    I spent all night tossing and turning, sleep deciding to ignore my wishes. It wasn't a huge dilemma. After all, I had one more day to get accustomed to Reaper HQ before returning to work.

    Held an Overall Captive of Prisoners Written by Aaron Guzikowski and directed by Denis Villeneuve, the film Prisoners, was released in the fall of 2013 (IMDb). While the film offers a universal theme of “what would you do if your child went missing?”, has a substantial plot that is riddled with religious references and symbols, filled with twists and turns, and a superb cast of well-known actors, the movie fails because of its plot predictability, an unsatisfying ending and portrayals of characters
