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)

As the eight other reviews gave this film five stars I was looking forward to watching it.All I can say is that I must be missing something as this is without doubt one of the worst films i've seen all year.Dont know if its me or the other reviewers who need a white stick.

I thought the film was generally 'ok' however I did find that the trail leading our hero to the villains was all too ....'manufactured' and 'convenient'. Last but not least I did feel our hero 'overacted' a little ... in general though a two star vigilante filler film.

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.

Oh dear, it was a really poor quality plot - no flow in the story with new people appearing and no explanation why.
One wonders if the writer knows anything about USA immigration rules and ex cons.
Very disjointed and really the violence was overpalyed.

I highly reccomend watching Abducted. Great actors and a great indie film that looks more like a bigbudget film. Lots of great action .

A very sensitive subject deserved a much more talented leading actor. Watching Mark Harris was both cringe-worthy and at times laugh out loud hilarious it was that bad. As the story is based on real life shocking events, this film deserved some far more heavy weight actors who could have handled such a complex story line. I give it 2 starts as he clearly threw himself into the role, and the fighting scenes were far more convincing, but not a film I would recommend to anyone.

Tried to watch this film to the end but didn't succeed! It was uncomfortable viewing from the beginning, from rapes of young girls to child porn(a boy of about five in a bedroom with a man & a camera I'll leave it there) to severe beatings to kidnapping & child trafficking(seeing grown men bidding for young children made me feel ill)I know it happens but this film was wrong on so many levels! Not my idea of entertaining!!
