“Prisoners,” a child-abduction crime thriller, practically shouts a question at its audience: What would you do? What are you capable of when pressed into a very black corner?
At least, that's what most of the movie seems to be doing, exploring moral ambiguity that imprisons just about every character before this dark tale is over.
