Kidnap

This compact thriller is less a story about a mother’s (Halle Berry) enduring love and sacrifice for her abducted young son (Sage Correa) than a long drive in an amazingly durable minivan. Director Luis Prieto and screenwriter Knate Lee have no interest in character development and motivation. Berry merely reverts to primeval maternal-warrior instinct, and the race is on to catch up with the cretinous kidnappers (Chris McGinn and Lew Temple).

Watch out for: Gun and physical violence, considerable vehicular mayhem, fleeting profanity and rough language.

Rated: A-III, adults; MPAA: R
