Critic Reviews for Captives

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (1)

It leaves the cavities it touches upon not filled.

October 12, 2008 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

Ormond and Roth, turning in nicely understated performances, generate the requisite heat, but the film never does.

January 8, 2005 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Suspension of disbelief is one thing, but this movie was asking too much.

Audience Reviews for Captives

Potential was there, but missed at every turn. Missed as a thriller- no suspense really. Missed as a steamy romance, despite featuring the beautiful Julia Ormond. Weak plot...and abrupt ending.
