Quote:
PRISONERS, from Oscar-nominated director Denis Villeneuve, stars Oscar nominees Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal in a story that poses the question: How far would you go to protect your child? Keller Dover (Jackman) is facing every parent's worst nightmare. His six-year-old daughter, Anna, is missing, together with her young friend, Joy, and as minutes turn to hours, panic sets in. The only lead is a dilapidated RV that had earlier been parked on their street. Heading the investigation, Detective Loki (Gyllenhaal) arrests its driver, Alex Jones (Paul Dano), but a lack of evidence forces the only suspect's release. Knowing his child's life is at stake, the frantic Dover decides he has no choice but to take matters into his own hands. But just how far will this desperate father go to protect his family? [Warner Bros.]

Fantastic reviews so far.

I really hated this script when I read it a couple years ago, but I guess I'll give it another chance, based on these reviews. It had some really weird, strong Christian undertones to it.

Really? Wouldn't get that from the trailer/content whatsoever.

The trailer gets me excited, plus the cast, so I'm intrigued -- looking forward to it. Reviews coming in helps too.

I know it's early still but I'm a little surprised at all of the good reviews. Think I'll be seeing this one.

I will def be checking this out. I like the trailer and Jackman should be entertaining even if the movie sucks.

Please tell me Terrance Howard is the bad guy.

I can't recall, but it's definitely not Dano.

this movie looked dumb as hell at first, but the more i hear about it the more intrigued i become. i'll see it but my expectations aren't too high, these early reviews are pretty encouraging though.

Eh, I doubt it. It's a stacked year in that category.

Really enjoyed this, though how they ended it was kind of cheap.

Most nerve-racking 2 1/2 hours I've ever had at a movie.

Deakins was superb as usual.

Everything I've read seems to say that it's a pretty solid movie except the ending blows.
