Audience Reviews for Taken in Broad Daylight


Nice to see Van der Beek in a bad-guy role & Burton giving such a strong performance - as all the supporting actors do. A slightly better than average made-for-TV flick.

Poorly Acted Film About a Kidnapping. There are very few redeeming points in this 'made for T.V' drama about a high school senior who was kidnapped from a parking lot in Nebraska back in 2001. Although the topic of this film is a fairly serious one, it is a huge disappointment in terms of writing, direction and acting. The movie starts out as a teenage high school drama, and ever so slowly and painfully gets worse and worse as it goes along. The dialogue is unbelievably and at best, poorly delivered. The most intense scene was a mind boggling cluster of bad lines, and inane acting, that it ruins any drama that should have been part of such a horrendous act. Every part of this movie dissolves into your typical 'straight to video' movie. 1/5

Decent. Sara Canning did a great job in her role. James Van Der Beek is always terrible, so I didn't expect much from him.
