A typical afternoon in the park turns into a nightmare for single mom Karla Dyson (Academy Award® winner Halle Berry) when her son suddenly disappears. Without a cell phone and knowing she has no time to wait for police help, Karla jumps in her own car and sets off in pursuit of the kidnappers. A relentless, edge-of-your seat chase ensues, where Karla must risk everything to not lose sight of her own son. In this tense, action-fueled thriller, from the producers of SALT and TRANSFORMERS, one mother's heroic attempt to take back her son leads her to ask herself how far she will go to save her child.

Critics Consensus: Kidnap strays into poorly scripted exploitation too often to take advantage of its pulpy premise -- or the still-impressive talents of its committed star.

Children in peril in tense, gripping Halle Berry thriller.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Kidnap is an extremely tense and intense thriller about a mom (Halle Berry) pursuing her kidnapped son. A child is taken from the park when his mother is briefly distracted, a scenario that could upset many parents. Expect several scenes of children in peril, such as a knife held to a child's throat and a child held from the open door of a moving vehicle. There are also guns and shooting, car crashes, hit/hurt pedestrians, and injured/killed motorists. Characters struggle, fight, choke each other, and hit each other with blunt objects; there's a little blood. A dog is shot. Language includes a use of "f--k," plus "s--t," "bitch," and more. Sex, consumerism, and substance use aren't issues. But the movie is relentlessly suspenseful and not for the easily distressed.
