“You took the wrong kid.”
I finally got to watch Kidnap with my family last night. I like Halle Berry since she’s such a beautiful actress. Unfortunately, I have to say that I didn’t like the movie. I mean, it was good and all, but it just didn’t get to me. The plot was simple, and the motive of the kidnappers was unclear.
The movie is about a single mother named Karla Dyson who goes to a park on a typical afternoon when unexpectedly the kidnappers snatch her young son Frankie.
I knew I wasn’t going to like the movie since the time the chase started, since the time Halle Berry started to repeatedly say, “Oh God! Oh God! Oh God!” and since the time I felt she over-reacted a bit. The movie was smooth but for some reason, I just didn’t feel satisfied after watching it. Although, my mom and dad liked the movie. Probably because it’s Halle Berry and probably because they like chasing and a slight-tension stuff.
It kinda annoyed me the way the camera directions were but I’m not complaining.
Also, I’m pretty sure there are people who will without doubt help if someone shouts that her kid is being kidnapped and not just ignore her and leave…They should have showed what was reality.
I did acknowledge her mother’s instinct when she had no idea which route to take or what to do next to save her poor kid. Indeed, a mother’s instinct is stronger than any others.
Anyway, there isn’t really much to tell about this movie but there’s no harm in watching it. It’s not that bad. My parents liked it so I guess your parents might like it too. I’m just too conflicted whether to like it or not. But I’m just going to go with my heart and gut.
My Rating: 2/5
