Audience Reviews for The Kidnapping (Black Friday)
Amy Carlson is the woman in charge of a bank's security system. Two dirty cops (played by the slightly washed-up duo of Judd Nelson and Thomas Ian Griffith) kidnap her daughter (played by Darcy Rose Byrnes) and a friend to force her to open the safety deposit box of one of her bank's clients and give to them its content. Meanwhile, an investigation about police corruption in the department is already underway. This derivative, think of it as a cross between Trapped and Don't Say A Word, thriller lingers too long on the anguish and fear of the desperate mother and the kidnapped daughter, which gives it a rather unpleasant taste. Still, the experienced director, Arthur Allan Seidelman, manages to get some suspense out of it in places, and Amy Carlson gives a very convincing performance, she offers more to the movie than the movie offers to her.
