Editorial Reviews

The most astounding and uncompromising film of the year, Miguel Angel Vivas KIDNAPPED is a masterpiece of tension and all-too-realistic violence. Jaime and Marta, along with their teenage daughter Isa, move into a gorgeous new home with the hopes of beginning a beautiful new phase of their life together. It s the dream of every hard-working family: a comfortable life in a place of their own. But the dream is shattered when a gang of masked men break in and take the entire family hostage, demanding Jaime hand over everything he has in the bank or watch his wife and daughter die. And so begins an unimaginable ordeal for Jaime and his family.  Winner of Best Picture and Best Director honors at Fantastic Fest 2010, KIDNAPPED has been declared impeccably crafted, flawlessly performed (Todd Brown, TwitchFilm.com) and a new genre classic. (John Fallon, Arrow In The Head).

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.

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.

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.

I watched this movie on netflix because I heard it was good.

I was a bit disappointed that my only option to watch the movie was an English dub. The dubbing wasn't bad, but I would've much preferred to watch this in it's original Spanish. I can't comment if the DVD contains the original audio track or not.

Now to the movie.

This movie was pretty horrific and honestly uncomfortably scary. This was not a "fun" horror movie by any means. The victims don't muster up superhuman strength to beat the stuffing out of their tormentors and there is nothing funny about what's going on during the movie.

It's dark, brutal and gets quite nasty. The movie is very to the point.... a normal family moves into a nice house and 3 masked men unexpectedly show up and mayhem ensues. There isn't a lot of character development, and the men break into the house for no other reason other then to steal money. The family is targeted randomly and basically it's a "will the family survive or won't they" kind of deal.

The pacing is tight and clocks in around 90 minutes. Kidnapped is also well-filmed and well-lit with some stellar use of split screen during certain key moments. This movie certainly looked like it had a budget.

The tension and the suspense are intense to say the least and It's been a while since I've been genuinely frightened during a scary movie. It's weird, since the movie is so similar to the Strangers and those kinds of home invasion movies, but there is something about this flick that really grabbed me and scared me in a way that the Strangers did not.

I found myself yelling (more than once) "What are you doing?!??" "PICK UP A **^&$* weapon now!!" "RUN!" "Bite him!
