Review by Suzanne 9/24/06
Just based on the pilot, I would say that "Kidnapped" is a very
exciting show that grabs you right away and hardly ever slows down (sort of like
"24"). It has excellent acting and a complex storyline that keeps you guessing.
Movie star Timothy Hutton stars as a rich business man, Conrad Cain, whose son
is kidnapped. Even though the son has a bodyguard, he is taken in a well-planned
way. The kidnappers are professionals who put a lot of money and planning into
their scheme, so it seems that Cain must have some secrets. Or it could be his
wife, played by Dana Delaney, who has the secrets. Either way, it's clear that
this one kidnapping is only the tip of the iceburg.
Cain hires a professional rescuer named Knapp (Jeremy Sisto), who seems to be a
former government agent. He successfully rescues rich people's kids and doesn't
have to care about rules or whether he shoots people. The kid's bodyguard,
played by Mykelti Williamson, is left for dead, and Knapp's people dump him in a
hospital so that news of the kidnapping won't get out. He is discovered by his
wife's friend, a retiring FBI agent named Latimer King. These are all very
colorful and interesting characters. King and the rest of the FBI find out about
the kidnapping and get involved in helping Cain, even though he doesn't want
their help (and nor does Knapp). They are all forced to work together.
I plan to keep watching this show because it's just full of action and layers,
and the acting is superb. I hope it lives up to the pilot's promise! I can't say
anything bad about it. It seems to run twice a week, so you should be able to
catch it easily.
