Had major potential, then fell short. Fast.

Naturally, I was intrigued by "The Captive", great plot and amazing actors, what could possibly go wrong? From the start, I could tell this movie was going to have a ton of flashbacks, which is fine, until those flashbacks kinda become irrelevant because the viewer has no idea which flashback comes first. Strike 1. The introduction of Scott Speedman was a treat, until he was a bit weird acting and since that was never explained, I guess that was just his character?.. Then the part where Ryan Reynolds character has an abusive past was brought up (in reference to plot), then was never to be heard of again. Strike 2. Still don't know much about the wife's character. Strike 3. No explanation about the relationship of the two detectives (Dawson & Speedman) but since Dawson seemed to have a picture of Speedman's niece in her office, it's to be assumed they're in a relationship. OK. And for the focus to be the family of the missing girl, I feel it rarely focused on them. Strike 4.

This movie just needed a lot of tweaking. Starting with some back story of the characters at the beginning. And less flashbacks. More explanations. And more focus on how the unit was actually working towards finding the missing child.

A very good movie

I don't undertand the bad ranting, the movie is well made, good actors and good story. I really got into the characters, even the pedos xD I liked it a lot, i'm guessing why people didn't like it is because of the scene changes, has past and present scenes mixed so SLOW people gets lost, i didn't and i loved that touch, gets the movie more intriguing.

Much better than the rated score

I'm going defend this film, I've probably watched 4 films a week for the last 10 years so we get through a lot of dross and have gotten to know what movies are like that are rated below 6, this isn't one. OK, so the ending could have been better but it's not a complete let down and the rest of the movie is well acted. I think the key to it being poorly rated is because it's eerily frustrating to watch which is definitely the intention here, if you can appreciate that then you'll like it as we did. There are some creepy performances and it's a bit twisted in a way. All in all it should be rated somewhere between 7 and 7.5, solid but not amazing, worth a watch.
