The film “Seized” showcases a gripping narrative of a former special forces agent, Nero, whose life is thrown into chaos when his son is kidnapped. He is forced into a deadly game of eliminating dangerous criminals to save his son. This premise echoes the 1985 action film “Commando,” where Arnold Schwarzenegger’s character, John Matrix, a retired elite Black Ops Commando, launches a one-man war to rescue his kidnapped daughter. Both films revolve around a central theme of a father’s desperate struggle to save his child, employing their particular set of skills honed from a life of combat and espionage. The protagonists are thrust into a race against time, eliminate their enemies to reach their ultimate goal: the safe return of their child. While “Seized” does not explicitly cite “Commando” as its inspiration, there are some parallels in the plot of a lone warrior taking on an army to protect family. Nero in “Seized” is as relentless and a resourceful hero as John Matrix’s character, both embodying the archetype of a warrior pushed to the edge for the sake of family. But “Seized” stands on its own as a modern action thriller. The spirit of a father’s love, the tension of a ticking clock, and the exhilaration of combat all contribute to the enduring appeal of this narrative theme.
