It is very bad, as it seems to think it is a lot more serious than it actually is. The dialogue and story are very weak, and they lack depth and real meaning. It just seems to be a straight forward story with attempts at twists that you can see coming. The acting is actually very bad, and the only star comes from Mr. Affleck who is the only good thing about this movie.
Very strong film. It carries a little long, but it has very dark matter to it and puts you right in the shoes of the parents looking for the children. The dialogue and story are very strong with lots of twists and turns to keep you on your toes. Jackman and Gyllenhaal give great performances in the lead roles, but Dano really does a good job as well and deserves a lot of credit.
It is a good watch. From time to time it gets to be a little bit too unbelievable as the story flows together and every thing happens to work out. It does have nice progression and dialogue. If it were cut down a little as it seems there are a few pointless scenes, it could have been a more enjoyable watch.
