This is the best example of a good movie with a crap ending. One of the best movie ensemble I've seen. If you want a thriller-heavy drama movie, this would be good for you. Brilliant cinematography!

Prisoners is a excellent, dark film about the kidnapping of two young girls. Hugh Jackman is great as the father of one of the girls, who will do anything to get his daughter back home safe. Jake Gyllenhaal matches him with a great performance as the lead detective on the case. The atmosphere is gloomy throughout and matches the tone of the movie perfectly, One of the best films of 2013.

Best Paced Film Of 2013

Edge of your seat suspense thriller. There wasn't anything I didn't enjoy about this movie except for the fact that I was a little to tense and on edge to go to bed after finishing last night. The story of two little girls who disappear is a parents worst nightmare. But the edge of your seat suspense this movie keeps you in for 2 and a half hours goes beyond that initial horrible feeling. You might think that two and half hours is a little to long but it felt just right to me. It was just long enough to make you feel that dread and horror that all the characters in the movie are feeling. That feeling of never finding the girls or worse finding what you don't want to find. That is all thanks to the great direction and pace director Denis Villeneuve gives the movie. The other key part of th...

Prisoners review

Mr. Keller Dover's and Franklin Birch's daughters, Anna and Joy, becomes missing while Alex Jones is a prime suspect. Detective Loki heads the investigation. Everything from the acting, story, background music and camera direction were spotless. Only concern this reviewer had were the instances where "luck" played a huge part in keeping the plot moving, camera shots that prolonged the length, a concrete conclusion. lack of better continuation and a better development/history of the antagonists. Unpredictable but one has to be patient to see its results and the meticulous direction. Screenplay was filled with quotable lines such as: "Be ready...I'm proud of you son." "This ain't right." He's a good man." and "Pray for the best, prepare for the worse yeah?" The picture reminded me ...

Review: Prisoners

Mysteries nowadays rarely establish the perfect atmospheric uneasiness that Prisoners, an absorbing and thought-provoking motion picture, does. An arguable exception could be made for this year's Side Effects, which was good but not exactly as terrific as it could have been. From its outstanding cinematography to its exceptionally relentless yet grounded performances, Prisoners is an excellent film. Immediately engaging, tension-heavy, dark, disturbing, and oozing with intensity, the film breaks through the gates as one of the best to be released all year.

The film was directed by Denis Villeneueve, who had made the almost equally excellent film Incendies a few years back. He really knocks it out of the park with Prisoners. Here is a film that grabs you both viscerally and emotionally...

I wasn't too thrilled by the trailers - but it looks like this is one I will have to check out as reviews have been positive. I probably won't catch it in theaters, but it has a spot reserved on my "to watch" list now.
