Not as bad as some make out
Just before I wrote this review, I looked up Carjacked on IMDb and happened to notice some of the reviews on there. Pretty much all of them gave it 1/10! Now, I’m not going to say that Carjacked is a classic or that it offers anything that you haven’t really seen before, but I would stress that it’s a lot better than a 1/10.
Single mother Maria Bello stops off for petrol (or ‘gas’ as they say in America) and gets carjacked by Stephen Dorff, taking her and her son hostage. What follows is basically a ‘cat and mouse’ sort of situation where she tries to protect her son and/or escape at the same time.
There you have it – nothing new. However, it’s still not as bad as a 1/10. All three lead actors play their parts well. Special mention to Stephen Dorff who flits between charming and psychotic quite nicely. Mario Bello does her best to escape, but, as is pointed out at the beginning of the film, has a history of doing the wrong thing at the wrong time, so that kind of excuses some of her subsequent bad decisions she makes throughout the rest of the movie. Even the kid, who is naturally squeaky clean, is actually not totally unlikeable and annoying (like most kids in films).
So, there you have it, nothing new, but nothing bad. Although I probably wouldn’t watch it again any time soon, it kept me entertained for an hour and a half.
We should all be feminists. #HeForShe
When considering the way women are treated in the world today, it will be important to distinguish between gender equality and gender equity. Equality, where different genders are seen as equal in value and ability, CAN ONLY BE REALISED VIA CHANGING ATTITUDES, whereas, equity, referring to fairness under the law can be achieved through policy change. Carjacked does just that – playing its role in effecting attitude change.
Presently, the Gender imbalance in the world is one global menace I’m worried and angry about, and you should too, as there is a never-ceasing conspicuous disparity in access to opportunities and decision-making power for women and men. Changing the world is hard work but the crew and cast of Carjacked (perchance unknown to them) is championing the cause of gender equality.
Globally, women have fewer opportunities for economic participation, less access to basic and higher education, greater health and safety risks, and less political representation than men. Though women account for over 50% of the population, they only own a few percent of the world’s economic power.
I liked the fact the judge who decided over the couple’s case was a woman. Yes, women empowerment is a critical aspect of achieving gender equality. It includes increasing a woman’s sense of self-worth, her decision-making power, her access to opportunities and resources, her power and control over her own life inside and outside the home, and her ability to effect change. Guaranteeing the rights of women and giving them opportunities to maximize their full potential is critical not only for attaining gender balance, but also for meeting a vast range of international development goals including unadulterated democracy. So, in attaining gender parity, women’s economic and political empowerment is imperative.
I will see Carjacked over and over again. It is a classic. Women’s rights are human rights.
