Top cover girl and fashion model, Jennifer Tree has it all - beauty, fame, money and power. Her face appears on covers of hundreds of magazines. At the top of her game, Jennifer is America's sweetheart. She is loved and adored and sought after. Everyone wants her. But someone out there has been watching and waiting. Someone wants her in the worst way. Out alone at a charity event in Soho, Jennifer is drugged and taken. Held captive in a cell, Jennifer is subjected to a series of terrifying, life-threatening tortures that could only be conceived by a twisted, sadistic mind. It follows the story of one woman who is abducted and tortured, held against her will in a place where days turn into weeks.Written by

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 »

"Captivity" is a movie that looks good and has great sound! It has almost the same visual style seen in "Saw"! Plot wise this movie is not so great! It isn't bad either! Most of the story is pretty predictable and very obvious! The characters don't have any depth! Which could have made things a lot more interesting! This model is taken and locked up! It is like she is some sort of guinea pig! There is no (real) motive given for why this is happening! At least in "Saw" the killer has a motive for his sick ways! I wasn't expecting much so in that sense it doesn't matter much! Even when the story isn't original it still can be enjoyable! The biggest problem for me was the lack of tension! You never have the feeling that Elisha Cuthbert really is in trouble! She even has sex with another man while she is captured! Come on when you are taken by someone and you don't know what is happening you are scared to death! Let alone having sex with someone! Utterly ridiculous! And like in many movies like this Elisha acts pretty stupid sometimes! Very annoying to see! The only redeeming factor in this movie of course is Elisha Cuthbert! She is a beautiful girl and will be the sole reason for many (male)viewers to watch this movie! "Captivity" doesn't come close to "Saw" or another similar title! It is just ordinary! If you don't expect much than this movie is watchable!
