Kidnap

If mystery fascinates you, then this can serve as a perfect weekend watch for you! Directed by Luis Prieto, the movie revolves around a typical thriller movie where in the child of a single mother gets kidnapped and engages in a negotiation to save to her young son's life.

The movie seems to offer the story of a regular thriller plot, hence you must read the reviews before you book your tickets for this movie!

IGN

The problem though is that the first 40 minutes of Kidnap is one of the worst stretches of any film. The editing and pacing is sloppy, and Halle Berry is forced to give one of the lamest monologues in which she awkwardly and lengthily prays to God that she hasn’t lost sight of a car on the freeway, the same one in which her son has been kidnapped and forced into by two mysterious, deplorable human beings.

AV Club

'Kidnap' is an asinine child-abduction thriller spliced with a touch of the early Steven Spielberg TV movie Duel, and the most likable thing about it is that it is utter unabashed garbage. 

Variety

The implication is that Berry’s character, Karla Dyson, isn’t like other parents, and yet, what makes “Kidnap” so compelling is that she behaves exactly the way you think you might under the same circumstances. The challenge of a film like “Kidnap” is to put audiences in Karla’s head, bypassing distractions to focus on the kind of spur-of-the-moment decisions that might plausibly result in getting Frankie back.

The Hollywood Reporter

The limits of maternal instinct are relentlessly tested in Kidnap, a tightly wound actioner that draws on Halle Berry’s intense performance to power this fast-paced feature. Despite its rather generic TV-movie premise, a clever script and consistently gratifying plot twists provide plenty of momentum that could propel Aviron Pictures' late-summer release to decent returns among audiences weary of a season of studio misfires.
