The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Kidnapped (2010)


Director: Miguel Ángel Vivas

On a family's first night in their new home, three criminals break in and hold them hostage until their banking accounts are emptied.

My Take:
A very intense movie, especially the final fifteen minutes. However there are way too many lags where nothing really happens but screaming by the victims. These long takes dont fit well with the pace and other editing. And a few things just do not make sense. Not good in a movie where logical maneuver are needed.
Take a chance as it not terrible. Perhaps you will like it better than I did.

Rating: In the middle
