'Prisoners'­ @ Komedia

Prisoners [15]
Duration:153 mins
Director: Denis Villeneuve
Starring: Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Maria Bello

Synopsis
It’s every father’s worst nightmare: hardworking carpenter Keller Dover’s six-year-old daughter and her best friend are kidnapped during Thanksgiving celebrations.
Keller, played by Hugh Jackman (THE WOLVERINE), finds himself head to head with the brashly confident detective Loki (Gyllenhaal, END OF WATCH), who nevertheless fails to find the missing girls. But after young Ralph Dover recalls seeing them playing around a beat-up motorhome, Keller takes the investigation into his own hands, triggering explosive results – and inevitable questions about vigilantism masquerading as justice.
Paul Dano (LOOPER) plays the listless chief suspect, and Maria Bello, Terrence Howard and Viola Davis provide terrific support as the other desperate parents, while director Villeneuve again demonstrates the talent for multilateral suspense that won him his INCENDIES Oscar nomination.

    Agree, thanks for organising Stella. I enjoyed this more than I thought I would as it didn't follow all the usual Hollywood patterns. Unpredictable, well-written script. Hugh Jackman playing against type and excellent as was Jake Gyllenhall who seems to be playing a lot of dark and tortured cops these days... I didn't mind the length as found the story quite engrossing. Guess my only minus is that I wasn't entirely convinced by the final revelation of the motivation that led to the action (trying not to give anything away!) but otherwise, a compelling thriller that I'd recommend...

    Clever, dark and scary thriller, good performances but my usual razor sharp brain can't have been in gear as Stella had to explain half of the 'clues' in the plot to me. Minuses quite a few plot holes and overlong

    I'm going to try and come along. It looks horrendously long and scary but a good cast.
