The Captive - 2.5 Stars
This intense thriller has a strong cast, but overall weak motives. The cinematography is clever and creative, but this can’t save the flawed story. The villain is very stereotypical and the film heavily borrows of stories like Taken.
Overall a waste of strong talent in an average kidnap film!
