Movie Info

The Ringan Ledwidge-directed, Andrew Upton and James Watkins-scripted psychological thriller Gone (a U.S.-British-Australian co-production) follows in the footsteps of such shockers as The Company of Strangers and Kalifornia, as several innocent, unwitting young travelers inadvertently find themselves at the mercy of a psychotic outsider who poses as a Good Samaritan. The story unfolds in the Australian outback, with Alex (Shaun Evans) en route to visit his girlfriend Sophie (Amelia Warner) in

First-time director Ringan Ledwidge conjures up an effectively creepy mood to accompany three young backpackers on an ill-fated road trip across the Aussie desert.

...suffers from an egregiously laid-back pace that ultimately negates its few positive attributes...

Debut feature for tv commercials director Ringan Ledwidge shows he has an innate sense of cinema, and handles the genre well and the outback looks gritty but great

Solid direction and well shot visuals cannot overcome the inherent problems from the mixed performances, thin script, off-putting characterizations, and languished pacing

In the end, the script lets the film down with its obvious twists, its naggingly illogical narrative and a general pointlessness.

A final reel of arterial spray splatter empties itself in record time and when Gone finally gets going, it's gone too soon.

You may be able to work out where it's going, but it's an enjoyable ride nonetheless.

You will be kept waiting for the twist that never comes in Ringan Ledwidge's derivative psycho-thriller, whose by-the-numbers plotting is as inevitable as roadkill.

If only it had taken the characters' lead and strayed further from the beaten track...

A potentially menacing first half is let down by a few cliches in the home stretch.

Audience Reviews for Gone

The dullest and most boring thriller I've seen for a while. Very little happens until the last 10 minutes and even then, it is a cliche-ridden mess that will either have you shouting at the screen or looking at the TV guide to see what else is on. Honestly, it's so slow and most of the the scenes are pointless filler. It's predictable too but I'm a firm believer that you have to see a film before you can review it honestly, so I did and I just have. Rubbish.

This thriller story set against the searing skies of Australia's brutally beautiful outback is familiar between the true story of British's Joanna Lees and Australia's Wolf Creek. But it's different on about a friendly stranger who was trying to take over the British backpacker's girlfriend.

Very average psychological drama with no surprises but acceptable performances.

"In the tradition of WOLF CREEK" it says, but it's really more like THE HITCHER... if you took all the thrills from that movie and stuffed them into the last five minutes. Largely unimpressed by this one.
