Critic Reviews for Kidnapped

All Critics (4)

At times the acting is wooden, and the film gets off to a slow start, but once it gets rolling, it is "family entertainment" that is truly entertaining.

Benefits greatly from stellar performances but struggles with its cumbersome storyline.

June 22, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Kidnapped has been made with a high degree of professionalism, good taste and literacy. It is intelligent and superior in every way. Even the smallest roles have been well cast with superb actors.
