"Kidnap" features an extraordinary and realistic moving story about 4 friends who could succumb to poverty no more and turned to criminal act of "kidnapping' with intent of getting rich overnight.

Much to their disappointment and dismay, the plot went horribly wrong. In the end, they were caught and sentenced to death by hanging.

Hu Chin played a sweet and attractive showgirl who fell head over heels in love with Loh Lieh who was the mastermind of this criminal act. Hu Chin's splendid performance gets my 2 thumbs up!

"Kidnap" is a compelling and competent action thriller and again, is another story reflecting social realities: power, money, poverty, humiliation..........
