    Synopsis


    The Captive
    Years after his young daughter vanished without a trace from the back seat of his truck, a father receives newfound hope that she is alive and being held in captivity in this drama from Academy Award-nominated director Atom Egoyan. Matthew (Ryan Reynolds) and Tina (Mireille Enos) were a happy couple before their daughter Cassandra was taken from them. In the aftermath of the tragedy, their relationship began to dissolve. Years later, detectives Nicole (Rosario Dawson) and Jeffrey (Scott Speedman) are investigating online activity by pedophiles when they discover recent images of Cass. Convinced this is proof-positive his daughter is still alive, desperate father Matthew vows to ensure her safe return even if it means risking his own life. Kevin Durand, Alexia Fast, and Bruce Greenwood co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Good movie for parents with young children

      This movie will not be on my list of all time favorites but should be viewed by young parents. It portrays an event that could easily happen to anyone not cautious in tending to children when on the streets. It's a kidnapping horror acted out in good detail with a surprise ending! It's a movie worth watching and keeps you guessing. I watched it a second time two days later to catch parts I had missed. Again, a very good movie but not top shelf!

      Not at his best...

      I love Atom Egoyan's films. I have been a fan from the beginning. But his last few efforts seem to show a vastly creative man of the cinema running out of steam. The Captive has some great moments though... mainly from the outstanding cast in true stand out performances. Cheers to Ryan Reynolds in a dramatic turn as a father searching for his missing daughter.

      A Little Hard to Follow

      This movie was a bit hard to follow as it kept going back and forth, 8 years ago to the present. Once I finally understood what was happening with the time swapping, it was a pretty good movie.... a bit strange though. Not as good as I thought it would be. Now that I've bought it, don't know if it will ever be watched again.

      If you like extremely slow moving movies with unconvincing character acting, then this is the movie for you. Ryan Reynolds is fine as the caring father who never lost the hope that his daughter was alive. But everyone else was marginal at best. If you've got 2 hours to kill that you don't want back, watch this movie!

      Not even sure why I bother writing these reviews as they never seem to get posted without doing it more than once. This is a pretty good flick and I didn't think I'd like it that much with Ryan Reynolds in the lead, but he pulled it off. Overall a good flick.

      The movie all in all was good, it was very weird and uncomfortable at times but I think it was intended to make the audience feel that way. The plot was great and Ryan Reynolds was great in it! The cast, the plot, and the writing of this movie were really good.

      I've never been an Atom Egoyan fan, but I had some friends recommend it. Ryan Reynolds does a very good job with his role, but the story is difficult to watch, especially if you are a parent. I think "Prisoners" with Hugh Jackman was a much better film.

      There's a lot of sick "O's" in this world! This is a very suspenseful movie. It 's crazy what some sick freaks will do to snatch children from their love ones. This movie really exposes the lengths and things weird O's will do to kidnap children!
