Good movie to watch if you don't know the story

I saw this film without knowing anything about Brian Nichols and his story and I enjoyed it. I then saw the low ratings and mixed reviews and i wondered why. I'd classify it as drama/thriller: the tension is present throughout the movie but the main feature is the development of the two leading characters. David Oyelowo's acting is solid but it's above all Kate Mara's performance that strikes the viewer with her portrait of a troubled woman trying to make sense of her life. The interaction between the two, ranging from violent to almost tender, is another leitmotif. I guess knowing the ending takes away a lot of the suspense making it predictable hence my summary line. All cast is up to the task and delivers nuanced work.

Nothing special at all, too much God bullshit

It started all nice and I really thought it was going to be action and pursuits all the time but it quickly came down to a point I was just watching the movie with not much interest. When they finally started to speak about God and all that kind of crap it lost my attention completely and I just hoped the movie would end faster. Not that the actors were bad or so. They all did their job like they should but the story is just not good enough to be memorable even if it is based on a true story. I just wished it was not based on a true story and that they would have left the God thing out of the movie and maybe then it would have been something better and different. Now the end was just not good enough, certainly not when you saw the first steps of the criminal in the beginning. Good to watch once and then forget about it.

Good start, shame about the commercial

Meth addict Ashley is held hostage by escaped convict and murderer Brian Nichols. In order to try to avoid being killed, she reads to him from inspirational book The Purpose Drive Life.

This film is a fairly straightforward linear narrative, recounting the facts of Nichols' murderous escape from the courthouse, leading to his kidnapping Ashley, whereby the latter two thirds of the film becomes essentially a two-hander between Kate Mara as Ashley and David Oyelowo as Brian.

And I felt the film fell down here. Mara is very good, and Oyelowo is as good as he can be with a part which is underwritten, undeveloped, or just plain impossible to identify with: you understand Ashley perfectly, but I couldn't comprehend Brain at all. Oyelowo gives him a look which is halfway between blank and puzzled when he's not being angry, and I could never get to grips with the person there. And the hostage situation starts off well, but I don't much like inspirational books so, while it may well have helped Ashley, it did little for me, and I found the latter part of the film quite dull as a result. A shame, because it started well. I felt that what started as a suspense thriller turned out to be an extended commercial for a book which I had no interest in.
