Movie Reviews

  • with its grisly realism, Prisoners is much more terrifying than any horror film, simultaneously grueling, spellbinding and contemplative
    3.5 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
  • when it comes to thrillers, this one is as good as it gets. Not for the squeamish, but for anyone who loves movies, it's too exhilarating to miss
    4 of 4 by Rex Reed [New York Observer ]
  • the film has several adeptly directed suspense scenes, such as a nighttime foot chase that makes you gasp at every motion-triggered backyard light
    3 of 5 by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York ]
  • Prisoners, by contrast, goes down more like a problem to be considered than an emotional experience to be savored
    Review rate : B by Chris Vognar [Dallas Morning News ]
  • Prisoners is a captive of its own ambitions
    Review rate : C by Amy Nicholson [L.A. Weekly ]
  • it absorbs and controls your attention with such assurance that you hold your breath for fear of distracting the people on screen
    4 of 5 by A.O. Scott [New York Times ]
  • i'm not sure I'd recommend it, though, for parents of young children or anyone squeamish about fairly explicit scenes approaching torture porn films like "Saw."
    3.5 of 5 by Lou Lumenick [New York Post ]
  • "Prisoners," like "Mystic River", takes us to some terribly dark places, and doesn't let us quickly return to the light
    3.5 of 4 by Moira MacDonald [Seattle Times ]
