Editorial Reviews

CAPTIVES is a thought-provoking thriller that centers on the relationships of two married couples. The first couple, Neil and Jane, arrives in Los Angeles on vacation. Neil is overbearing, and lectures his wife on the dangers of the big city, advising her to stay close, where he can see her. Jane dutifully listens, but quietly resents Neil's smothering attitude. Before they have a chance to repair their strained relationship, Jane mysteriously vanishes in the middle of a sightseeing excursion.

Meanwhile, another young couple sets off on a vacation of their own. Jim and Naomi take off on a cross-country road trip. They are thrill-seekers, off to find the next adventure around the corner. Jim has meticulously planned out their itinerary. However, free-spirited Naomi throws Jim's plans to the wind, taking their journey off the beaten path. Naomi's insistence on breaking from Jim's precautions just might lead them someplace neither one of them was prepared for.

The two couples deal with surprising turns in their journeys, and when their paths cross unexpectedly, a tragic chain of events unfold that will change all of their lives forever.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the Greatest Thriller Movie December 2, 2010
By MEEng
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Well, to start off with, this is definitely a thriller mystery movie. If you're looking for copious amounts of gore, violence and nudity, stop reading and don't watch this movie.
The movie makes an earnest effort to bring back the classic thriller mystery. With that said, there is a large amount of improvement that could have been done. The plot is actually solid. Two couples meet by accident (one couple is on vacation and their car breaks down in front of the other couple's house). They get to talking over dinner about what would make life interesting, and come up with the idea that breaking the law brings the most thrills. This launches a moral dilemma of a crime in which no one gets hurt, and they decide that kidnapping with both parties' consent is ideal, but leave it as just a discussion. Later on, the "boring" couple calls the "interesting" couple to ask them to kidnap them. Then the kidnapping goes awry...
They fragment and mix the plot in a Pulp Fiction/grindhouse fashion, but don't do it in a way that is interesting. It actually distracts from the plot in the beginning of the movie, but gets better at the end. But the main distraction is the acting. The acting is pretty poor, so I wasn't able to get into the movie as much, and it detracted from any character development. I think, in some cases, the same actor acted differently in different parts of the movie.
Overall, I'd say it's an OK movie. If you have to make a choice, rent instead of buying. While the acting could use improvement, the director put forth a good effort and, with a solid plot backing, made a thriller-mystery that is better than the typical horror/slasher movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars Another poorly made movie. February 6, 2013
By rstark
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
If you want to see a good horror movie, rent one that was released in the theaters. This was a waste of time. If you want to support an independent film maker, go for it.

3.0 out of 5 stars coulda been better October 23, 2013
By Bobrox
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
two couples meet and become "friends". one housewife is bored and wants a little excitement,i.e. to be kidnapped by the other couple. she makes the mistake of not telling her husband, who ends up fighting for their lives.... tries to be too clever with quick flashbacks , which I hate. decent acting, but could have worked a lot better.
