Some critics are comparing Kidnap to Taken. Taken was an unrealistic and pathetic movie about a Bond type "superhero" who rescued his daughter because he was impervious to bullets. Kidnap is a story about a mother in a blind panic because her child was kidnapped. It is realistic, feasible, well acted, and kept my wife and I glued to the screen throughout. I would advise its critics to go back to watching their never ending flow of fantasy superhero films and leave the good movies to more discerning viewers.
If you lived in this area, you will know that these characters really are true to life. The movie is very funny yet it accurately depicts the sad demise of the great steel works and the ensuing poverty struggle. Brilliantly scripted and directed.
Delightful and moving film, especially if you live among the folk and know the brass bands of the area concerned. I find it impossible to give it less than five stars.
Well produced, well acted and exciting, except when it ends without any clue whether the little boy or his mother died. That, to me, made the whole film pointless and I feel I've wasted a couple of hours of my life watching it.
The plot is complicated yet followable, the acting is good, the baddies are weird yet feasible and the movie is gripping throughout. The fashionable mumbling style of acting, which makes some of the dialogue difficult to follow and the ridiculously reckless drive to the hospital are my only criticisms: they didn't retract from my enjoyment of the film though. This a film with a difference. Watch it and it's very unlikely you'll be disappointed.
