Se você gosta de um bom suspense, um filme mais cabeça como um labirinto sem sentido e que no final tudo começa a se esclarecer, não tem outro filme melhor que Os Suspeitos.
The story is slowly paced, and has many twists along side it, some working better than others, but what really prevents the running time from being a bothering aspect, is the greatly constructed characters and the respecting solid acting's from the cast. Jackman's troubled and agressive father demands your attention, but it's Gyllenhaal's meditative cop who really stands out for me.
The grimy and bleak tone of the story is portrayed with expertise by the masterful hand of cinematographer Roger Deakins, and this really adds to the constant atmosphere of suspense. For this reason, and Villeneuve's style of direction, one might draw comparations with David Fincher's style, something that isn't actually bad per se.
The main problem with the film is its heavy-handed religious symbolism, which never really adds anything to the actual story line, and is deeply under-used. Aside from that, there are some points in the story that seem somewhat out of place, but still, these don't really ruin the viewing experience.
Overall, Prisoners is a greatly crafted Thriller, with outstanding acting's, award-worthy photography and an interesting story that keeps you hooked for its somewhat overlong running time.
When a child goes missing, Detective Loki takes on the case for this respective family. In a grueling and long, seemingly endless mystery, we'll experience the pain of losing a child and just how far one will go to put things back to normal.
"Prisoners" is an emotional and tragic story about a pair of families who lose their young daughters. Not only is this just hard to watch at times, but it's also really painful. This film is emotional and it just drains you. You're watching this family experience this loss and there's really no words to describe it. I don't think anyone would know what to do when it comes to losing their child and I can't imagine experiencing that. Seeing it play out is enough for me.
This film is a really good, intriguing mystery film. It's a mix between like a crime and a drama film because you're going along this journey with the detective to figure out who committed the crime, but you're also following the family's story. This movie keeps you guessing and wondering and it never really has a clear cut answer. It's very dark and the entire mystery somehow constantly added more and more layers to the story. It was a very fun (I use that term loosely) story to try and analyze and solve.
Hugh Jackman has an amazing and gut wrenching performance here. You see just how far a Father will go to find his daughter and the surplus amount of pain that comes with that. He does things and experiences things that most other men won't, all because this is such a painful tragedy. Jake Gyllenhaal, who's still my favorite actor today, also gives a great performance. He plays the serious and firm detective with a twitch, and he also does a great job as one of the primary leads. Paul Dano also gives one of his eeriest performances to date, playing a low IQ, potential suspect boy. All the performances were fantastic in this film and they really brought out that emotional gravity of the situation.
The screenplay overall was amazing. I loved the dialogue and the chain of events. This is a long, drawn out film that might not necessarily be for everyone, but it's still a fantastically structured script.
In the end, "Prisoners" is one of the best films of 2013, being one of the darkest and most real dramas out there.
