Movie review: Prisoners

I went to see Prisoners with my girlfriend in theaters and it was the first movie we’ve seen together that we both felt satisfied with.  This is the story of a family finding two young girls who have gone missing.  One of these girls belongs to main character Keller Dover, played by Hugh Jackman.

Jackman’s performance alone makes this movie worth seeing.  You will really believe that you’re watching a man who cannot sleep because he is going out of his mind trying to find his daughter and is willing to go to no end to find her.  His character is a guy who cares a lot about keeping his family safe and when his youngest child goes missing it pushes him over the deep end.  He even goes to the point of torturing the man he believes took his daughter for days.

Jake Gyllenhaal  also delivers a good performance as Detective Loki, a twitchy, good guy cop, who puts his life into his job.

This is a great movie if you’re looking for a thrill.  Whether you want to watch with a significant other for a movie night, or enjoy with some friends, Prisoners will surely keep you gripping your seat.
