      desma p Great family entertainment Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A young lad teams up with a brash fleeing army rebel and take on a succession of dangerous adventures Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member Heavy Leiden cast of great actors,tell the tale of The English and Scotish,and a young mans belief that an innocent man should not die,so he puts his own life at risk in order to free him, something like that anyway, Any enjoyable film, if you can get past the bad scottish accents Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member As a history lesson about the Jacobite Rebellion this fails, but as a movie for the whole family it's entertaining and a good cast makes it fun to watch.....Michael Caine is Alan Breck, determined that the Stuarts should have retained the throne of England, who befriends young David Balfour (Lawrence Douglas) and sets off on a journey with him to Edinburgh, sharing a variety of adventures along the way.....in a limited role, Donald Pleasance added to the fun of the movie as the curmudgeonly Ebenezer Balfour (David's uncle).....it was all working together quite well, I thought, until the very end of the movie, and I thought too much was left hanging with the way it concluded......so an entertaining but historically inaccurate movie ended with a bit of a letdown..... Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member Its those nasty redcoats & highland bandits--Entertaining elegiac adventure!! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Entertaining swashbuckler with Michael Caine, Jack Hawkins, Trevor Howard, Freddie Jones and Donald Pleasence.

      Myles Standish St. Louis Post-Dispatch This one is first-rate, directed by Delbert Mann as an adventure tale combining both swashbuckling and burning patriotic idealism, filmed against the beauty of the Scottish highlands and with some excellent character portraits. Oct 25, 2023 Full Review Robert Sullivan Los Angeles Free Press At times the acting is wooden, and the film gets off to a slow start, but once it gets rolling, it is "family entertainment" that is truly entertaining. Jan 8, 2020 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy Benefits greatly from stellar performances but struggles with its cumbersome storyline. Rated: 2.5/4 Jun 22, 2019 Full Review Tony Mastroianni Cleveland Press Kidnapped has been made with a high degree of professionalism, good taste and literacy. It is intelligent and superior in every way. Even the smallest roles have been well cast with superb actors. Nov 19, 2018 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews A good taste family drama. Rated: B- May 5, 2015 Full Review Read all reviews
