Storyline

Captive is an original screenplay that follows John Rancour - an aging, corrupt detective on the run for murdering a fellow police officer in cold blood. With enemies on both sides of the law wanting him dead - Rancour has no choice but to seek help from the very man that exposed his crimes and sent him into exile - journalist Tyler Chase. Rancour takes Tyler captive, forcing him to tag-along on a one-night race against time to expose and eradicate the system of corruption that he helped create in his years on the force. Complicating matters further is Rancour's former partner and best-friend, Detective Frank Hanaway, who wants nothing more than to stop the pair from making it through the night alive. As the night wears on and the bodies begin to pile up in their wake, Tyler starts to believe that there is more to John Rancour and his motives than he originally accused; and that the people and places he witnesses could lead to a bigger story than he ever thought possible.

Shot well, looks great.
15 May 2013 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

First act fails to pull you in story wise, but the characters are interesting. the side characters interest me more than the main ones to be honest. By the time the second act hits, you've accepted that it's an action film and are just in for the ride. Story could have been written with less clichés and thrown in more character development.

*SPOILER* The third act of the film ties up all the loose ends and satisfies your needs from what you'd expect from this type of film. *END OF SPOILER*

The cinematography was great and there are a few shots that are intriguing and eye candy from the director.

I would give this movie a watch just to see how a Feature Film can be shot in 14 days. Pretty impressive for what it is and being made within Vancouver Film School. Check it out!
