‘Prisoners’ Movie Review [VIDEO]


‘Prisoners’ YouTube

When Keller Dover’s (Hugh Jackman) daughter and her friend go missing, he takes the law into his own hands. The police continue to follow all the leads as the pressure begins to mount. How far would you go to protect your family?

I’ll have to admit the suspense never really lets up during the course of this film starring Hugh Jackman (Keller Dover), Jake Gyllenhaal (Detective Loki) and Viola Davis (Nancy Birch).

Pay close attention as this puzzle unravels as there are hidden layers of depth to the crime at hand.

The film is very realistic as the Birch’s and the Dover’s celebrate Thanksgiving together when after dinner their two youngest daughters become missing and the frantic search begins in this riveting film.

Their elder children tell them of a mysterious RV that was parked just down the street, when the young girls disappear so does the RV.

Police soon find the camper with Alex Jones (Paul Dano) behind the wheel. Alex has the mentality of a 10-year-old and tries fleeing when surrounded by authorities. After Detective LokiĀ  begins his interrogation of Alex, he is less convinced that Alex was a part of the abduction.

Days pass, Loki and Keller Doller work in opposite directions on the investigation. Keller is convinced that Alex Jones was a part of the abduction and kidnaps the frail and challenged Jones and tortures him for days in an attempt to extract answers.

Detective Loki in the meantime is following up on leadsĀ  that open up possibilities of a crime where multiple persons may be involved.

The film is rated ‘R’ and runs 153 minutes, so load up on the refreshments. ‘Prisoners’ is now playing at The Parkwood Cinemas in Waite Park, simply click on the link for showtimes.

I give the film a strong 3.5 out of 5, the film was longer than it needs to be, especially with scenes involving Hugh Jackman and his captive. Overall the suspense is good, the storyline is good and well put together, the cinematography is good as well.

Parental Guide: It’s rated ‘R’ for a reason, it includes a good share of violence, alcohol usage and profanity.
