Captive DVD review & giveaway

Today because its Thursday and cold around these parts I have a review and giveaway for you.  Thanks to FlyBy Promotions I had the opportunity to watch and review “Captive”. It’s a true story about a woman who was held hostage in her own home. Here is a bit more about the movie: unnamed

Based on a miraculous story about the power of faith, Captive is an “amazing, inspiring” drama about the spiritual collision of two lost souls, Brian Nichols (Golden Globe Nominee David Oyelowo), on the run from police and desperate to make contact with his newborn son, takes recently widowed mother Ashley Smith (Kata Mara) hostage in her own apartment.  Fearing for her life and desperately hoping to see her daughter again, she turns to Rick Warren’s The Purpose Driven Life for guidance.  Ashley and her captor face a crossroads where they discover hope and light in the midst of despair in the moving film that Dick Rolfe, CEO, Dove Foundation hailed as “powerful.” 

DVD Release Date: January 5, 2016

There are over 30 minutes of bonus content on this DVD including Journey Through Darkness: Filming Captive and Faith and The Purpose Driven Life.  Also included with this DVD is a Digital HD copy that can be instantly streamed and downloaded. 

My Review:

I enjoyed this movie. I was surprised by the amount of actors that I had seen before from the main stream.  The story is very dramatic. There is not a lot of twists and turns to it, which I like. It seems to have kept to the reality of the situation well. I do remember this happening and hearing about it on the news.   It’s not an “action” movie this is a drama that really happened. Because of that, it may feel slow at times.  Over all I felt the movie was very well made. The actors protrayed the roles believably and I felt the story had the desired affect.
