Welcome to the month of leprechauns and 4 leaf clovers. We have made it all the way to March.  Today I will be reviewing the movie Kidnap. The movie is about a mother who leaves her son for only 2 minutes, but then he is gone. She watches as he is taken away in a car by to strangers. She won’t stop until she finds her son.

I give this movie 2/10. The movie has no logic. She leaves her son alone to get on the phone. She doesn’t even realize that her son is screaming and she doesn’t even turn around for one second. She then doesn’t go to the police when she first sees him. She tries to chase them down in her minivan. The police also don’t realize that she and the abductor are speeding and dodging cars own the road.

The movie did terrible on its opening weekend. It only made about half of its budget. It started with 21,000,000 as their normal budget, then it made 10,016,323 on its opening weekend. I am not surprised by the original budget because you can tell by the trailer it is just her driving for an hour and a half.

The trailer is almost as bad as the movie. Trailers should show important parts that interest the watcher. It should bring them in. I can tell that the movie is her driving because there are no important parts to put in the trailer. The trailer is the kid getting abducted then her driving around chasing the abductor.

IMDB gave this movie a 5.9 out of 10, personally, I give the movie a 3 out of 10. I gave the movie this rating because it has no logic, action, and no excitement into this movie.  I do not suggest this movie to anyone
