Film lovers are hailing Prisoners as one of the most underrated movies of all time. You can see a trailer here:

The 2013 flick, which is currently available on Netflix, stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Hugh Jackman centres on the abduction of two young girls.

Keller Dover (Jackman) and his family are celebrating Thanksgiving with their friends the Birches, when their two young daughters go missing.

After raising the alarm Detective Loki (Gyllenhaal) takes on the case - but when the chief suspect in their disappearance is released without charge Dover decides to take matters into his own hands and kidnap him in an attempt to find out where the missing girls are.

The movie, directed by Denis Villeneuve, also stars Viola Davis, Terrance Howard and Paul Dano.

The dark thriller has had movie fans on the edge of their seats, with many claiming it's a hidden gem.

Posting on Twitter one person said: "Prisoners is one of the most underrated films from the past decade. Simple, but thrilling!"

Another wrote: "Prisoners... Life changing. Masterpiece. Haunts me still."

While a third person commented: "Prisoners is SUCH a difficult to watch due to what it explores, but this movie is absolutely phenomenal.

"Villeneuve's craft is on full display, and Jackman gives one of his best performances ever. It is one of my all-time favourites, and I can't praise it enough."

Someone else tweeted: "In my opinion Prisoners is one of the most underrated movies I've ever seen...

"The fact that it wasn't even Nominated for Best Picture in 2014 is so unfair and I think it deserved more recognition."

Warner Bros

And if that's not enough to convince you, Prisoners also has a very hefty 8.1/10 on IMDB and 81 perfect on Rotten Tomatoes.

The movie was selected by the US' National Board of Review as one of the top ten movies of 2013.

It was also widely praised by critics at the time of its release, with Cinema Blend calling it 'an enthralling mystery' with 'blistering performances' and 'stunning filmmaking'.

And the Guardian's Mark Kermode branding it 'a tense and engaging thriller'.

While Digital Spy warned audiences, 'you won't be able to take your eyes off it for a second'.
