    Synopsis


    Prisoners
    A small-town carpenter turns vigilante in order to rescue his abducted daughter and her best friend in this thriller starring Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal. Six-year-old Anna and her friend Joy have vanished on Thanksgiving without a trace. Devastated, Anna's father Keller (Jackman) makes note of a run-down RV that had been parked on their street at the exact time the girls went missing. When the driver, Alex Jones (Paul Dano) is swiftly arrested by Detective Loki (Gyllenhaal), it starts to look like the lead will pay off. Alex, however, is quickly released due to lack of evidence, sending Keller into a frenzy as he realizes that if Anna isn't found soon, odds are she never will be. Knowing that time is not on his side, and ignoring Detective Loki's pleas to leave the case to the pros, Keller risks sacrificing his own freedom in a bid to locate the girls before it's too late. Melissa Leo, Maria Bello, Terrence Howard, and Viola Davis co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      A Fincher-esque Mystery/Thriller

      Posted

      Canadian auteur Denis Villeneuve (Incendies. Polytechnique) gets his chance at big Hollywood filmmaking with a dark crime thriller that weaves itself with enough mystery to keep you guessing until the end. Dark and brooding, the story tells the tale of a young girl and her friend that have gone missing and the only prospects of finding them lie within a young man, and possible perpetrator, who is appears to be nothing more than a simpleton. Whether this is true or not is all a part of the mystery, Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal and Paul Dano are the main players in the ordeal, though Paul Dano's role puts him in a position with little dialogue and just as much screen time, but this doesn't stop him from performing with the same gusto as his counterparts, and all three actors do a fantastic job of putting the entire plot into a pressure cooker of emotions that rings throughout the entire film. Supported by a cast of equally excellent actors: Terrance Howard, Viola Davis, Maria Bello and Melissa Leo - none of which go to waste. Each supporting player has their place in the story to add balance to the plot and each individual plays their part perfectly. This film has a Fincher-esque feel to it all, dark and very well paced, this film makes its mark in the Crime/Mystery genre with the likes of David Fincher's Seven and Zodiac. Recommended for those who enjoy their mysteries cloaked in the shadows and never really in control, as everything spirals out of control.

      GRIPPING DRAMA AT ITS BEST

      Prisoners is a more eclectic, divisive film than I was anticipating, and not for the reasons its trailers suggest. Waxing between intimate drama and complex procedural, it's nearly ripped in two. Villenevue forges a gripping balance, though, and doesn't take the easy road, even when traveling winding, twisting paths with which cinephiles will be most familiar. Jackman, Gyllenhaal and their co-stars are uniformly excellent as well, Deakins' cinematography is a character in and of itself, and the story of the Kellers and the Birches is the stuff of every parent's worst nightmares. Which brings us to Warner's Blu-ray release. Slim supplemental package aside, the Blu-ray edition of Prisoners is a strong one, with a striking video presentation and immerssive DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track.

      A collection of Academy Award worthy performances!

      My daughter recommended the film "Prisoners" to me, and I enjoyed it from start to finish. Each character is perfectly cast - in particular, Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal. Their interpretations of Keller Dover and Loki respectively warranted Oscar nominations, if not Honors outright. Melissa Leo is equally fantastic. Denis Villeneuve obviously had a clear vision of the final product, and that translates into every frame. Highly recommended!

      One of the best movies I have ever seen!

      Jake Gyllenhaal and Hugh Jackmans performances were outstanding! The plot, the writing, the little twists were amazing! This movie feels so real when watching it you wont want to pause it. It's very emotional the intensity of it the fear off it... you can feel the pain and anger both Jake and Hugh felt. Definitely one of the best movies I have ever watched. It's a movie you have to own. The only thing that I wish it had was a 3d version of it. But the movie is absolutely incredible in everyway!

      Great Thriller

      Oscar nominated and acclaimed director Denis Villeneuve is one of the best working directors today. Prisoners is the story of a man who takes matters into his own hands, and the detective who is searching for the man's daughter and her best friend. Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal give excellent performances in these roles. With the Blu-Ray, the cinematography by Roger Deakins stands out more than it did in theaters in 2013.

      This movie is fantastic! It was very suspenseful. I wasn't sure what to expect when I went into the theater but when I walked out I knew that I had witness a terrific story line. I liked it so much that I decided to buy it. It is well worth your time to watch. A kidnapping story that revolves itself around the Thanksgiving holiday in a damp and dreary setting to allow it to be more eerie. I hope everyone who watches it enjoys it as much as I did.

      This movie is an intriguing, fast-paced thriller with very good acting and storylines. Hugh Jackman, gives staggering performance that's unlike anything he has done before, acts with an unbridled rage, and he invests every snarl and rasp of that anger with meaning. The movie keeps you on the edge of your seat right up until the end. Check out this movie and you will not be disappointed!

      This movie put a new twist on an unfortunate incident. Showed how far a parent will go when the agencies designed to protect them won't. Very good storyline and wonderful ending. This movie is a perfect teaching tool to show young kids to pay attention to their surrounds and to watch out for their younger siblings. This isn't the 70s, people are truly crazy.
