    Frank Scheck The Hollywood Reporter

    The end result doesn't even satisfy on its own sleazy terms. Not only does it lack the satirical nihilism of the "Hostel" films or the admittedly clever torture machinations of the "Saw" series, it doesn't even provide its target young male audience with the requisite nudity. show more

    Quite possibly the final word on a much-maligned genre. show more

    Captivity is torture porn without the sex. Cuthbert squirms, screams, weeps and pleads for her life with great conviction. Slick, sick sleaze. show more

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    A lurid thriller that marks a new career low for both director Roland Joffé (The Killing Fields, The Mission) and co-screenwriter Larry Cohen (Phone Booth, It's Alive). show more

    If there is another challenger for worst entry of 2007, I don't want to see it. show more

    Torture junkies should remember it’s only four months to Saw IV -- so you can afford to avoid Captivity. show more

    A terrible rehash of better torture genre exploitation, with none of the charm. show more

    While this type of movie has been done to death (like most movies today) was a solid watch. It picks up after about 20 minutes. I did not regret spending 9 dollars on it.

    My children have been attending Sunshine for sometime and have enjoyed their days. This facility has an excellent preschool program at reasonable rates. The staff is friendly and always greets my children with a smile.

    when you get to listen to one of the goverment black ops who worked in south america they will tell you that many of our missing girls end up there as trade for drugs and truned into permanent prostitutes. all they say is that they sign a paper that says they can never reveal to the public what they have seen time and time again. viva america
