Prisoners takes its time
5 second plot: Two little girls disappear all of a sudden. The parents think they were abducted. The prime suspect is released quickly because there is too little evidence. The father of one of the girls takes matters in his own hands and locks him up. He tortures him to get answers. But is he asking the right guy?
5 second review: Extremely fine acting, there's no doubt about that. The movie takes a whole lot of time to get somewhere. It's all part of the deal, I know, but they could have speeded up things just a bit. Because now it takes forever. That adds to the tension, but also adds to the drag.
IMDb score: 8,1/10
