Prisoners review

Acclaimed thriller asks 'How far is too far?' when it comes to the lives of your loved-ones

Excellent performances from Jake Gyllenhaal and Hugh Jackman are the twin driving forces behind the success of this morally murky thriller about two kidnapped children and a father willing to go to any length to find them. The dour nature of the story extends to the film's aesthetics, something that this Blu-ray handles very well with its nuanced AVC 1.78:1 1080p encode and brooding DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack. It's just a pity that there are so few extras – all you get are a pair of short promo featurettes. But with the film clocking in at 153 minutes, maybe there just wasn't room for anything else.
