Mini Review - Prisoners

Prisoners (out Oct 17) is a long thriller (2.5 hours) that revolves around two girls who go missing in a quiet American suburb. Jake Gyllenhaal gives a great performance as a tired detective trying to solve the case... but the story goes down some strange, not-so-credible paths in its second half. A shame since so much intrigue is build up in the early stages. Grade: B.
