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.

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.

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.

This was not a bad story. The whole issue was evident about 15 minutes into the film- the lead actor. If they had another actor in the lead role this would have been an ok film.

The lead actor didn't fit in with the rest of the cast, even the fringe characters out acted him. One scene down an alley and drunk was meant to be highly emotional I presume, but it's one of the worse acted scenes I've seen and total uncalled for as far as the story was going, there's so many others ways this could have been done this more intelligently/entertaining.

I've just noticed the director "Mark Harris", the lead actor.......

Don't know if this was a budget issue, but when at the helm it's wise to delegate to lieutenants who are better skilled in something then yourself...

A low budget movie. Taken but without Liam Neeson or the budget. The lead actor is terrible. Every time he spoke, it was like he was chewing on his words. I cannot explain how bad his acting is. At one point, we actually see what he is eating while he talks. Not nice. The whole idea is good, but the way it plays out is just laughable. He somehow finds the people who have taken his daughter, but there are no clues. He just drives around for a bit, happens to come across the people he needs to find and then off he goes on an action rampage. Its madness. There is a scene where he is drunk and shouting at God - I tell you, if you fancy a laugh, then watch this. It made us chuckle in disbelieve. I like the Lovefilm idea, you get the movies at a good rate - so I am not too fussed that this was a waste of time. But I would suggest you avoid this film. And there are two teenagers involved somehow, they must be captured by the same people, but the film never makes the connection for you.

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.

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.
