Movie Review: Prisoners

One of the better movies I have seen this year. A movie about the dilemma of choice. About how far would you go, About what an individual is capable of doing for love and family.

Hugh Jackman gives a very stirring performance as a parent who would do anything to find his missing child. When law enforcement runs into a brick wall Hugh takes the law in his hands. The choices he makes are disturbing but understandable. Every parents nightmare. How far would you go to find your missing child.

I thought the movie was a little to transparent in the “movie clues” that were planted. And it took a little too long for them to be figured out.

Movie ends with a very open ended scene. Not good for the general movie going public. A lot of pissed of people walked out of this movie. I thought it was a nice touch for the movie. Begins with the dilemma of choice and ends the same way. From a different point of view.

3 1/4 stars out of 4.

Welcome to my Blog!

Greetings. I’m Doug Adams. I’m an avid moviegoer who usually sees two or three movies a week, averaging more than 100 movies every year.

Friends nicknamed me the “movie mooch” because they give me movie passes for gifts or friends at theaters comp me in, so I rarely pay for a movie…but I do spend a fortune on concessions!

I’ll try to post reviews regularly. I review movies on a 4-star system. I try to see a little bit of everything.

I hope you’ll enjoy my point of view.

Doug
