The film was heavily re-shot to turn it from a thriller to a torture/horror film. This is extremely evident in Elisha Cuthbert's hairstyle. It changes throughout the movie. In the first shoot her hair was more of a shag style, while in the re-shoot it is all one length. Her hair often changes in the middle of scenes (e.g. running from one room with a shag style but entering the next room with different hairstyle.) See more »
In the scene after Jennifer puts on her dress her hair goes from newly done to messy twice. See more »

You see I saw another movie yesterday (9 July 07) about being trapped in a room which may have been to the detriment of Captivity. While in general the idea was good there was something not quite thrilling enough. Captivity borrowed from a smattering of other movies without really living up to any of them.
It was nice to see Elisha doing something different, and as always pleasant enough to see her in a film.. but I felt little empathy for her character or indeed, that of her companion.
Not psychological enough to be another Silence of the Lambs or 1408, and not horror / gore enough to be another Saw, Cube or Hostel.
