Kidnap - Review




R: August 4th, 2017 | R: 81 minutes | R: R

Kidnap turns an average day at the park for Karla Dyson (Halle Berry) and her 6 year-old son, Frankie, into a nightmare when he is kidnapped. With its first release date scheduled almost two years ago however financial issues hit the original distributor leading to it being delayed and picked up by two more companies, is Kidnap worth the chase?

Karla is a newly single mom in a custody battle with her ex-husband and ends up getting distracted when kidnappers take her son and herself on a relentless chase that is nothing short of having viewers on the edge of their seats.

Kidnap Stars Halle Berry, a single mom who is a waitress and her son is the most important thing to her. After work she takes her son to the park when she gets a phone call, she answers the phone and tells her son to stay where he is. Her son ends up getting kidnapped and she the car that takes him. She gets into her car and a crazy car chase ensues. The whole movie she is trying to get her son back from the abductors by herself, the police miss her in every circumstance so she's just on her own. In the end she does whatever it takes and gets her son back.

This movie was suspenseful although pretty unbelievable at times. I don't think any mother would let the car that takes their children leave the parking lot where they took them. The car chase was ridiculous, there's just no way the cops wouldn't be on scene after everything that happened. I did like when she really fought back in the later parts of the movie.
