Secuestro Express (Foreign Venezuelan Action 2005)

This movie was another random one. The story takes place in Venezuela where a group of thugs takes a wealthy guy and his chica hostage. They all drive around town, getting into more trouble as the baddies wait around for ransom money from the girl's father.

From a caption at both the beginning and end of this film, I’m guessing that the movie's plot was somehow supposed to be some sort of political statement concerning the extreme differences between the rich and poor in that country. Again, this is just a guess because the majority of what I saw had nothing deep to it. It was a normal, semi-violent kidnapping story with a few humorous plot twists.

I didn’t find anything special about this one or the way that it was filmed. I'll place this in the quickly forgotten box.
