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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful, brutal and bravado movie making! May 4, 2013
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.

Format:DVD
Daryl Loomis, DVD Verdict --Kidnapped is driven by its scenario, not its characters, which has its positives and its negatives. Writer/director Miguel Ángel Vivas (Reflections) doesn't give the audience anything to go on and just drops them into the situation. The main characters are neither sympathetic nor hateable; there are no indications as to why these men have entered the home or, outside of money, what they hoped to achieve; there is basically no story to speak of at all. As much as those deficiencies might indicate failure, though, the film actually works rather well.

Because it's a blank slate with very little story development, Kidnapped manages to steer clear of gimmicks. Sure, the family fights back, but nobody turns out to be massively strong, nobody jumps in to save them at the end, and nobody has some heretofore unknown skill that is perfect for just this situation. Horror has enough of all that, as it stands. Instead, the film goes into mostly realist territory, meaning that those with the best weapons and the most force are the ones who win, while those without are left to suffer punishment. That doesn't make for an especially heartwarming film, but I like the fact that it doesn't pretend that there's much hope for the victims.

Of course, if there's no real story development and no redemption of the characters, it leads to the inevitable question of why somebody would want to watch in the first place. That's more difficult to answer, because there's a lingering feeling when watching any of the films in this realm that all I'm doing is watching wretched things happen to people. If they're token, though, discerning redeemable qualities in characters is utterly pointless and this isn't the kind of movie that abides much pointless activity.
