    A pretty skillfully handled domestic thriller about a criminal activity that, while always upsetting, is especially noxious now due to the too many recent tragic and highly publicized instances of it.
  2. 63
    A tightly drawn, propulsive thriller with some pleasingly unexpected kinks in the tale and a couple of believable performances from Charlize Theron and Kevin Bacon in the leads.
  3. Another disposable kidnapping thriller.
  4. 50
    By the time the high-octane ending arrived I didn't even care what happened to the kid.
  5. Pointless little kidnapping thriller.
  6. Splashes its drama all over the screen, subjecting its audience and characters to action that feels not only manufactured, but also so false you can see the filmmakers' puppet strings.
  7. 20
    A tone of lurid idiocy permeates Trapped, a Z-grade woman-in-peril thriller starring scenery-chewing Kevin Bacon.

    Truly like the movie! Kevin Bacon is, as always, brilliant! Dakota Fanning was outstanding, and Charlize Theron was good too! Not great, but a good movie! I movie everybody can enjoy! Expand
