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.

"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.

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.

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...

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.

The Abduction of Eden was a film with heavy content overall, but it still manages to bring an important message to light.

If you've been skimming over the reviews listed here on amazon, you may have read how this film is supposed to be based off of the true story of Chong Kim, who was abducted in the mid-nineties. However, some people claim that she may have been lying about the incident, due to inconsistencies in her story over the years. In any case, I'm not going to make a judgment on whether she was telling the truth or not. The situation in the film is nothing to make light of.

In the film, Jamie Chung plays the role of Hyun Jae, a high school student who gets abducted one night after she goes out, on what she thinks, is a romantic interlude with a sex trafficking predator. She's driven off to a remote facility where she and several other girls are held against their will. They are then forced into the sex trade. The girls in the film range in age. Some are supposed to be as young as 12 while others look like they may be in their early 20s.

First, Jamie Chung is forced to make an S&M video where she and another girl are cuffed and then whipped by a dominatrix. Eventually she's forced, by her handlier, to see Jon's. It's a pretty disturbing situation overall and pulls at your heart strings, but that's the purpose of the film. You eventually begin to follow Chung's plight and the details of her daily life. The film takes some thrilling twists and turns until it reaches a conclusion where Chung eventually escapes from her whole ordeal.

I have to say, this film does a good job of depicting the horrors these young girls face once they get abducted into this life.
