5.0 out of 5 stars A gripping and inspirational film April 23, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
"Eden" tells the story of a young Korean-American girl who is kidnapped and sold into slavery by human traffickers. The movie follows her on her terrifying ordeal as she ascends the ranks within the organization and tries to plot her escape. "Eden" takes a very real subject that is little talked about here in the USA and turns it into a highly suspenseful and riveting movie that is both entertaining and enlightening.

The acting is phenomenal across the board, with Jamie Chung especially shining in the lead role. Beau Bridges and Matt O'Leary also turn in excellent performances as the villainous leaders of the trafficking ring. Also deserving of mention is the superb direction by rising female director Megan Griffiths, who brings a level of emotional sensitivity and realism to the film that is often lacking in most mainstream movies. All in all, this is an emotionally exhilarating movie will leave you on the edge of your seat while still delivering an important message about this very real issue that plagues our world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Well-Done May 1, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
A friend sent me the website about this movie because she knows that human trafficking is a cause that is very near and dear to my heart. I watched the trailer and thought that it looked amazing but was disappointed that there would not be a showing in my state. I was thrilled when I found out that not only could I watch it on Amazon on Demand, but that some of the proceeds would go to organizations that fight human trafficking, like the Polaris Project.

This movie blew me away. The acting was superb and the portrayal of human trafficking in the US was dead on. The movie did not try to sensationalize anything and the violence is not too graphic. The movie tells the story in a very dignified way without resorting to shock tactics. "Eden" is a very entertaining, suspenseful thriller. Even if Human Trafficking is not a topic that interests you, I urge you to see this movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Movie Review! - (...) - @tss5078 October 6, 2013
Format:DVD
To me, films like this are the true definition of horror, because they really happened. Anyone can look up the graphic details on Wikipedia and see that not only did it happen here, but it happened fairly recently. Hyun-Jae was just a typical California teenager, who went out to party one night. She met a man, left with him, and quickly learned he wasn't what he appeared to be. Hyun-Jae is sold into prostitution and has no other choice, but to be a sex slave for the next three years. The film was very well done, in that it didn't go over the top. Abduction of Eden showed us, what we needed to see, in order to understand and be shocked by what happened, but it didn't go so far as to desensitize us to the story. Jamie Chung, A.K.A. Stu's wife from the Hangover, stars as Hyun Jae, and her performance was really key to how the audience would react to what was happening. Equally as good, was the jailer, Matthew O'Leary. It took me a while to recognize his as the kid from Domestic Disturbance and Spy Kids 2, and it was shocking to see how quickly he grew up. He was this horrible guy, doing terrible things, but there was a part of you that saw him as trapped as the girls were and you couldn't help but feel sorry for him. The cast makes the film, it's as simple as that. Abduction of Eden was a story that was fast moving and somewhat graphic, but ultimately predictable. Films like this one could go either way, it all comes down to just what they show and who they cast, and the producers of this film did an outstanding job of both.

5.0 out of 5 stars A story more people need to see August 5, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This movie is well done, not for children though, even though the subject matter is handled very tactfully. Lots of language and some violence and of course sexual themes. What is important to realize is that this story happened in America. Most of the girls involved were American citizens. And right now, this very minute, the story continues.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intense well acted June 8, 2013
By Dstress
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
A very difficult subject that could of gone way off into sleaze land but the direction was amazing and the central performance by the lead actress was so believable. She starts off so timid and pathetic but turns into a shrewd character throughout. Makes you sick thinking this is based on a true story and that this industry exists. Very good film...

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping, Edgy Drama that Exposes a Hidden World March 28, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
Based on the real life events of Chong Kim, the action in Eden starts from the opening scene and moves right up to the dramatic finish. Jamie Chung really showcases her broad array of talents in the lead role as a kidnapped teenager, for whom mere survival becomes a struggle on many levels. Director Megan Griffiths deserves kudos for her work in bringing this film to life. You will never view the "adult entertainment" world the same after watching this movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars MOTIONLESS ABDUCTION FILM June 27, 2013
Format:DVD
Eden (Jamie Chung) is an Asian born American who is kidnapped and forced into a prostitution ring, being held captive against her will with a group of other young women. It was based on a true story and as such I waited the whole film for her to escape. The action was slow paced. This film is not the exploitation type film that normally accompany this genre, but it wasn't a hard hitting film to bring the problem of forced prostitution to light.

The acting was good, but the film ran in circles. If you took out the profanity and a few near sex scenes, this could have been a Lifetime Film which have yet to find their way into my heart. If you like that Lifetime entertainment and don't mind the spicy language, then go for it.
