Prisoners
2013
When his 6-year-old daughter is abducted and the investigation stalls, carpenter Keller Dover tracks down the culprit himself. But his vigilante action pits him against the case's lead detective and puts his own sanity at risk.

Erik Bates: “It ruled.”

A sufficiently suspenseful, disturbing thriller with a superb cast, the least of which is Hugh Jackman. I thought I had all the twists figured out early on, but they kept throwing convincing red herrings over my path to make me second-guess myself.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

Great creepy movie. Over two hours of sustained tension, from the very first shot to the last. Strongly acted, even in small roles like Maria Bello's. Twists that keep you guessing. Subtextual themes that may or may not give you more to think about. Great (Oscar-nominated) photography of snowy suburbs and rotted interiors. Superb thriller.
