There is severeal disparitions during the movie, but we don't know if there they are kidnapped before getting killed, but it's kind of implicit. By the end of the movie, one character is actually held in a shack and tortured (his badly injured and mutilated but he steel breathing).

**with as few spoilers as possible**

Unsuspecting spectators are forcibly taken by mysterious means and killed soon afterwards. Not traditional “kidnapping” but definitely abduction.

Loads of times. The main character is constantly being kidnapped, and most of the secondary characters have also been kidnapped at least once. It's "kid friendly" and they usually rescue themselves or are rescued by friends; but sometimes it's played more seriously.

There are two English hostages in the beginning episodes, but it’s mainly played for comedy as Stede refuses to actually harm them in any way. (SPOILERS) In the season one finale, two members of the Revenge crew are forced to join Blackbeard’s crew via force and intimidation.
