This review is from: Prisoners [DVD] (DVD)
A movie which could have done with some editing down. It succeeds in holding ones attention but could hardly call it compulsive viewing!
I have to say that I failed to follow a few threads of the plot with at least one character being simply bizarre.
The first suspect is a young man with the mental age of ten, who is supposed to have been driving around in a fairly large camper van. He is then abducted off the street by Hugh Jackman's character. No one seems remotely bothered that he has apparently 'run away'.
As the credits rolled I was left wondering about a few other aspects of the plot had me puzzled. The movie is 'ok' but certainly not 'The thriller of the year' as the hype indicates. Oh, and watch out for the instant change of seasons! In one scene it is green and pleasant, and two minutes later it's snowbound and icy!!! Then back to dry and clear...
