4.0 out of 5 stars A potrait of what could actually happen! 30 Jun 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Kidnapped is a very bold and very uncompromising thriller of bare back emotions and family truma. tells the shocking story of a nice every day family move in their luxury dream house, their typical teen daughter wants to throw a party at her mates on the first day at the new house instead of staying home with family. the family are intruded and left in cruel circumstances a mission to give the three masked men every penny they have in order to save their lives. Kidnapped does live up to all the hype in a way but not as brutal or real as I imagined but still one heck of a cruel and depressing roller coaster rides.

brilliant thriller though

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Particularly Original, But A Bleak And Effective Home Invasion Thriller 18 Nov 2011
By K. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Bleak and relentlessly unpleasant, the Spanish film "Kidnapped" (Secuestrados) by Miguel Angel Vivas is a familiar, yet well orchestrated, take on the home invasion drama. Voyeuristic camera work and interesting split screen sequences invite (or demand) the viewer to partake of the humiliations wrought upon a typical family by a trio of masked marauders. It's a relatively unflinching look at violence that some might equate (with reason) to the genre of torture porn that is so popular these days, although it is nowhere near as graphic as other examples. Two comparison points that leapt immediately to mind were Haneke's "Funny Games" and "The Strangers." "Kidnapped" manages to make the most of its uncomfortable situations by staging them in a very realistic way. As such, with this description, you will automatically know if this film is for you or not depending on your interest in this type of genre. I will say, however, this is a tense and exceedingly well acted nightmare.

The movie starts with a terrific and chilling segment that has almost no relationship to the rest of the film. Soon, however, we are introduced to Jaime and Marta--an affluent couple moving into a new suburban estate with their teenage daughter. Fernando Cayo is excellent as the harried father, and Ana Wagener is quite effective as the stressed-out mother. The family is experiencing typical middle class woes. Daughter Isa (Manuela Velles) wants to go out with friends, mama wants a family celebration. In the midst of routine family discord, however, all heck breaks loose as three men storm the home. Motivated by money, one of the intruders take Jaime off to empty ATM accounts while the other two stand watch over the women. Before the night is through, the tension and violence continues to escalate. I can't really go beyond that as the drama needs to unfold at its own pace, but things become spectacularly brutal.

Again, while I admired much about the film (especially the performances)--I just wish it hadn't played to so many expected conventions. The assailants aren't fully formed characters, but you've certainly seen their types before--the rational tactician, the hot headed powder keg and the conflicted guy over his head. The director, in painting the realism of the situation, relies on a lot of long stagnant camera takes. And while yes, that does make for a gritty impersonal feel, it also distances us from the victims as well. The ending itself may be a love-it or hate-it proposition, but it definitely stays true to the feel of the picture. "Kidnapped" is not fun or nice or pleasant, but it is strong filmmaking. While I feel that this plot has been utilized in countless other movies, it still works here in a very unsettling and effective way. KGHarris, 11/11.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shocking and Unforgettable 1 Dec 2011
By Dayna Newman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Kidnapped took quite awhile to establish it's main characters so that made it a little slow in the begging ,slow yet still interesting.
The further you get into the film the more you get immersed into the story,it's as if you are there.Brilliant camera angles and infectious acting take it even further up the Indie film chain.
The ending of this movie left me breathless and truly shocked.It wasn't a gore fest but there are some very very brutal and gory scenes one in particular that will stay with you for quite some time.I say buy it because it is a film you can watch again.
The intruders are like many we have seen in films such as this before.
The good one ,who wants no bloodshed,the sociopath that of course could care less and the middle man who is neither here nor there just being part of the team,somehow this manages to do it better than most.
Amazing genre piece.

3.0 out of 5 stars An accomplished film-making exercise 12 Jan 2012
By Michael Harbour - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
An accomplished film-making exercise which nevertheless leaves me unsatisfied because I never care about the people in the movie and, really, it's essential that we care about someone in a movie like this; whether the victims or the villains.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful, brutal and bravado movie making! 4 May 2013
By Amazon user against Genocide - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I found this movie to be quite well done. It's a very realistic and very sadistic film that has about the most unhappy ending I think I have ever seen. In fact the ending is about as depraved and despicable at you can imagine. A lot of people complained about the dubbing, which was actually done about as good as it can possibly get. Any time dubbing is involved it's incredibly difficult to make it match up without getting rather laughable results. But here though the dubbing seems sometimes pathetic, it's done about as respectfully as is humanly possible. As far as dubbing goes this was one of the better attempts at it. So I was able to accept it for what it was. That aside this film is fairly believable and very entertaining, even though the end result is very unforgiving and depraved. This film lies somewhere between 'Last House On The Left' and 'In Cold Blood'. The victims of a home invasion robbery in this film are treated sadistically and unflinchingly. The audience can hope all it wants, but the end result delivers some very heartbreaking and brutally honest reality. Things like this unfortunately happen in real life once in awhile. Life is sometimes all too hopeless in situations such as this. Sometimes hope and the will to live are not respected enough, and people suffer and die anyway. In the meantime, however sad and bleak this story might be, what lies in between is some of the most horrifying film making I have seen in a long time. I think this film. while brutally frank and despicable in it's subject matter, is superbly executed and powerfully presented. Certainly bleak and discusting, but also simply unforgettable.
