Prisoners: Will Capture You

"Oh My Gosh," a woman pants as she leaves the movie theater. (Yes, she did say "gosh.")
"I've got such a headache," another woman moans.

They've just seen Prisoners and don't be surprised if this flick has the same effect on you.

It's edgy in every way. The actions on the screen is out there. And you'll be sitting at the edge of your seat for most of the 2-hour-and-26-minute movie. You won't be bored for even a split second.

Hugh Jackman, as a father whose young daughter goes missing, and Jake Gyllenhaal as the detective on the case, are riveting. But it's the story and psychology of the characters that will catch you up, take hold of you and not let go for at least 30 minutes after the closing credits.

The movie makes you question how you'd react in a similar circumstance. How far would you go to get your child back? Dead or alive.
