Desperate Rescue

12 Certificate


Our Score
Shades of the Sally Field weepie Not without My Daughter echo through this routine thriller. Cast against type, Mariel Hemingway plays a distraught American mother who takes extreme measures when her Jordanian ex-husband kidnaps their daughter. Hemingway is competent in the lead role, although James Russo steals most of his scenes. The action is handled blandly but efficiently by TV-movie veteran Richard Colla.


A Jordanian man kidnaps his seven-year-old daughter and takes her back to his native country, prompting his ex-wife to enlist the aid of a crack anti-terrorist squad in a bid to steal the child back. Thriller, starring Mariel Hemingway, Jeff Kober, James Russo and Clancy Brown.
