WOW! This movie was absolutely mind blowing! I had never experienced the affect of being in a movie theater where the intensity of the film had me at the edge of my seat! In my eyes, this movie is absolutely outstanding! Hugh Jackman proved to me to be one of the most talented actors I’ve ever viewed on the screen. He is right at the tope with Jake Gyllenhaal. Both men are extremely outstanding actors. Jake plays one of the best detectives I have ever seen in a film, or better yet in a series. Words cannot describe his performance. Erin Gerasimovich and Kyla Drew Simmons play the two young girls in the movie who go missing. Both proved to be very talented actresses especially portraying the difficult physical and emotional challenges they faced and what they had to endure. The young girls pulled off extremely tough roles given their very young age. You could actually feel the emotions they were going through because the writer, Aaron Guzikowski, wrote such an absolutely magnificent script. Aaron is an amazing writer keeping you at the edge of your seat not knowing what will happen next. Aaron was able to get inside the minds of the family members of the missing girls as did the director of the film, Denis Villeneuve. Denis, a director with great potential, seems to know his stuff — Steven Spielberg, watch out, there’s a new director in town Denis Villeneuve! Denis captures each scene of this movie exquisitely with so much excitement and drama, this movie radiates because of him! As I see it, you will most likely see this film nominated by major award shows for best film, best director, best script, best actor nomination for Hugh Jackman and best supporting actor, Jake Gyllenhaal.
This movie is truly epic! I give this movie an “A++”!
