Captivated
31 December 2008 | by biondi625See all my reviews

I was browsing the net just looking for stuff, you know anything and on one of those days... I wasn't even looking for media to watch. Actually, I haven't seen an independent film in years. I don't watch my TV either because everything is predictable and blah, blah, blah.

Well, I stumbled across this movie and right from the start it captivated me. I was really involved and was routing for the main character all the way. The ending also surprised me and therefore it is considered in my view a very good movie. I really would like to see a part 2 soon and I hope these people get funding for more.

I hate predictable movies! This movie was really good! Therefore, Igive this movie a 10+ out of 10.
