    " really like this movie as I have watched it several times. I love this genre. There was a message behind this movie that I liked & one I didn't care for. Politics do not belong in movies they aren't about, their tactics to push an agenda are quite annoying. If you can get past that & enjoy the movie for what it is, then you won't be disappointed. I wasn't."

    "An amazing thriller that kept me on the edge of my seat, virtually from start to finish. Fine performances, especially from Jake Gyllenhaal and of course, Mark Ruffalo and Robert Downey Jr. didn't disappoint, either. "

    "I remember seeing this film with my friend when it first came out. It was strange to see a romance from this perspective, and I have to say it really opened my eyes. The film made a big splash and I like to think played a major role in shaping the cultural conversation around LGBT acceptance. Gyllenhall was great in it, as always!"

    "Nightcrawler was the first movie that I have seen Jake Gyllenhaal in and after that I checked his other movies. Source Code is an OK movie but not decent enough to be as one of his best movies. I like the mystery of the movie but there is unnecessary romance which was ruining the plot."

    "Prisoners is an okay movie. I am a fan of Jake Gyllenhaal and he gives a great performance here as usual. However, I would not rank this in with his top films. The plot line is a bit lacking and never managed to really pull me into the story."

    "It's Jennifer Aniston in a romance, and so it's not going to be anything great. It's a little different but nothing worthwhile. OK compared to modern trash though."
