More Info:
  • Todd McCarthy

    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.

    Variety Full Review
  • Megan Lehmann

    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.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Robert K. Elder

    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.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Jack Mathews

    Trapped does have a fine ensemble of actors and, except for what may be the most outrageously idiotic and improbable ending in a few years, is not that bad a movie.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Rick Kisonak

    The first half of Luis (Angel Eyes) Mandoki's new thriller is as whiteknuckle, nerve-wracking as they come. The second is such a mishmash of overblown action and gaping plotholes, it's hard to believe it's the work of the same director.

  • Chuck Wilson

    Mandoki's a pro, but a juiceless one, with only enough energy to reach the finish line, which becomes the viewer's goal as well.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Dennis Lim

    Luis Mandoki's brisk hack job pushes no more buttons than Connie Chung Tonight -- though, for better or worse, it's perverse enough to stage the traumatic event as a spouse swap.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    Pointless little kidnapping thriller.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    By the time the high-octane ending arrived I didn't even care what happened to the kid.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    The most frightening sight, though, is that of Theron and Bacon, good actors trapped in the muck of making a living.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    Bacon makes an appropriately detestable villain; unfortunately, he's the most interesting character here. As for Love, well, this puts her one career rung closer to ''Hollywood Squares.''

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Stephen Cole

    There is no pleasure in watching a child suffer. Just embarrassment and a vague sense of shame. Watching Trapped simply makes us feel guilty.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    Not the kind of unwatchable mess you might assume a film withheld from reviewers' scrutiny would be. It is, however, something equally unfortunate: a mess you'd rather not be watching.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    A tone of lurid idiocy permeates Trapped, a Z-grade woman-in-peril thriller starring scenery-chewing Kevin Bacon.

  • Gregory Weinkauf

    Another disposable kidnapping thriller.
