However, there is no such thing as a foolproof plan. Now, with a bag crammed with cash, a trail of dead bodies, and nearly every police officer in town after them, gang leader, Sabri, and his two violent partners-in-crime find themselves cornered. And, forced to think up a desperate, last-minute plan to stay alive, the ruthless criminals resort to adding kidnapping to the already heavy charges. As a result, a young brunette, an unfortunate father, and his gravely ill four-year-old daughter become hostages, as the trigger-happy gangsters engage in a frantic escape across the country over the course of a single day. But in this hopeless fight for survival, nothing is what it seems.
Plot: After a bank job goes badly wrong, three desperate criminals take a young woman and a father and child hostage – it’s the beginning of a frantic and violent road trip that not all of them will survive.

Like most horror/cult cinema fanatics, I don’t like remakes. So when I heard there was going to be remake of one of the greatest movies of my all-time favorite director, I knew from beforehand that I would be even more skeptical than usually the case with remakes. “Cani Arrabbiati”, a.k.a “Rabid Dogs” or “Kidnapped”, was an ambitious Poliziotteschi/Euro-Crime project by the almighty Italian director Mario Bava (the most genius director who ever lived) and his son Lamberto in 1974, but due to legal issues and production company bankruptcies, the film sadly only got finished in 1997 long after Mario’s death and the career peaks of Lamberto. Still, in spite of the juridical issues, it was one of the absolute highlights in its kind. I watched the remake (original French title: “Enragés”) at the Brussels International Film Festival and I must say I was pleasantly surprised. Although by no means an exceptional or astounding film, but nevertheless a solid and compelling thriller with a tense atmosphere from start to finish as well as intriguing characters, gritty action sequences and an exhilarating soundtrack. Sabri is the getaway driver of a violent bank heist, but their scheme goes awry almost straight from the beginning. Sabri, along with his three companions, must dump the conspicuous getaway car and blend into the crowds of a shopping mall. But their leader is badly hurt and the blood trail that he leaves behind puts all the city’s police forces back on their tail. While the number of casualties disturbingly mounts, the gangsters take an attractive woman hostage and run back out into the streets. They stop another vehicle, an inconspicuous old grey Volvo, which also give them two more hostages; a father who was on his way to the hospital with his unconscious 4-year-old daughter for a lifesaving kidney transplant. This is still only just the beginning of a very long, intense and nightmarish journey with numerous obstacles, deadly confrontations and unforeseen surprises. Although the trio of fugitive hoodlums succeeds fairly well in coming across as cruel and menacing (particularly Vincent played by François Arnaud) they honestly aren’t even half as nihilistic, loathsome and vile as the thugs in Bava’s original. Compared to Blade or Thirty-Two of the 1974 film, these guys are merely rabid puppies instead of dogs and thus also the overall tone of “Enragés” is less unsettling due to this. The violence is quite explicit but not too shocking, and only a couple of scenes are truly memorable, like the stop at the gas station or the showdown during the feast of the bear town-festival. The climax, however, is very well-handled and in case you’re not familiar with the story you definitely will be dumbfounded, as there’s no way anyone could predict this type of plot-twist. The acting performances are more than adequate, with respectable roles for Lambert Wilson and the still extremely attractive Virginie Ledoyen as the hostages, but my personal favorite aspect of “Enragés” was undoubtedly the soundtrack. The eerie and tense tunes are often reminiscent of a Goblin or giallo soundtrack, and near the end there’s also a beautiful choir version of Radiohead legendary song “Creep” (which, I think, was also used in “The Social Network”)
A bit bland
Now I haven’t seen the “original” (1974, title can be found here on IMDb), but I did quite like the movie they made here. It kind of works , even if of course some characters could’ve “acted” differently for a different outcome .. but what fun would that have been? Also it does all make sense in a weird … sense.
The acting is more than decent and the suspense is pretty good, and might be able to keep you on the edge of your seat. You do want to know where this is going. The end might be a deal breaker for some (or rather the resolution in general), but it was fitting to the movie and how it developed … Since I haven’t seen the original, which people seem to really like (and where the characters worked better, especially one that is really crucial), I can’t comment on that other than to say that it does feel a bit cheap and bland. You can still have fun with it, especially if you’re unaware of the other movie I reckon
