  • Some will write off Prisoners as shameless exploitation. But like Clint Eastwood's "Mystic River," to which it's been compared, Prisoners is so artfully shaped and forcefully developed that objections fade. show more

  • It's difficult to remember a recent movie that soared so high, before plummeting with a series of bad story choices. But the end result is still a strong piece of cinema, a failure only if you dwell on what might have been. show more

  • Prisoners is infused with a poetic intensity that's rare in American thrillers. The closest cinematic comparisons would be "Zodiac," "In the Bedroom" and "Mystic River." show more

    The movie was REMARKABLE! I haven't seen something so emotionally gripping for a long time. This was surely an amazing ride. I would recommend it to anyone! Acting was phenomenal!!
