Director Denis Villeneuve has given us one hell of a terrifying and highly suspenseful ride with his first major Hollywood film, ‘Prisoners‘. With one amazing cast, excellent script, and terrifying story, I expect Warner Bros. to make a decent buck off this flick. This is a story that is all too familiar in our lives, where it seems like almost every week, we hear a news story of a child in our neighborhood, town, or city that has gone missing. The reactions and damage this causes their families seems all to real and scary. And with ‘Prisoners‘, the violence and suspense never lets up.

And Villeneuve’s camera work is beautiful and haunting, as he takes us through the gritty and grimy underbelly of two seemingly normal families during the worst part of their lives. I have no doubt that you will leave this film shaken and looking over your shoulder for at least a couple of days, and won’t be surprised if ‘Prisoners’ were to show up come Oscar season. Excellent film.

Movie Quotes

[in an interview about a possible title fight with Joe Frazier]
Muhammad Ali:
But if I ever was to get in the ring with Joe, here's what you might see. Ali comes out to meet Frazier, but Frazier starts to retreat. If Joe back up an inch farther, he'll wind up in a ringside seat. Ali swings with his left. Ali swings with his right. Just look at the kid carry the fight. Frazier keeps backin', but there's not enough room. It's only a matter of time before Ali lowers the boom. Ali swings with his right. What a beautiful swing. But the punch lifts Frazier clean out of the ring. Frazier still rising, and the referee wears a frown 'cause he can't start countin' till Frazier comes down. Frazier's disappeared from view. The crowd is getting frantic. But our radar stations done picked him up. He's somewheres over the Atlantic. Now, who would've thought, when they came to the fight, they was gonna witness the launching of a black satellite? But don't wait for that fight. It ain't never gonna happen. The onliest thing you can do is wonder and imagine.
