What a chilling performance from Hubacher.

Though he belabors the obvious and sensationalizes the carnage and sadism, Schwentke is dealing with some relevant issues.

"The Captain" is full of suspense and interest throughout.

Atrocities and showmanship are queasy bedfellows when making movies of this ilk.

Many of the flourishes come off as callow, superficial. You watch "The Captain" with a sick feeling in your stomach, but probably not sick enough.

The movie seems at times a little too pleased with itself and its mordant observations on humanity.
