KIDNAPPED is a subtitled Italian thriller in which thieves take a woman and a man hostage when a heist goes wrong.

Threat

There is strong sexual threat directed at the woman, as the men make several references to her attractiveness and play with the opening of her blouse. In one scene her skirt is cut and she is forced to urinate in front of the jeering men. There is no nudity, but a stream of liquid is seen running down between her legs. In another scene a man pushes his hand under the woman's skirt and it is implied that he exposes himself. It is implied that the woman is raped as a man is seen thrusting on top of her. There is no nudity in the scene.

Other issues include multiple uses of strong language ('f**k') and some scenes of strong violence as people are shot or stabbed and left with blood on their skin or clothes.
