    I dont like this movie. Its quiet boring with a standart twist in the middle of the film. And iam disappointed that there is not much gore or splatter. I wanted a movie that is a torture porn movie and not a teenager movie. Saw and hostel by far better that this. Full Review »

    Saw meets Hostel in this entertaining, but painfully predictable film. Elisha Cuthbert is the difference between Captivity and the dozens of lame horror movies produced every year.

The veteran actress, best known as Kim Bauer and The Girl Next Door, is very methodical with every move she makes and that really manages to keep your attention. The maze of traps, moving walls, and pitfalls were also really cool, but outside of that and Cuthbert, Captivity is your typical gore fest, with zero character development, and a chilling story that really doesn't make a whole lot of sense. I liked it for the little things, but overall, there's nothing special here, just another lame horror movie, that happened to land the right star. Full Review »
