    Trade is a total misfire, a strange attempt at making a buddy movie featuring a morose Kevin Kline and a 17-year-old Mexican boy looking for his kidnapped sister. show more

    Trade unflinchingly sheds light on a heinous crime. Yes, it's tough to sit through. But don't let that keep you away. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Trade comes off like TV-movie sensationalism, sidetracked by distracting backstories and hard-to-swallow plot twists. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    The story of the victims on the road is harrowing, but the tale of the kind cop and the teenager with an attitude is a string of big brother clichés. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    Trade is an earnest attempt to dramatize the network of Internet sex "tunnels." Unfortunately, the film's horrific and important subject matter is distilled into a lackluster lump of generic buddy-movie/road-picture components. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    The story's incredible coincidences, lazy cynicism and easy ironies recast a real-life horror story as easy-to-dismiss melodrama, complete with sequential "happy" endings. show more

    But improbable situations, heavy reliance on coincidence and an improbable climax nearly tip the film into TV-movie territory. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    With a movie of this sort, the viewer expects to undergo something grueling and disturbing. Trade's inability to deliver that sort of visceral experience makes it unworthy of anyone's hard-earned dollars. show more

    Human trafficking is an awful societal issue, and Trade happens to be an awful movie about human trafficking. show more
