It happens on a happy Thanksgiving: Two families who have gathered to celebrate discover their daughters have disappeared. While there’s a cop on the case (Jake Gyllenhaal), one of the fathers (Hugh Jackman) decides to take matters into his own hands (with some unpleasant results). This isn’t really a revenge flick, as much as an often intense crime drama. The cast is uniformly excellent and much of the movie is compelling, but the 2 1/2-hour length could have used some cutting. Much of the middle simply drags on. That being said, it’s a complex story that’s effectively told.
