Captivity Reviews

  • May 05, 2019

    I was able to guess all the important facts of this movie. Some aspects were just gross and morbid. I usually check these numbers out more carefully. I use them as a guideline. Wasted 80 minutes I'll never get back. I wouldn't recommend.

    One of the worst films of all time. I cannot stand torture porn but given the subject and the way it is handled I can make exceptions. However this is just an excuse to gross out the audience. There are those who will call Captivity misogynist, and I can't argue with the label. However, I think it lets the film off too lightly - this movie is hateful to everything and everyone, not just women. It is contemptuous of its characters and its audience. If there is another challenger for worst entry of 2007, I don't want to see it. Captivity might be bearable if it was well acted and told an interesting story, but it's not either. The performances by Elisha Cuthbert and Daniel Gillies are so over-the-top that they would be at home in a straight porn movie. The screenplay has three levels: dumb, dumber, and dumbest. (Torture porn has never been so unappealing. Give this a miss).

    U wanna ripoff saw and hostel? Fine go ahead. Just don't expect anyone to care. If u wanna ripoff other horror films, can they at least be decent and not crap like the two mentioned. There are a few scenes where it genuinely feels like Cuthbert and Gillies are rehearsing their lines instead of reciting them. Complete lack of chemistry between the two and at least one gaping plot hole for good measure.

    Not bad, starts off with a little torture, a little plot twist, nothing too crazy. It kept my attention the whole time. Elisha Cuthbert is hotness.

    Bad movie. It's plot is a tired retread of constant other kidnapping torture porn films, some of its imagery is so brutal and and gruesome, it would make Jigsaw grimace, and the performances are pretty bland, especially Cuthbert's.

    Would a woman who is being held captive by a sadistic kidnapper have sex with a fellow captive when she knows she has been watched on camera every minute of her captivity? A certain logic that the plot misses. This is compensated by a decent, original twist in the plot involving her fellow captive and his brother. Other than that it is a very average horror flick in the style of the latter Saw movies, but not as prepostorous as those were. It lacks psychological intense. Towards the end the plot is bereft of any original ideas.

    It's not awesome, but it's better than the critics' reviews make it seem.

    Expected more. Very low budget even though it has Elisha Cuthbert.
