Elaborate and atmospheric, Atom Egoyan retreads familiar territory of grieving parents and missing children unfortunately with nothing new to add. The pulpy elements work really well and much of the cast perform more than admirably, especially Ryan Reynolds who yet again gives a terrific performance in a movie that probably won't get him enough recognition. Honestly, I would have loved for him and Ben Affleck to have traded places with this flick and Gone Girl. It is just so dour and melodramatic it grows tiresome very quickly.
