid filmmaking style of director Luis Mandoki.

The movie is a negligible work of manipulation, an exploitation piece doing its usual worst to guilt-trip parents.
