Top Billing: Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Viola Davies
When Keller Dover’s daughter and her friend go missing, he takes matters into his own hands as the police pursue multiple leads and the pressure mounts. But just how far will this desperate father go to protect his family?
What a scary film to watch as a mother, it comes across as very realistic when the two girls are taken and so easily done. There is a terrifying wait as they track down the initial suspect and then when nothing comes of it and the father takes matters into his own hands, things really hot up. As expected, the feelings are running high and both Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal are excellent in this, but it is a long film and not necessary in my opinion. As in other films I have to wonder about the decisions the main characters made. I know parents would do almost anything to save their children and I know it wouldn’t make a good story if they made all the right choices, as parents that is just not the case. It lost all realism at one point and all I could do is wish for it to end, regardless of the great two lead characters.
