Prisoners (2013 Movie)

It’s hard to understand how to take Prisoners, or whom to identify with. This crime thriller follow the disappearance of two girls, and the efforts of one of their fathers and a detective to get them back. The father starts going too far, and soon pops up on the detective’s radar.

The characters are well-drawn and the developments in the case and the opposition between Jackman’s and Gyllenhaal’s characters kept me engaged. The ending seemed a bit too much luck-based though, and I wished the villain got more of a comeuppance.
