I saw that movie recently and I found it interesting and worth knowing. I know that there are many other better movies, but it's not the worst one, you have to allow for that this movie is one of the fewest Russian/American Production. And the actors play well so that make it much more realistic. As the movie had troubles earlier with his posters in Los Angeles and New York from the MPPA, thats why the movie will be shown a month later in the US. In despite of the worse criticism we should take it serious. I saw that movie recently and I found it interesting and worth knowing. I know that <more>

"Captivity" was not quite what I expected. After the schlock fest as of late, I was expecting the standard fare that has swept the heartland and tried swimming to the shores here. Elisha Cuthbert turns in a superb performance that was a throwback to classic horror films. It was good to see a female with a plum role like Jamie Lee Curtis had in Halloween and Sigourney Weaver in Alien/Aliens. She's terrific in a role that allows a great presence like Danielle Gilles to shine as the film's bright spots. The suspense impressive for a lower-budget film as the story lends itself <more>
from classic Hitchcock and is a straight laced story where the house itself becomes the horrifying antagonist. All in all, this is above average fare that should have some legs between upcoming releases. I applaud the endeavor that Lionsgate and After Dark films for pushing these obscure horror films that may or may not have ever seen the light of day. Kudos to Roland Joffe and Larry Cohen for crafting a well thought out thriller.
Wondering what Captivity would look like with more gore? Apparently, the US version will have quite a bit of added nastiness But last night after wandering passed the pub, I decided on this film. No, this film is not an all out hack 'em up fest one might expect from the trailers about a deranged madman hell bent on wreaking havoc upon a young woman as she takes a personal journey of self discovery after being kidnapped. The film's twist is that it transcends the cliché gorefest i.e. Hostel/Saws and back again -- I must admit that I truly liked the director's intent with this <more>
film. He seemed to take the film out to an uncomfortable ledge and drop it with optimism of being different and unique. Let me tell you that this worked EXTREMELY well. This film doesn't have the standards of a cheesy horror thriller but has some viscerally entertaining sequences. The ever sexy Elisha Cuthbert did an astounding job in a difficult role of being stronger than the man played by the forgettable dude from the Spider Man franchise. And major kudos to the director for giving us one hell of a cerebral jolt to the concept of appreciating life for this film should haunt viewers well after bedtime for its explicit and reality laced carnage.
I went to go see this film today and I saw the trailers before I went to see them and they make the film seem really rubbish. The film didn't seem that good with the trailers and I couldn't understand but the trailers look rubbish because most nearly all the film is gore! Now this film really appealed to me because I loved the Saw films and the end part of Hostel so when it started the first couple of mins I thought great!! good start think I am going to like this. I just hoped that the rest of the film lived up to the first few minutes and I can tell you it did!! I warn you now if <more>
you didn't like the Saw sequels or Hostel you will NOT like this film. This is not for the fate hearted! The way they created suspense and gore throughout was amazing I was one minute hiding under my coat and the next nearly being sick! It's great how this film can make you feel. The storyline follows more the Saw films than Hostel with the twist somewhat to near the end. If you like films where you can't predict what is going to happen next then this is a film for you. The fact that they weren't that famous actors/actresses in was good because makes you get into the film more. Well I feel it does.Well that's all really have to say could say more but would spoil it for those who want and are going to see it!! GOOD FILM THO!
Captivity was grand. The shocks were quite pleasant and the acting was brilliant. Seeing this film during a matinée showing proved to be a choice of the wiser. No little rascals running around impeding on my enjoyment of seeing great actors collide with a demoniacal captors holding Ms. Cuthbert hostage for their own guilty pleasure. The moody scope of the film and terrific cinematography was beyond excellent. The atmosphere and isolation of the house provided a spooky concept for some set pieces. Aside from the so-so special effects, the performances really held this film together. Seeing <more>
the ever beautiful Elisha in a juicy piece of pulp lore like this was worth the pounds of admission in itself. Shrieking with scares of pleasure, this film succeeded on multiple levels and beyond. Simply impressed. I wouldn't call this sadistic like everyone's branding it similar to Hostel in fact after digging around the web, I found out that this wrapped before Hostel 2 even began production. Excellent job Mr. Joffe.
Elisha Cuthbert and Daniel Gillies did a real good job in the movie, there characters are great. Maybe the movie did too much of getting of the subject just to show she was a model and everything but overall it had plenty of fright and gore. The sudden surprises throughout the movie had be guessing and wondering what was coming next. I can't believe that the mpaa is really hampering its marketing efforts. I think they should just let it go, since this is a real good horror movie. I can not understand all the press of the billboards cause the gore in the movie is not something that will <more>
make a dead man turn over in the grave. This is a good movie with good gore and fright.
I don't typically go for the horror genre, and don't keep up with movie reviews, but I got off work early today and, feeling daring, went to see Captivity. And.... it was awesome. I'm not saying it changed my life, but it was just what I was looking for. I was worried about all the torture and gore that was supposed to be in it, but it turned out to be much more about psychological tricks than blood and guts. On the whole it's really not that graphic, which I'm sure for some people is a drawback, but I prefer to go easy on the stomach-turning, so it worked out for me. The <more>
story is quite simple, but sufficient. It is more of a framework in which a series of emotionally traumatizing challenges can be thrown upon our sweet, blonde heroine. Her co-star is a brooding mystery man, and it's fun to watch them interact in their concrete cell under the streets of New York. Anyone requiring a complicated, two hour saga that requires a lot of concentration and brain power should know that this is one of those "along for the ride" flicks, and if that is simply embraced, it's a pretty good ride.

What Captivity lacks in innovation it makes up for in style. Say what you will about plot holes and struggling performances, but the film looks beautiful, sounds great, and the atmosphere of the film will stay with you. Elisha Cuthbert's character is shallow, but appropriately so, as a naive fashion model who, even while in the deepest pit of misfortune, doesn't quite grasp what's going on. She keeps close to her teddy bear, apologizes for no apparent reason, and cries single tears... never ceasing to look picture perfect. This is one gripe I have with the film. The leading lady <more>
should show a little more wear and tear, in my opinion. I understand that the writer of Captivity claims to have based the character on Paris Hilton, and while I don't entirely believe that that's what the film was aiming for, it's an interesting comparison. In light of Hilton's recent incarceration, it's also a bit of commentary, however unintentional, on our culture's fascination with celebrities, the desire to be close to them, and to possess a piece of them.The looming, black gloved torturer is a smidge cliché, but it does the trick. It's a genre film, and certain symbols are to be expected and forgiven. Again, the set and sound design are spot-on, and that carries a lot of weaker areas through to the end.The editing is very choppy, due in part to the fact that a large portion of the original movie was removed and replaced with new material shot long after the original version ended production. The result is a cut-and-paste appearance which actually works quite well, given all the time Cuthbert's character spends going in and out of consciousness. It's almost an art film effect, hypnotic and disorienting.
Captivity's credits bill it as "a Russian-American coproduction," and it damn near warms the cockles of one's heart to see that the two countries that nearly brought us nuclear war can come together to make a movie about torturing a supermodel Elisha Cuthbert . Ah, capitalism. Surprising it took Lionsgate this long to do a decent rip-off of their Saw cash cow, but at least they took the time to do it right. Grungy warehouse rigged with ridiculously elaborate electronics, cameras, and traps? Check. Grotesque torture devices and "challenges" right out of a special <more>
snuff edition of Fear Factor? Definitely. Talented character actor Pruitt Taylor Vince, in this case cloaked in a black robe and a hidden agenda? You know it. Sure, there's no character development to speak of, and one or two plot points make no sense at all, but director Roland Joffe makes things visually interesting and aurally unsettling, and the story from B-movie maestro Larry Cohen keeps it simple: Girl needs to escape, but bad sh*t keeps happening. Screw the culture cops who freaked out over Captivity's graphic poster and always cry "torture porn"this is a gleefully nasty piece of red meat for horror hounds that delivers as promised. from the OC Weekly
