What to know

critics consensus

Kidnap strays into poorly scripted exploitation too often to take advantage of its pulpy premise -- or the still-impressive talents of its committed star. Read critic reviews

    Halle Berry stars in the indie thriller Kidnap. While at a park a single mother's child is abducted out from under her, lead her to get into a high-speed car chase; knowing that if she loses them she'll never see her son again. Berry gives a really strong performance and director Luis Prieto does a good job at keeping the film in the main character's perspective; adding to the tension and suspense. And the stunt work is especially well-done, making for some really incredible car crashes and fight scenes. Yet the film is kind of limited in where it can go and what it can do. Still, despite having a few weaknesses, Kidnap is a gritty and exciting chase film that's remarkably intense.

    Kidnap gets kidnapped... by itself. Alright, not really... but the concept of this film within a review makes it look like it. Stereotypes everywhere I agree, yes? Stereotypes or clichés, whatever you call it, make this film look ridiculously predictable from the start and are the huge reason why Kidnap kidnaps itself to a mediocre score.

    Poorly crafted and pretty predictable, I do wonder how Halle Berry got to making movies like Kidnap. It's not awful, but it's obviously low-budget, and there's nothing to it that I can really see as being appealing beyond the paycheque.
