What to know

critics consensus

With an exploitative style that seems more suited for TV shows like CSI, Trade's message about the reality of child exploitation is easily lost. Read critic reviews

    I had a mixed reaction to the film. Overall, it was so so. I felt like the film was a bit uneven. I felt like I was watching 2 films, the 2nd film being the Kevin Kline part of the film. The film reminded me of movies like Bordertown, Imagining Argentina, and Taken. I thought Kevin Kline (who I like in other films) was miscast here. He seems out of place. Another actor in that role could have done a much better job with the role. The acting by Cesar Ramos, Alicja Bachleda, Paulina Gaitan was really good.

    Awesome movie about Child abduction and sexual slave trade that goes on throughout the world. This is about a 13 year old Mexican Girl who is abducted and what her 16 year old brother does to save her. Very enjoyable and eye opener. 5 stars

    More or less (okay, a bit less) at par with Taken. If you aren't taken by Taken as yet, you might want to trade for a copy of Trade. Not a must watch, though.

    Grim if now somewhat over familiar people trafficking 'issue' drama. Predictable plot is jolted with one fine scene on a cliff top. Kevin Kline is passable. A noble cause to highlight but not terribly entertaining.
