Atom Egoyan went to the Cannes Film Festival this spring with this latest effort, "The Captive," and the results were not good. Not even close. Our own Jessica Kiang noted that were boos scattered at her screening, and her savage reviewed called the film a "lurid, credulity-stretching" dud, and something of a "Prisoners"-lite as it also tackles a missing child, and the consequences that fall out on her parents and those around them.

Atom Egoyan went to the Cannes Film Festival this spring with this latest effort, "The Captive," and the results were not good. Not even close. Our own Jessica Kiang noted that were boos scattered at her screening, and her savage review called the film a "lurid, credulity-stretching" dud, and something of a "Prisoners"-lite as it also tackles a missing child, and the consequences that fall out on her parents and those around them.

Starring Ryan Reynolds, Scott Speedman, Mireille Enos, Rosario Dawson, Kevin Durand, Alexia Fast and Bruce Greenwood, the story centers around the disappearance of young girl, and what follows when eight years later, clues begin to surface that she's alive. What gets uncovered is something sinister, criminal and creepy, with the film hopping around in time, to tell a story of the investigation and much more. On paper it sounds like something decent, but in execution, it appears not to have worked. A new trailer is here for you to judge for yourself.

"The Captive" will open on September 5th. Watch below.
