Kidnap. Luis Prieto. 2017. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Lean and exciting, but doesn't have the strangeness or unexpected flourishes I hope for. Reviews have focused on the film's "stupidity." And indeed, a movie about a woman single-handedly taking down a child trafficking ring, is stupid. It does have a logic, however: when faced with existential threat, other considerations become tiny. Loose ends pile up, but the film's thrust continues barreling toward true north.
