A haunting reminder of the dangers that lurk right outside our doorsteps, Prisoners, while slow paced, had a chilling intrigue that slowly pushed me to the edge of my seat. Hugh Jackman, in my opinion, deserved an Oscar for portraying a grieving father who would stop at nothing to find his daughter. There are many levels of humanity that are explored in the film that all fall under the darker aspects of the human persona: wrath, depression, cowardliness, suspicion, deceit, etc. which in turn creates a very dark and sometimes dreary tone that may not be for everybody. Just remember that this is a movie and if you have to react harshly to the evil that is portrayed in the film then treat it, once again, as a reminder to the evil that lurks out in the world.
