Product Description

From the producer of Thelma & Louise comes a white-knuckle, edge-of-your-seat thriller starring Charlize Theron (Mighty Joe Young, Sweet November), Courtney Love (The People vs. Larry Flynt), Stuart Townsend (Queen of the Damned) and Kevin Bacon (Hollow Man, Wild Things). When their daughter is abducted and taken for ransom by a gang of serial kidnappers, a young doctor and his wife find themselves held hostage while a 24-hour plan to extort their money is set into motion. Now, with time running out and the health of their asthmatic daughter at serious risk, they find themselves in a life-and-death race against the clock as the "perfect crime" begins spiraling towards an unthinkable, terrifying and deadly conclusion.

Amazon.com

Kevin Bacon and Charlize Theron square off in a smarter-than-average kidnapping thriller. Joe (Bacon), Cheryl (Courtney Love), and Marvin (Pruitt Taylor Vince) are a kidnapping team with the perfect plan. Perfect, that is, until they pick on the wrong wholesome but incredibly feisty young family. There's the plot, and boom--you're off. Though it certainly hits all the right buttons, Trapped is far from a by-the-numbers suspense movie. There are a few genuinely surprising plot twists, and while many movies dull their villains' edges by cartoonishly over- or underplaying their evil, Trapped is refreshingly unafraid to make Joe realistically, skin-crawlingly vile. Even our heroes turn out to have surprising sadistic streaks. Toward the end, the movie takes a sharp right turn toward the ludicrous, with nearly every major character making at least one completely illogical decision, but by that point you're already strapped in, so you may as well just sit back and enjoy. --Ali Davis

Customer Reviews

The character was one dimensional and this affected the story.
nina
I know people always say the book is always better but even if i hadnt read the book this movie was terrible.
Nicole
This may be Kevin Bacon's best performance and Charlize Theron is better than she's ever been in this role.

Recently, I bought Trapped on DVD and enjoyed it. The film featured some strong performances and intensity, but as some of you know did horribly in the box-office. I was really eager to see this film because I almost had a chance of seeing it in theatres, but you know there was a huge difficulty with that.
Anyway, Trapped is based on the novel: 24 Hours, by Greg Iles. To be honest, I didn't read the book so I can't give you a great comparison but from seeing the movie, which was good I can bet the book would be even better.
The plot of the film is excellent, with a well conceived/concocted plan, devised by Kevin Bacon and Courtney Love, who are the villans so to speak in the film. Charlize Theron and Stuart Townsend are a happily married couple and have a daughter. Soon, Kevin Bacon's plan goes into action and he kidnaps her daughter but there's much more to the kidnapping than you think, for it's a kidnapping for ransom. Over a 24 hour
period the couple's money is being extorted into Bacon's and Love's hands. After that period is over the child will be relinquished back into the family's hands. So, the film had a great plot, just perhaps there needs to be a few more developments.
The press didn't screen the movie for reviews, and the film duration in theatres was only for about two weeks, which is sorry
to say very pitiful, but all in all I liked this film and reading
the book would be something I'd like to try. Trapped is rated R for Violence, Language and Sexual Content. There is a thrilling action sequence at the end of the film, which I personally enjoyed. There is actually some excessive profanity, not throughout the film but at some certain parts, as for the sexuality it's fairly brief and not explicit. There isn't any nudity.
Trapped, an interesting thriller, with a plot but just didn't do well enough to be a great film in the eyes of many. Own it today on Video and DVD.

Meet Joe Hickley, an intense, professional kidnapper played expertly by Kevin Bacon. His plan? Kidnap a child from wealthy parents, hold him or her for ransom, intimidate and control the wife while the husband is away, then force the husband to come up with the ransom money. Joe's plan has been flawless. Until he takes the wrong child. From the wrong parents.

Charlize Theron plays mother to Dakota Fanning in the first film that made me sit up and take notice of this sensational child actress. Dakota's role as an asthmatic child is played to perfection, although her natural pallor I'm sure helped with her role. Charlize plays a mother who is first horrified to find her child missing, terrified of the strange intruder (Bacon) in her house, but then she comes through and begins to fight as we hope most mother's would. You can't help but cheer her on.

Stuart Townsend plays the handsome, floatplane-jetting doctor who is stalked by Bacon's partner in crime, Courtney Love. And while he's fending off Courtney, Bacon's other partner has Dakota stashed away in a cabin in the middle of nowhere. This fragile looking sweetie shows her own smarts and strengths, and holds her own among her peers.

It is the immediate non-stop action of this film that hooked me into watching it three times. And Dakota's stunning performance. That girl has acting in her blood! From the second the movie starts to the chase scene at the end, the tension doesn't let up. Charlize is believable in her mother role and the energy between her and Bacon sizzles just enough to make your skin crawl. Bacon is scarily in his element in this type of role.

All in all, the performances were very good, the plot raced by and rarely slowed, the emotions were well acted and the ending, satisfying. For an action-packed thriller and a smorgasbord of delectable actors, check out Trapped. This is one of my all-time favorites.

Although it has a gripping plot, and a spectacular ending, the film tended to drag at points. It has a really great cast, with Kevin Bacon looking actually really good for his age, and Courtney Love being a surprisingly believeable actress, despite suffering a miscarriage during filming.

Thankfully, Charlize Theron & Stuart Townsend, a couple in real life, don't appear on screen together enough, but just enough to show us they have zero chemistry together.

What really surprised me about this movie, was Dakota Fanning's performance. In recent movies I've seen her in, I really didn't like her that much, as she always comes across as a little brat. But in this, she played the part really well, playing an asthmatic little girl, despite being only 8 - although she looks younger. The casting people also did really well choosing her as Charlize Theron's daughter in this, as they could be mother & daughter. And she acts traumatized perfectly.

Kevin Bacon shoved away all my thoughts of Hollow Man (which previously scared the hell out of me), and although not your conventionally handsome actor, he's easy on the eye. Although he has a slightly dodgy looking tattoo of a spider's web on his stomach, there appears to be one on his back too, but I couldn't see it closely enough. Boo.

The ending is fantastic, and definitely makes up for any doubts other viewers may have had during the rest of the movie. The ending is really sad, and I won't ruin anything for anyone who hasn't seen it, but what I do want to know is what happened to Marvin, played by Pruitt Taylor Vince? It's shown what happens to the family, and Courtney Love's character, but I loved Marvin in this, and I desperately wanted to know what happened to him. Maybe it shows in the alternate ending.
