Critic Reviews for They've Taken Our Children: The Chowchilla Kidnapping Story

All Critics (1) | Top Critics (1) | Rotten (1)

  • Instead of setting up a true thriller, They've Taken Our Children: The Chowchilla Kidnapping numbly records the story step by step; the suspense, as well as the bus, vanishes.
