Lack of good storyline.
A movie that not only functions as a solid scarefest but a razor-sharp satire.
A terrific literary drama and character piece that shows how the process of creating art can be seen differently by those doing it and those looking at it from the outside.
An old-fashioned movie made with new-fashioned finesse.
High level performances and directing this product is a result of a merger of the high levels of skill involved, brilliantly structured and put together this account of investigation and reaction is wonderful and heartbreaking in equal measure. The performances are out of this world and the climax is incredible, an all time favourite
Denis Villeneuve didn't debut with Prisoners, but it was this movie that put him on the map as one of the most exciting new talents to come around in sometime. Prisoners is about a pair of girls who are abducted which leads to an investigation and search effort by the father of one girl played superbly by Hugh Jackman. This is a tough but rewarding film to sit through and the pacing is good- you will be transfixed throughout. The acting is superb and everyone from Terence Howard and Jake Gyllenhaal to Paul Dano and Melissa Holly shine, but the star act is Jackman who should have received more accolades for his turn as the distraught father in this movie. Cinematography is stunning as is the direction.
I have been watching many Mystery movies lately and this movie is a must watch. The acting is done superbly by both Huge Jackman and Jake. Huge performing a serious roll really stands out. Also the way movie progress is really good. Its a slow pace movie making suspense and thrill come into play and till the end you remain who is going to be it.
An intense film with a most memorable powerhouse performance from Hugh Jackson. The best acted film I've seen in a long while, gripping to the very end!A must see!
