Kidnap (2017)

Luis Prieto directs Halle Berry, Chris McGinn and Sage Correa in this thriller where a single mom chases the fleeing car that holds her abducted child.

There’s one or two quite decent set pieces here – Berry desperately cutting across hard shoulders and central reservations to keep up with her unknown nemesis on a tangle of freeway off ramps works well. That’s 10 minutes of film though and the rest of the action is pretty blah. Berry has never been the best actress, so maybe a film that relies on her being the sole, lonely focus on screen for quite so much runtime wasn’t the best choice for all concerned. Including me. I choose to watch it. And it just about did its late night, high concept job. Adequate.
