PRO REVIEWS ----------------------------------------
"The film is scrupulous in recreating events in realistic settings, adding little dramatic invention to the true story. What it actually lacks is a spark of storytelling that would pull it out of the historical recreation category" (Deborah Young: The Hollywood Reporter)
"Filipino director Brillante Mendoza returns to the provocative territory of his 2009 shocker 'Kinatay' with 'Captive', another grim kidnapping story, this one far weaker in terms of both shock and quality" (Eric Kohn: Indiewire)
"[It] is relentless in its action and starved of the deeper characterisation and human interaction that could have leant insight into the controversial issues of religion and humanity it raises" (Mike Goodridge: Screendaily)
"The film exerts a queasy power that gradually gives way to lumbering issues of government indifference in this pre- and post-9/11 tragedy" (Justin Chang: Variety)
