Prisoners Review: Prisoners is a gritty, incredibly well-acted, suspenseful, thought-provoking crime drama thriller. The film mainly focus on the choices taken and the consequences faced by the characters when worst things happen to them. It simply raises the question: When your kid’s life is at stake, how far are you willing to do to protect your family? Prisoners explores the likelihood of human behaviour when such crime is happening to us, blurring the lines between good and bad people.
The story does unfolds at a slow and solemn pace but the dramatic scenes performed by the main cast members in the film will keep you engaged. Hugh Jackman and Jack Gyllenhaal both giving intense, Oscar-worthy performances here, defining and developing their characters with various layers of emotions: affection, anger, grief, empathy, guilt…throughout the film.
Prisoners’s atmosphere, heavy rains, stormy days and icy cold winter managed to create a dark, dreadful environment to make up the dreary and haunting mood in the film. Every violent action taken by the characters are acts of desperation given that they are running out of time. Prisoners is highly recommended for those who wanted to watch a serious drama thriller with powerful, engaging acting performances from its talented casts.
