Perturbadoramente brutal. Prisoners começa como uma história plausível realista, com um tempo de execução longo demais, ele começa a ficar complicado, e o publico começa e se remexer na poltrona, a paciência diminui e a responsabilidade de compensar toda essa enrolação começa a ficar grande. Algumas ambivalências baratas são colocados como entrada antes do prato principal, e essas de novo demoram a ser transmitidas, e você simplesmente se sente abusado. O final se aproxima vagarosamente e então boom, ele explode na sua cara sem trazer junto qualquer satisfação que compense o tempo perdido, e pior termina sem acabar.

This film was very well done. It was magnificent. Prisoners is a child abduction thriller about two girls who are abducted in broad daylight. The father of one of the girls won't stop at nothing to figure out what happened to his daughter. Hugh Jackman was excellent as the father trying to figure out where his daughter and her friend are. His performance was so believable. Jake Gyllenhaal did excellent as a detective trying to help the family and figure out the mystery. The rest of the cast were believable, including Viola Davis, Paul Dano, Dylan Minnette, and Terrence Howard. The cinematography was great. Denis Villeneuve is a visionary director who knows how to tell a story. The film was very emotionally tense. It's an Emotional Roller Coaster of a film. This is one of those films that makes you imagine what you would do in the situation, how far you would go to find your child. This film is a spectacular masterpiece. I would super recommend this film to everyone.


Rating: 9.9/10

It is generally an excellent movie but here and there pops these baffling mistakes, generally in characters behaviors or procedural doings that are baffling. You wonder how this detective managed to solve all his cases really. Apart from this its a 150 minutes that doesnt feel a minute too long as it drags you in and holds you in a vicegrip.

Extremely intense! The movie deals with some moral issues and engages the viewer, but it is very predictable and some of the characters are irritating. (First and only viewing -3/18/2014)

A brilliant story of loss and tragedy. With its amazing actors, plot, and mystery, it is truly a film that will live on as a great mystery story for all who experience it.

9.8/10
A thrilling ride from start to finish, Prisoners is a film that will have you on the edge of your seat the entire time. The film is extremely emotionally draining and dares to show the violence you don't want to see. Prisoners is one of the best movies of the year and has Oscar worthy performances by both Gyllenhaal and Jackman.

WHAT I LIKED: In some moments, 'Prisoners' is one of the grittiest, most frightening psychological thrillers I've ever seen, as it hooks you and places you in one of the most desperate and difficult scenarios imaginable. What hooks you though is a whole combination of incredible performances (particularly from Hugh Jackman), great character-building and typically cold, sparse and nail-biting direction from Denis Villenueve, and amazingly moody cinematography from Roger Deakins.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: As it unravels, you realise the plot and themes are actually rather convoluted and silly, and the fact you get so much breathing room to think about all that makes it quite a big problem.
VERDICT: A dark, scary thriller where the brilliant cast and direction can't quite overcome the weaker foundations.

I did not get bored at any point during this film. And that is an amazing feat considering it was way past bedtime when I popped it into the DVD player. I was engaged the entire length.

Outstanding. Outstanding.

a totally piece of jewerly, this is the best result that an police thriller could have, amazing story, beautiful scenes, breathtaking situations and the best cast that could have been founded. Strong performance from jake gyllenhaal and good management of script, with a lot of interrogants, prioners complies with everything we expected.

Fantastic, tense & brilliantly acted thriller.
March 17, 2017
Denis Villeneuve twists and turns you with this disturbing masterpiece centered on a complex plot line, blurry characters (whether or not who is good or bad with either positive or negative intentions), and a gloomy atmosphere all packed into a suspense-filled thriller similar to David Fincher's Se7en (1995) or Zodiac (2007). But Villeneuve's depressing mosaic is one hell of an emotional ride.
