Anyone who pays even passing attention to the trailers and commercials for Prisoners may think they have a handle on what this movie is about: Hugh Jackman is an aggrieved father on the hunt for his kidnapped daughter, and he’ll leave no stone unturned — or face unpunched — until he finds her.

It’s Taken recast with Wolverine in the lead. The script pretty much writes itself, complete with vigilante violence, easy resolution and audience catharsis. Cue up Prisoners II for next year.

But that’s not what French Canadian director Denis Villeneuve (whose 2010 film, Incendies, was nominated for a Best Foreign-Language Film Oscar) and writer Aaron Guzikowski ( Contraband) have in mind. Grim, gray and surprisingly gruesome, Prisoners — the director’s first foray into English-language filmmaking — has its flaws, but predictability is not one of them.
