Captivating
17 June 2002 | by (Montreal, Canada.) – See all my reviews

CAPTIVE/ I suspect that the director didn't have a good script to work on and a decent budget to work with. Altough CAPTIVE is a simple story, predictable at times, it remains a consistent piece of dark drama.

Erika Eleniak and Michael Ironside are very convincing in their roles. but it's an unknown actor Noël Burton that steals the show as Dr.Haggar. I wish we see more of this actor in other movies.

Out of 10, I give it 6/
