At 8:34 when Rachel takes the latex gloves out of her pocket and puts them on her hands to give Philip a dental exam, she should not have done that because the latex gloves are no longer sterile after being in her pocket, she should have got a fresh pair of gloves from the box as those are sterile.

Ormond is beautiful, Roth is stunning, both are intense.
29 December 1998 | by the bibsSee all my reviews

I just got finished viewing Captives and I liked it A lot. I guess it was Tim Roth's interaction with Ormond that drew me in and stopped me from switching channels. A lot of dialogue was spoken not with words, but with expressions. And the more I think about it, the more I feel the movie kept a constant level of tension throughout. As for believability, I know love can be blind, having been in love myself and that thought, for me, kept the movie alive. I give it a big thumb's up.
