Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: from its opening 'shot', Secuestro Express takes its captive audience at gunpoint on a heart-pounding tour of crime, corruption and class war in downtown Caracas.

- Anton Bitel, Film4, Thursday, June 24, 2010

Fresh: A well-intentioned copy but one that holds much promise for its first-time director.

Audience Reviews

4 stars

A very realistic feel of a story of a kidnapping. Impressive actiing all round, in particular Mia Maestro. The kidnapping gang are played by members of one of South America's most popular rap groups 'Vagos Y Maleantes' Gritty and action packed, this film will hold you from start to finish.

It's a dog-eat-dog world in Venezuela. A story that follows the trials of a group kidnappers as well as their kidnappees, with a nice dose of humour and social commentary.

Disconcerting and crude story that is feel so real. The acting is impressively good across, as well as the direction and the script was very good with some very memorable lines all throughout. "Secuestro Express" is quick, effective movie.
