How far would you go to protect your family? Oscar® nominee Hugh Jackman stars as a man facing every parent's worst nightmare. His six-year-old daughter is missing, together with her young friend -- and as minutes turn to hours, panic sets in. The only lead is a dilapidated RV that had earlier been parked on their street. Heading the investigation, the detective in charge arrests its driver , but a lack of evidence forces his release. As the police pursue multiple leads and pressure mounts, knowing his child's life is at stake, the frantic father decides he has no choice but to take matters into his own hands. But just how far will he go to protect his family? Led by Jackman and Gyllenhaal, this dramatic thriller features an all-star cast, including Maria Bello as Keller's distraught wife; Oscar® nominees Terrence Howard and Viola Davis as the other parents, whose daughter also went missing; in addition to Academy Award® winner Melissa Leo.

    Great movie from start to finish. Absolutely thrilling. Ive seen this movie about 2-3 times and its still good.
  • Pretty Darn Good

    I'm usually an action movie guy but this is a tight, well-done whodunnit with plenty of creepiness and suspense. Hugh Jackman, Terrence Howard, Jake Gyllenhaal and Viola Davis do excellent work. Maria Bello is perhaps a little bit out of her league here (as Jackman's wife) but she did well enough. My only complaint is that it's a tad long, but that might be because I usually require a good dose of action to keep me interested. If you enjoy a good creepy murder mystery then you'll enjoy this one. 3.75 out of 5.
  • i'm not good with titles but

    prisoners is a pretty good movie. i'm hooked. it's suspenseful, then one minute you think it's going left, it goes up. but i like what one review had said, about the editing, could've been a whole lot better but still a great film.

    throughout this fantastic movie, all i could think about was how my 13 year old little brother could be a better investigator than this detective.

    Easily moved to one of my favorite movies. Great acting, regardless of what some say, and a story that keeps your heart in knots. If you are into thrillers this is one to see.

    I guess I was unsure what to expect from this movie. I was blown away by the twists in the plot. It kept me in suspense till the end.
