Format: DVD
Matt (Mark Harris) is a grease monkey and former boxer who takes a holiday to the states with his family. Not just any place, but the city where children are kidnapped and sold to childless parents without adoption papers and where young girls are also forced into prostitution, especially if they are English tourists.

Matt's little girl Lara (nicely played by Honor Kneafsey) is kidnapped in what was a set up from the on set. With his wife beaten into a coma and his daughter missing, police suspect the boxer with an arrest record. With the help of a street wise stranger, Matt goes Charles Bronson all over the bad guys while easily avoiding the cops.

One of the nice things I noticed about this film is that the kidnapped British teens were given the same treatment as their kidnapped non-English speaking counterparts. Just makes one proud to be an American.

This is another "Death Wish" type of film. It has a some differences, but basically it is a vigilante film. The acting and plot were okay, but then again this type of film doesn't require too much.

Parental Guide: f-bomb, rape, nudity (Kelsey Hardwick)

Not worth watching, badly acted - no wonder we've never heard about it before. Bad directing, totally unbelievable, really - don't waste your time watching this.

This movie has the look and feel of a big budget movie which is a very difficult thing to do on an Indie budget, and that's why the 5 stars. The story develops quickly as you get to experience the difficult emotions this family is facing before the current action even starts. The acting is superb for the indie level and almost all of the characters are believable and well cast. The little girl has talent beyond her years and is convincing and she will touch you heart several times throughout the story. Once the action starts it's an exciting ride that builds to a great climax. This is a disturbing subject that tugs at any normal persons heartstrings, but it is told with just enough detail to get the point across without going into gratuitous horror for the sake of shock. It is something that is happening all over the world, and yes even in our own back yards, and Abducted forces us to look at all of the characters involved in the the child abduction and sex slave trafficking world, even the ones who might call themselves innocent who create a market for the trade. It is a great movie and worth watching.

This film reminds me of the movie Taken with Liam Nielson with a smaller budget of course. Nonetheless I think it was a good story. I really liked the London scenes. But I felt it took a little long for the family to go to the US. I love action movies and while this film isn't the best I've seen, it was far from the worst. I was interested all the way through and found myself rooting for the lead character.

I am not a big fan of Indie type movies however, I am interested in the world of human trafficking and how it works. This movie did just what I thought it would do: it showed me how things work in the real world. I would recommend this movie if you're looking for something to watch or to be educated on the world of Human Trafficking.

This certainly is an important and timely film. Some very real and shocking issues are explored in a very different way to the usual Hollywood fare. So if you're looking for a good British film with a trans-Atlantic flavour then this is going to be for you. Mark Harris is going to be one to watch in the coming years.

This indie film caught me off guard. I wasn't expecting much because I never heard of it although the cover looked attractive. I was surprised because there so many different characters with different story lines and I like how they all came together. The action was good. The little girl was awesome. My main issue that the actions scenes were a little unnecessarily violent.
