I give this movie 4 out of 5 stars. This was a great movie starring Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal. It was an average day in the life of Keller Dover (Hugh Jackman) and his wife Grace Dover (Maria Bello) They decided to go for a walk to visit some friends in the neighborhood. Their daughter Anna and their friend's daughter Joy go for a bike ride around the neighborhood while the grownups chat. However when it was time for the girls to come inside they were no where to be found. The only clue to their whereabouts is a dilapidated RV that was parked outside in the street earlier. This movie takes you on a thrilling and puzzling tale of a father that would do anything to find his daughter and a cop that is trying to do the same. Heading the investigation is Detective Lokie (Jake Gyllenhaal), he arrests the driver of the RV, Alex Jones (Paul Dano), but sadly lack of evidence forces his release. Police get several leads but they all fall short and knowing that his child's life is in danger Keller decides to take matters into his own hands. It keeps you guessing the whole way through and has a twist ending that I never saw coming. The cast did a excellent job and if you haven't watched this yet please do, you won't be let down. -Candie Bradfield
