The snow and frigid temps kept us in the first weekend back from Christmas vacation. Well also the exhaustion from the holidays and travel and cold bug we'd all been fighting. After putting away the last of the Christmas decorations and tucking Adelaide in bed, Ryan & I rented Prisoners.
I love thrillers and anything suspenseful making Prisoners no exception. We were both on the seat of our pants the entire movie. Father Keller (Hugh Jackman) is on a mission to find his daughter who has vanished along side her friend. After Detective Loki (Jake Gyllenhaal) releases the main suspect, Keller takes things into his own hands. Torturing the teenaged Alex (Paul Dano) and involving the other missing girls parents Nancy & Franklin (Viola Davis/Terrance Howard). His wife turns to medication to sleep while his teenage son realizes that Keller is losing control. All the while Detective Loki is working tirelessly to capture the bad guy and keep Keller from doing anything stupid.
If you love thrillers, mysteries, and keep-you-on-your-toes, then Prisoners is for you!
