Movie of the cliche script variety
Verified purchase
Hugh Jackman plays Hugh Jackass in this stilted awkward movie. I won't say anything about the plot in case you are an alien who has never seen in a movie in your alien life and this clunker might come as a surprise. The actors with the exception of Jake Gyllenhaal all giving the acting caliber of limited drama students who think they're rather good at improv but in fact, are as wooden as a forest. of trees. And to try and generate some vague pulse there is a dropped ending. Go and do something with your life I wasted mine watching this don't do the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars
Hard subject, strong movie telling.
Verified purchase
Two young girls go missing & we become witness of a fascinating mixture where Police tries to use the tools and (little) budget they have, while one of the fathers starts his own search anxious to do whatever to find the girls.
The usual dilemma of doing things legally or breaking the law because the goal – finding the young girls alive - is so far more important.
Brilliant Actors (don’t forget the bad guys who performed their role creepy well).
One of these movies that haunts your “thinking over again” for the next few weeks.

The E One Blu Ray disc Has Subtitles in English -
Blu Ray quality is standard good / very good.
[!] Please Ignore the Terrible Extra's - Except when you like to watch the movie again in fragments and see some seconds, actors telling what the film is about. (In case you did not get the story? I just wonder why they make extras like this these days.)

On the surface may seem like an average run-of-the-mill thriller
Verified purchase
The film that first made me stand up and take notice of Denis Villeneuve (before Arrival, Blade Runner, Sicario etc.). On the surface may seem like an average run-of-the-mill thriller, but DV really elevates this to the level of macabre master-work. I began watching it expecting very little and was utterly absorbed within 10 minutes, and spellbound to the end. Jake G's performance is magnificent. I think a lot of people either ignored or under-rated this. Possibly too subtle for some...yet it really stands miles above most of the other schlock that pass for thrillers these days. Do not miss.

Just one thing made it incomplete
Verified purchase
I am not able to completely compliment this movie , because just one thing left a loose end for me . The young girl who ran away and was recovered first , looked at Hugh Jackman and said "You put tape over our mouths!" ???? That was never explained . Am I really dim ? Did I miss something ? That just takes the edge off an otherwise well made movie experience.

Who is living in your neighbourhood?

The nature of this film is something to make us all cringe. This would be every parents worst nightmare, yet it does happen...it is sickening when it happens...yet...we at the same time would be relieved in knowing it has not happened to our own children. A stellar cast, a certain Mr. Mark Wahlberg working behind the camera ensures this film was going to be off the highest standard possible. It will be hard viewing understandably for some, but on reflection this could be a story on that could be front page news in the times we live in today. How far would you go to find your missing child or to protect them in today’s society???...for most...no action would be considered as being taken to far!

LadBible brought me here :)

So, after seeing a post about this movie on LadBible recently, I just had to watch it! It's a very gripping & interesting story and the movie is told & shot in an exceptional way. The acting was great and it kept on having me guessing!

The reasons that I didn't give this movie 5 stars is because they left it too open to interpretation for the ending. I would've liked to have seen what happened next to finish the story as closure. Also, there were a couple of parts in the movie that they didn't quite explain.

Although I would re-watch this movie, it definitely could've been elevated & completed for me to consider this as an outstanding film.

'A TENSE AND OFTEN BRUTAL TALE'
Verified purchase
I believe this to be a film worthy of it's acclaim.
Almost from the outset of the film 'Keller Dover's'(Hugh Jackman) six year old
daughter 'Anna' and her friend 'Joy' go missing.
The police have an early suspect 'Alex Jones' however because lack of evidence,
and despite 'Keller's' plea to hold the suspect, the arresting officer 'Detective Loki'
(Jake Gyllenhaal) will have to release the suspect after 48 hours have past.
The investigation and search becomes intense, however the girls are not found.
'Detective Loki' leaves no stone unturned in an effort to find the young friends.
Hours turn into days, 'Keller' becomes desperate believing he can find the answers
the police have failed to do, he takes matters into his own hands.
'Keller' has involved 'Franklin' 'Joy's' father in pursuit of the truth, the thing being is
the focus of their attention right or wrong.
An intense and gripping drama indeed, there are scenes of torture and violence along
the way.
The film will hold your attention throughout, the plot will almost certainly tie you up in
knots ( so to speak) as the suspense intensifies.
Some great performances on board, especially that of 'Hugh Jackman'
Good picture and Sound Quality.
Extras - Powerful Performances.
- Every moment Matters.

Tense stuff
Verified purchase
A typically bleak and harrowing drama from Denis Villeneuve with a top performance from Hugh Jackman, who plays the father of one of two girls abducted who goes to gruesome lengths to get to the bottom of things. Gyllenhall is the methodical and rather plodding investigative detective. Excellent support from the rest of the cast, an an unseen twist in the tail.
