‘Faith. Redemption. Survival.’ That’s what the poster for Captive says it’s all about. Sounds interesting. Or rather it might sound interesting if there weren’t a zillion billion other Hollywood movies about the same thing. Could be great. Probably won’t be. That’s what we have to say about Captive.

There was a Ryan Reynold’s film that came out last year called The Captive, and any film that makes us accidentally Google a Ryan Reynold’s film is already at a disadvantage in our esteem. Anyway, it’s out later this year, for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness in health, until something something…
