Storyline

When Scottish young gentleman David Balfour's father dies, he leaves school to collect his inheritance from uncle Ebenezer, who in turn sells the boy as a future slave to a pirate ship. When staunch Stuart dynasty supporter Alan Breck Stewart accidentally boards the ship, he takes David along on his escape back to Edinburgh. They part and meet again repeatedly, mutually helpful against the Redcoats and respectful, although David is loyal to the English crown, but learns about its cruel oppression. Both ultimately face their adversaries. Written by KGF Vissers

Best Version Yet!
8 January 2007 | by GunnSee all my reviews

This version of Kidnapped boasts the best cast yet, led by Armand Assante, Brian McCardie (Rob Roy), Brendan Gleeson (Braveheart), David Kelly (Waking Ned Devine) and a brilliant portrayal by Patrick Malahide as Uncle Ebenezer. It moves along smoothly and quickly and never drags. It was filmed in Ireland which fills in perfectly for Scotland. Although it looks exactly like Scotland, I wonder why they didn't film there; production costs I'm guessing. At any rate, production values are superb, the music score is fine and director Ivan Passer did an exceptional job. McCardie is perfect as David Balfour and is adept at both serious and comical scenes. Assante is as good a swashbuckler as ever there was. I've been waiting for years for this to come out on DVD and now it has arrived (1/2007). I very highly recommend this film.
