Editorial Reviews

Two-time Golden Globe nominee Maria Bello of ''Prime Suspect'' stars as Lorraine, a stressed out single mom harassed by an abusive ex-husband and struggling to raise her 8-year-old son. Her world changes in an instant when she and her child are carjacked by a fugitive bank robber (Stephen Dorff of Immortals) and taken on a desperate cross-country drive to retrieve his loot. But Lorraine refuses to be a victim. She is about to take control and fight back. And tonight, what she will do to survive may lead to the most shocking crimes of all. Joanna Cassidy (''Six Feet Under'') and Catherine Dent (''The Shield'') co-star in this intense action-thriller from the director of THE MARINE.

"I don't want your money, you got a car don't you...drive" Lorraine (Bello) is having a rough time. Her husband left her with her young son and she has no money. Her night begins with group therapy, then she spends the rest of the money she has on Bagel Bites and gas. It gets worse when Roy (Dorff) comes into her life. He wants a ride, and has a gun to make sure he gets one. Lorraine and her son are now forced to help him. This is a movie that could easily have been a cheesy TV drama. The fact that Bello & Dorff are the actors helps make it into a more tense and exciting thriller. This is the kind of movie that has you hooked 5 minutes in and you are tense and on the edge of your seat the entire time. Stuck between doing what you would think you would do, and what you should do keeps you thinking and engrossed the entire time. Nothing really amazing here, but one of the most tense and exciting thrillers I have seen in a while. Overall, a very good movie that won't disappoint and is very much worth watching. I give it a B+.

Before I write this review I take full responsibility for watching this film. It's my fault and I deserve what I got. I have always loved Stephen Dorff and he is like a bad drug I can't kick. With every release he makes his movies get worse and I KNOW this yet I keep giving them a try.

So I'm to blame for watching Carjacked. It's not even like I expect Stephen's movies to be good now. The last twenty have been terrible so I lost expectations back when he made Steal AKA Riders.

Sigh. What can I say about this movie? Okay, it's bad. Which I am sure we all know. It's not as bad as some of Stephen's movies but that's not a compliment seeing how awful some of his movies have been.

There are tons of problems with Carjacked. It's boring, it's predictable, it's slow, it's pathetic and I could go on forever.

SPOILER ALERT!

Roy (Dorff) carjacks Lorraine (Maria Bella, who I liked before seeing her in this and now I will run from her movies from now on) and her son Chad at a gas station. They spend the first hour of the movie bonding like they are on an inspirational field trip. At one time I expected them to start singing Kumbaya. A movie like this is supposed to be a thriller but it's hard to be on edge when the main character is chatting it up with her kidnapper like they're in Hawaii.

Lorraine never tried to get away until almost the end of the film. The direction was horrible but the character development was shameful. That's what I absolutely could not forgive.

At the beginning, Roy acts like Lorraine's best friend. He even seems compassionate about her ex-husband and the life she's led. Roy even takes to Chad. I mean it's obvious that he cares.

4.0 out of 5 stars entertaining December 26, 2011
By Doc
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I liked this movie.

While much of the criticism of other reviewers is accurate, I don't think the movie deserves some of the harsh judgemental comments. There were some unexpected (admittedly unlikely or unrealistic) twists that kept the energy going throughout the film. The weirdest thing to me was when Lorraine reached the diner after escaping from Roy and did not ask for help or call 911, but it proved to be a necessary part of the plot.

There were other contrived momments, but hey, this is supposed to be entertainment, not a documentary, and is certainly no more ridiculous than some of the big blockbusters (eg. Titanic). This movie will not win any awards, but I found it to be very entertaining and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys action films (which, less face it, are traditionally riddled with ridiculous dialogue and plot devices).

Maria Bello stars as Lorraine, a divorced mother who has trouble coping with life. She is unable to take charge of her life and blames herself for every misfortune that comes her way. While spending her last dollar at a convenience store on pizza bagels for her and her son, she gets carjacked by Roy, (Stephen Dorff) a somewhat understanding, yet terrifying bank robber who gets along great with her son Chad, who BTW needs a father figure. The movie takes you to a point where it can go a number of different ways and downhill would not have been my first choice, but that is how it went.

Good acting, although Mario Bello becomes less convincing as the plot turns unrealistic.

F-bomb, no sex, no nudity.

There is actually a nifty and intriguing psychological drama that continually strains to emerge from the straight-to-DVD endeavor "Carjacked." There is certainly nothing new to the plotting of this thriller as a kidnapper and his abductee play a dangerous game of cat and mouse, but as portrayed by Stephen Dorff and Maria Bello--it's generally well acted and engaging. I love these movies that showcase a battle of wits and require an ordinary citizen to rise to new heights of courage and ingenuity. So I was willing to allow a fair amount of good will toward "Carjacked." Although the screenplay never really provided much believability, I still enjoyed the character interactions that headlined the first hour of this ninety minute movie. However, once we reach the last third--any pretense of rational, logical, sensible or real behavior is thrown out the car door for an incredibly awkward action finale. It's a serious miscalculation that pretty much erased any of the positive spin I had put on the beginning. I literally groaned in disbelief as the picture went solidly downhill.

Bello plays the destitute and troubled mother of the likable Connor Hill. The movie wants to shortcut any subtle character development, so it starts with Bello attending a group therapy session. While grabbing some supplies and gas from a local convenience store (Note to producers: people in dire financial need probably wouldn't buy overpriced Bagel Bites from a convenience store. You ever shop groceries at a gas station? Not cheap.), she finds a strange man stowed in her car. Dorff is clearly evading some sort of law enforcement and persuades the family to drive him out of the area at gunpoint.

I enjoyed this movie but one thing in the story bothered me. Maria Bello seemed too friendly with her carjacker. Otherwise it was good.
