Routine and unimaginative. [Full review in Spanish]
January 5, 2020
...a good-enough look into the origins of a real-life psychological phenomenon...
July 28, 2019
The talent involved means The Captor is always watchable, but it's never anything more than that.
July 11, 2019
Hawke and Rapace (the original Lisbeth Salander) manage some chemistry in their scenes together, when not being held hostage to the creaky plot mechanics.
June 26, 2019
It's fun watching Ethan Hawke's oddball robber socking it to The Man in a wig and stick-on handlebars.
June 26, 2019
The ever watchable Ethan Hawke is the best thing in this crime caper. It's uneven and lacks the power of its premise but always manages to keep your attention hostage.
June 24, 2019
Budreau's film is fitfully entertaining, at its strongest on the similarity between Stockholm syndrome... and what most of us would simply call "a movie romance."
June 24, 2019
Director Robert Budreau doesn't take it entirely seriously, leaving us with something that is always interesting but lacks jeopardy.
June 23, 2019
From its gaudy 70s costuming to its goofy, wobbling tone, everything about this film feels uncomfortably broad.
June 22, 2019
Robert Budreau's reimagining of the heist that gave us the term Stockholm syndrome is a strange, funny masquerade.
June 21, 2019
It may not all be true or indeed the complete story, with little of the aftermath re-enacted, but Hawke makes you wish it was.

Age becomes Ethan Hawke. The more raspy and wrinkled he gets, the better he is on screen... And here he holds together a film that is shaky in many respects and shouldn't work.
June 21, 2019
Budreau finds more than a little comedy in all of this. Indeed, he introduces his film with the caption 'Based on an absurd but true story'. That's spot on.
June 20, 2019
Falling prey to his own Stockholm syndrome, Budreau lets his crooks off their dangerous foolishness.
June 20, 2019
[Ethan] Hawke and his Easy Rider moustache are clearly having a wild old time and their gonzo enthusiasm just about powers this otherwise inert drama over the county line.
June 19, 2019
The one-note wackiness of tone wars against the witty potshots, presumably intended, at incompetence on both sides of the law.
June 19, 2019
An absurd or rather absurdist true-crime melodrama.
June 19, 2019
The film unfolds as a baffling screwball comedy, and recalls classic heist films such as Dog Day Afternoon, even as it persistently subverts our expectations.
June 18, 2019
An interesting period piece which takes a lot of risks and mostly succeeds.
June 18, 2019
More like Dog's Dinner Afternoon.
