Proves compelling, thanks in part to subject matter that practically demands emotional investment from an audience: children in peril.

Cinema em Cena

Um drama tocante, um suspense sufocante e um filme de detetive magnífico. Um dos melhores longas do ano, sem dúvida alguma.

Denis Villeneuve's Prisoners is a nasty piece of work. Indeed, it is about as bleak and unforgiving as mainstream, studio moviemaking gets.

A gritty and intensely unsettling story of child abduction and obsession.

Not since Erskineville Kings, in 1999, has Hugh Jackman appeared so emotionally exposed on screen. It is an exceptional, Oscar-worthy performance.

Q Network Film Desk

a tense morality play wrapped in the bristling genre trappings of a police procedural, is exhausting in all the best ways-emotionally, intellectually, philosophically

The film's pace is an endurance test... (but) everyone gets to share in the dread of the final revelations. Does the end justify the means?

Jackman is still in his phase of high-masculine misery... The entire performance is an exclamation point, and he swings it like a baseball bat.

The brutality and torture displayed by the "hero" of this piece makes for several uncomfortable moments.

It's rare to find a film that really works on all levels, but that's exactly what Denis Villeneuve's has constructed with Prisoners.

Seven Days

Roger Deakins uses erratic flashes and glimmers of light to suggest that deliverance is always close at hand, but not close enough.

While all this industrial strength acting is going on, there's also a pretty engrossing mystery afoot that keeps your attention.

It remains gripping because of the realistic grounding of its characters and the raw vulnerability in the performances.

This is about as intense as movies can get. Superb performances and great direction will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Dark, sombre and deadly serious, Prisoners has more than fifty shades of grey in it, but Rogers Deakins ensures that each and every one is great to look at.

It's a tense and engaging thriller with some big ideas, only some of which it is able to carry.

Hollywood thrillers that feature vigilantes usually pander to our baser instincts. Prisoners doesn't let us off the hook so easily.

A story too densely plotted to feel real but too well built to fall over.

A good film with a shoddy ending that keeps it from being great.
