Editorial Reviews

Two-time Golden Globe nominee Maria Bello of ''Prime Suspect'' stars as Lorraine, a stressed out single mom harassed by an abusive ex-husband and struggling to raise her 8-year-old son. Her world changes in an instant when she and her child are carjacked by a fugitive bank robber (Stephen Dorff of Immortals) and taken on a desperate cross-country drive to retrieve his loot. But Lorraine refuses to be a victim. She is about to take control and fight back. And tonight, what she will do to survive may lead to the most shocking crimes of all. Joanna Cassidy (''Six Feet Under'') and Catherine Dent (''The Shield'') co-star in this intense action-thriller from the director of THE MARINE.

"I don't want your money, you got a car don't you...drive" Lorraine (Bello) is having a rough time. Her husband left her with her young son and she has no money. Her night begins with group therapy, then she spends the rest of the money she has on Bagel Bites and gas. It gets worse when Roy (Dorff) comes into her life. He wants a ride, and has a gun to make sure he gets one. Lorraine and her son are now forced to help him. This is a movie that could easily have been a cheesy TV drama. The fact that Bello & Dorff are the actors helps make it into a more tense and exciting thriller. This is the kind of movie that has you hooked 5 minutes in and you are tense and on the edge of your seat the entire time. Stuck between doing what you would think you would do, and what you should do keeps you thinking and engrossed the entire time. Nothing really amazing here, but one of the most tense and exciting thrillers I have seen in a while. Overall, a very good movie that won't disappoint and is very much worth watching. I give it a B+.

Before I write this review I take full responsibility for watching this film. It's my fault and I deserve what I got. I have always loved Stephen Dorff and he is like a bad drug I can't kick. With every release he makes his movies get worse and I KNOW this yet I keep giving them a try.

So I'm to blame for watching Carjacked. It's not even like I expect Stephen's movies to be good now. The last twenty have been terrible so I lost expectations back when he made Steal AKA Riders.

Sigh. What can I say about this movie? Okay, it's bad. Which I am sure we all know. It's not as bad as some of Stephen's movies but that's not a compliment seeing how awful some of his movies have been.

There are tons of problems with Carjacked. It's boring, it's predictable, it's slow, it's pathetic and I could go on forever.

SPOILER ALERT!

Roy (Dorff) carjacks Lorraine (Maria Bella, who I liked before seeing her in this and now I will run from her movies from now on) and her son Chad at a gas station. They spend the first hour of the movie bonding like they are on an inspirational field trip. At one time I expected them to start singing Kumbaya. A movie like this is supposed to be a thriller but it's hard to be on edge when the main character is chatting it up with her kidnapper like they're in Hawaii.

Lorraine never tried to get away until almost the end of the film. The direction was horrible but the character development was shameful. That's what I absolutely could not forgive.

At the beginning, Roy acts like Lorraine's best friend. He even seems compassionate about her ex-husband and the life she's led. Roy even takes to Chad. I mean it's obvious that he cares.

I liked this movie.

While much of the criticism of other reviewers is accurate, I don't think the movie deserves some of the harsh judgemental comments. There were some unexpected (admittedly unlikely or unrealistic) twists that kept the energy going throughout the film. The weirdest thing to me was when Lorraine reached the diner after escaping from Roy and did not ask for help or call 911, but it proved to be a necessary part of the plot.

There were other contrived momments, but hey, this is supposed to be entertainment, not a documentary, and is certainly no more ridiculous than some of the big blockbusters (eg. Titanic). This movie will not win any awards, but I found it to be very entertaining and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys action films (which, less face it, are traditionally riddled with ridiculous dialogue and plot devices).

This movie is actually pretty descent. It's not the best, but definitely not the worst for a movie that went straight to DVD. I would recommend this movie if nothing else is on. It sure passed the time and kept me entertained wondering what was going to happen even though it's predictable.

Maria Bello stars as Lorraine, a divorced mother who has trouble coping with life. She is unable to take charge of her life and blames herself for every misfortune that comes her way. While spending her last dollar at a convenience store on pizza bagels for her and her son, she gets carjacked by Roy, (Stephen Dorff) a somewhat understanding, yet terrifying bank robber who gets along great with her son Chad, who BTW needs a father figure. The movie takes you to a point where it can go a number of different ways and downhill would not have been my first choice, but that is how it went.

Good acting, although Mario Bello becomes less convincing as the plot turns unrealistic.

F-bomb, no sex, no nudity.

Being the understanding, affable, amiable, bank-robber he is, Stephen Dorff cuts his hostage, Maria Bello, some slack. Slack, unfortunately, also describes the tension in this film. The acting is of a high enough standard in the beginning, but the script is, at best, mediocre, and by the end of the film, the two leads are just turning in their performances by post.

Maria Bello is Lorraine Burton, a woman who has a lot on her mind, primarily an ex-husband who is trying to get custody of her young son Chad (Connor Hill). While stopped at a convenience store, she returns to her car to find Roy (Stephen Dorff), a bank robber on the run, in the back seat with a gun. Thus begins a strange journey, as Roy is bound for a rendezvous with his partner, several hours drive away.

Watching Carjacked is a strange experience that is disassociated from reality. Lorraine doesn't seem to be very seriously concerned about the safety of her son, engaging in some really strange conversations with her captor. She doesn't appear to be trying to trick or distract Roy, but seems to be generally engaged, as the writers seem to be enamored with displaying their talents for dialog. Lorraine is portrayed as someone who isn't the clearest thinker, as she mistakenly dials 411 instead of 911, when she has a brief opportunity to be alone. Like his mother, Chad doesn't seem to be the brightest kid, and displays little fear as well.

For a supposedly desperate man, Roy is one talkative kidnapper, and seemingly very interested in playing with Lorraine's head. After clearing a police roadblock, there would seem to be better and faster ways for him to get to his destination, but he still sticks with Lorraine and her clunker of a car. Only after Lorraine figures out a way to get her son out of danger, do things turn very nasty, and the film becomes something of a roller coaster. After Lorraine miraculously manages to avoid being incinerated, she sees Roy kidnapping a mother and daughter, and goes into action hero mode for what is one insane and extreme finish.
