There always seems to be some low budget mystery movie that will pop up on my streaming device as a recommendation. One of the many that does was this Canadian film Abducted. It’s not the best mystery you’ll see, but it’s also entertaining enough to work.
Abducted (2007) Incendo TV Film Review
Married for years now to a husband who is looking to rise to local and then statewide fame, Melanie Stone (Sarah Wynter) is in something of a rut. She stands by his side for each campaign event and even teaches a class at the prison where he’s warden. But through it all she gives up more and more of her goals. Despite believing she loves him, she also has suspicions that she’s no longer the only woman in his life.
During one of the work release days where prisoners work on their farm, one of them abducts Melanie, using her as his ticket to freedom. Jack (Andrew Walker) seems to have purpose in taking Melanie, but is it really for what everyone assumes?‘ABDUCTED’ IS ONE INTERESTING MYSTERY OF FAULTS #MYSTERYMOVIE #MOVIEREVIEW #ANDREWWALKER #SARAHWYNTER Click To Tweet
In addition to this being a recommendation for me based likely on the fact that I’ve seen other Incendo productions, this does also have Andrew Walker. Many of us know him from Hallmark films, which is something this most definitely is not. That said, he’s still good in this one and if you’ve seen 24, you’ll recognize Sarah Wynter, too. Wynter isn’t the best in the role just because she plays the role a little too fearful. I understand where the fear comes from, but it’s a bit too “Stockholm” feeling.
If you did like prior productions from this company, Abducted isn’t a bad one. None have been dynamite or memorable in award-winning kind of ways, but they do entertain for 90 minutes. I’ll also admit I say this from the perspective of someone who, generally, doesn’t mind made for TV films. (And Abducted is, surprisingly, much better than another recent film, Pretty Little Stalker, I saw on Netflix.) The premise is good, some of the details just trip up it being polished.
