critics consensus

With its plot about child kidnapping and endangerment, Trapped is an exploitative thriller, more queasy than suspenseful. Read critic reviews

    Really boring and poorly written. Other than the decent cast, this film is completely plain and not noteworthy in any way.

    Well acted, well casted thriller about a kidnapping of a little girl that was carried out more creatively than most. The movie immediately draws you into it and you feel almost feel like you are in it. Bacon was fantastic as the bad guy coupled with a very good performance by Theron.

    Have seen this film more then once. Its a good film but one only needs to see it once/ A very young Dakota Fanning in this one. Kevin Bacon plays the ultimate psycho kidnapper. And Courtney Love is a take charge Bit*ch who knows how to kick As*. Plenty of suspense but only needs to be watched one time, it just loses valve to more it is watched. A good one to add to the collection in case someone comes over and hasn't seen it. 3 1/2 stars.

    Decent thriller spoiled by a ridiculous ending. Would have been a lot better without the crashing cars and explosions. The whole cast (with the exception of a weak Stuart Townsend), are good in this - even Courtney Love, to my surprise. Dakota Fanning, excellent as always and Kevin Bacon pretty good in this one. Would have been a four star movie if they hadn't gone totally over the top at the end.
