This movie was one shown on the network television here that I recorded a few weeks ago to watch. Poor people television here isn't too bad, I find enough to fill my hours and my needs, and often movies like this will be on at midnight over the weekend, too late for me but ok for my DVR.

A bit of a grim choice for my Saturday night viewing, and pretty intense.  It is the story of parents of two little girls who disappear after a family dinner together.  When a suspect is found, he is then released after questioning by detectives.  However the father of one of the victims finds him, and takes him where they then question him themselves.  An interesting premise, for if any of us were in the same position isn't that exactly what we would want to do.  I have no tolerance for violence towards children or animals.  None.

An awesome cast too populates this movie - Hugh Jackman, Terence Howard, Viola Davis, Maria Bello and Jake Gyllenhaal.  I liked the style of the movie, not over Hollwooded with a modest home, normal clothes and budget vehicles. I am a bit over the shows where the average family being depicted is living in a $3 million dollar home wearing Gucci.

I've been intrigued by this one for a while, but I just don't care for movies about children in realistic danger - fantasy stories and children's adventures don't count. So I don't know if I'd care to see it, as good as it sounds.
