I think Halle Berry did great in Kidnap. The movie will have you on the edge of your seat and trust me there is never a dull moment. Plus the movie is not predictable so that's a plus! Don't Listen to all the kidnap haters and not watch the movie. I think you should watch the movie and judge for yourself whether it is a good movie or not. People have different opinions and you might actually like the movie. Just Give It A Chance!!!!!
Great movie! (by ndr-alkan)
I really loved this movie... every minute is thrill with a good story! You can relate to the characters. Halle's acting is again breathtaking. I really don't understand why some users have negative comments about this movie. I gave it 10 out of 10, because it does justice to its genre.Thriller movie lovers should definitely see it.
Great Movie, Suspenseful, Creepy (by bipolarsuxs)
This movie is nothing short of amazing. Given the situation I would have done the same thing like a bat out of Hell. Halle Berry gave an emotional and real performance. There are no clichés and you never knew what was happening next. There really isn't much left too say but, EXCELLENT!
I enjoyed it more than I expected (by edwinthomp)
Halle's acting was superb, she really carried the intensity of the moment throughout. yes it should've been a little bit shorter but for this kind of movie I was entertained and on the edge of my seat for the most part. Oh and as someone who always forgets to charge my phone It didn't take suspension of belief for me to go along with how much trouble you can get into by not having a dang phone on you. I felt the morale of the film really is that you have to fight for your own, no one will care as much as you do.
8.5/10 (by TheTopDawgCritic)
Halle was very convincing in this role! This movie was perfectly cast, written and directed.It was a thrill ride start to finish.It shows the natural instinctive protection a mother has for her young.I guess her ex-husband wont be demanding sole full custody any more! Bonus: A Caravan is a good van, but would be better if it had OnStar for those times you lose your phone :
Great Action Thriller....Halle Berry is Great! (by TheTruthDoor)
"Kidnap" is an exciting ride.Halle Berry is perfect for her role....she is still at the top of her game...and hot as ever.The first few minutes of the film are a little over the top...but they setup the rest of the film and show the audience the love a mother has for her son.Once the film takes off, get ready for a thrilling ride. I wanted to be there for Halle, to help her....and to love her. : Don't miss "Kidnap"....it is a must see movie. And Halle, if you are out there....I will be here for you always.
Excellent thrill ride! (by adventure7)
What does it take to make a good thriller? Suspense, to feel the tension, to give you the chills. And this movie did that in the right way! Don't get influenced by subjective people who walked of the movie after the first 10 minutes!If you love good flicks that give you goosebumps and mainly love thrillers, this is the perfect movie for you. Watching the trailer I was expecting mediocre movie, but what I got was way above that. It reminded me of another Halle Berry's thriller - The Call from 2013 which was very good too.I can't say it's a perfect film, it has it's flaws. <more>
There is only one "what happened to that" moment. You know, when some questions aren't answered, but it wasn't that big of a deal at all.Halle Berry's stellar and compelling performance definitely sells the character of a suffering mother trying to safe her kid's life. The other actors did pretty good job too.The film pushes the right buttons to make you feel the suspense in the whole run time. It surely deserves 10/10!
It's now or never! A mother's fight back! (by Reno-Rangan)
Truly shocking for people blindly following the words of critics. This is really a good film. I totally enjoyed it. Well, it was not like I never saw such film. In a century of motion picture history, hundreds of similar films were made. This is just another one, but there's nothing wrong with it. People wrongly judged it. The pace of the film was rocket speed. So basically, there's no time for one to keep looking for flaws. If they do, then they're not enjoying the show. They missed out everything, hence end up bashing it. Just like the clowns, aka film critics.It was another <more>
kidnap film that Halle Barry in it, that's similar to her previous film 'The Call'. It did not take long to get into the action. A hardworking mother, going through divorce, fighting for her son's custody. While engaging in a phone call, she loses her son in an amusement park. The alert mother quickly jumps into pursuing when he was seen forcefully taken in a stranger's car. The remaining events take place on the road, with car chases, with a twist before the conclusion.Nicely written screenplay and well performed actors, particularly Halle Berry. I have never seen she had played such an energetic role in the recent time. Whatever the storyline is, it's kind of an inspiring film. How a mother fought for her son. Totally a mother instinct. You can't simply expect like the film 'Taken'. It might not be realistic, but cinematically honest. The same thing happens in the animal world too. Sad that the film released after so many delays. Moreover, how people responded to it. Believe me, it is a nice film and I definitely suggest it to all.8/10
I went to see Halle Berry in Kidnap because Halle is a fine actress and she plays the hell out of any role she takes on. Halle did it again in Kidnap! This movie is a roller coaster ride from the start of the car chase scenes until the end. The kid playing Frankie, whom is kidnapped, is so adorable and I was afraid for him as I watched him experience this horrible ordeal. And the kidnappers, they are extremely frightful when you witness the deceit, planning, and terrorizing they commit against children. I say ignore the bad reviews for this film because they are not fair – Kidnap is a good <more>
