Default Prisoners (Movie)

Movie trailer

Anybody else interested in this movie? It opens on Sept. 20th.

I'm intrigued by it. The cast isn't necessarily superstar worthy, but I don't think who stars is as important as the actual story/acting. So what do you guys think? Looks good, right?

Hmm.. I thought more people would be interested in this movie. Maybe it's too early to make a thread about a movie that's coming out in less than 2 weeks..?

Just came home from watching this movie. It's an A+, 5/5, 10/10, 100/100; whatever your rating system is, it's the highest on that list. If anybody else watches it, don't be surprised to have your mind blown.

Is that the one with Hugh Jackman and Jake Gylenhaal? If so it looked really dope in the trailers. Also, this probably is as good a cast you will get, male acting wise, nowadays.

Only watched the trailer, but i think i can guess the plot.

Hugh Jackman and Howard are life long frds
there family are frds too
on thanksgiving their daughters get kidnapped
everyone suspects the weird dude caught by the trailer
not enough evidence to hold the weird dude
jackman is convinced he has or killed their daughters
jackman kidnaps weird dude and tortures weird dude
at first howard is against this but later joins in
turns out weird dude was innocent
they tortured an innocent man, and their daughters were killed by someone they trusted

am i close?

I decided to stop the trailer halfway. Not because the movie didn't seem interesting, but because it felt like I was watching half of the movie already..

I might go see this though, I like the cast.

Close but no, you have to watch it to understand it.

I thought they ended the movie really well. It was as big of a twist as they could've made it.

I saw it, I definitely enjoyed it. Super suspenseful and a little creepy, but it does get a little slow at times. Jackman is fantastic as usual and Gyllenhaal plays a great role too.

Saw it a bit ago. Overall I'd give it a 7.8/10

It was a tight script overall without too many plot holes or logical inconsistencies. Jackman was solid, did a little too much yelling and indicating for my liking (the constant hand shaking and banging inanimate objects in particular ), Gylenhaal was alright, the supporting cast was great overall with Viola Davis and Paul Dano as the standouts.

The cinematography was on point and helped to maintain that dreary, dark mood. There was a constant overcast sky, rain, etc. And certain shots that experimented with light and shadows definitely added to the atmosphere.

I figured out the major twist relatively early in the story, but it didn't really take away from my enjoyment of everything on screen.

The only issues I had were (SPOILERS AHEAD) 1) I thought it fell flat with their attempt to bring religion into the story. They had a lame 'war against God' angle to try to explain the kidnappings and have that be the motive. They had the priest kill Adam's 'uncle' and keep him in his crawl space when logically, he would've just gone to the police with that info. I know they were pushing the whole everyone turns into a monster when faced with the 'war against God' thing, but I just thought it was stupid. But I guess the plot needed that little contrivance and it wasn't too far-fetched so I guess the writers get a pass.

2) I wish they had expanded Loki's story more. He seemed to have an interesting backstory (the tattoos, eye twitch, etc) but they never really got into it.

Definitely would recommend it.
