Not a good write but still hate this movie
7 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First of all i figured this movie, for the most part was going to be bad. But i am into horror/torture/gore films which this is made out to be so i checked it out. Luckily I just bought the bootleg and wasted five dollars opposed to ten to see this trash in theaters. Captivity is more or less a saw knockoff minus the gore and excitement. Lets see an insane individual captures and tortures his /her victim in inhumane ways seen it loads of times. More times then none it's a bad movie in this genre and this it just that. But what crappy movies make up for in script and acting is usually loads of gore, this could have been pg-13, I don't get why its not, if they took out the f -bombs in this, done pg-13 movie and it would have made more money reaching a younger audience. The acting also of Cuthbert is so cheesy and fake, and all the event throughout the movie are unlike any other torture movies I've seen and that's not a good thing. I don't want to give anything away but I should give it all away so other people save their time and money. I'm going to stop there because all want to do is rip on this movie scene by scene. Also might add the garbage director seems to be obsessed with shooting off mirrors and windows, its gives a real nice garbage view and its confuses you when he move form the mirror and films its straight on. Anyone in their right mind don't see this don't even think of seeing it because if you like this genre of film of kidnapping torturing and gore this movie is not that. it's a move of a dumb blonde and her dumb movie.
