A small-town carpenter turns vigilante in order to rescue his abducted daughter and her best friend in this thriller starring Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal. Six-year-old Anna and her friend Joy have vanished on Thanksgiving without a trace. Devastated, Anna's father Keller (Jackman) makes note of a run-down RV that had been parked on their street at the exact time the girls went missing. When the driver, Alex Jones (Paul Dano) is swiftly arrested by Detective Loki (Gyllenhaal), it starts to look like the lead will pay off. Alex, however, is quickly released due to lack of evidence, sending Keller into a frenzy as he realizes that if Anna isn't found soon, odds are she never will be. Knowing that time is not on his side, and ignoring Detective Loki's pleas to leave the case to the pros, Keller risks sacrificing his own freedom in a bid to locate the girls before it's too late. Melissa Leo, Maria Bello, Terrence Howard, and Viola Davis co-star.
Great cast and production, but with a thin script that seems to want to explore questions of faith and of the nature of evil, but mainly just settles for cheap thrills.
Intense, compelling and very real. Great story!
