Everything about 'Gone' has the plasticy, leatherette feel of an imitation thriller.

Gifted and sincere as she always is, there's not much Ms. Seyfried can do with this tripe.

It's a significant letdown that after all Jill's running, and all the guessing Seyfried makes us do, the climactic confrontation plays like an uninspired afterthought.

A movie that makes "Murder on the Orient Express" feel like"The Silence of the Lambs"by comparison.

No money should ever change hands in any Gone-related interaction, unless it is because you are buying matches and gasoline to set all the copies of it on fire.

Siblings aren't the only things missing from Gone: Suspense, scares and common sense are all likewise MIA.

Unbelievably lazy.

By the end of Gone you'll be convinced that it's just a low-rent reworking of The Silence of the Lambs, with Seyfried's humongous peepers a sad substitute for Jodie Foster's acting chops.

With 'friends' like this movie, the feminist cause doesn't need enemies... [E]ven if Jill isn't crazy... she's still crazy, because she does not behave like a sane person.

It's all very well giving Amanda the power to vicariously avenge sex attacks, but it doesn't do much for gender relations.

Seyfried shows she's not the kind of actress who would be an easy victim in a Scream movie.

It's one of those Hollywood movies that goes in one eye and out the other.

It's daffy, but it works.

April 19, 2012 Full Review Source: Guardian

Despite Seyfried's suitably wide-eyed performance, director Heitor Dhalia holds too loose a grip on the suspense, driving the film into a succession of dramatic dead ends.

Another squandering of Amanda Seyfried's talent, this low-mileage thriller won't be remembered for long.

The shortfall of suspense is emphasised with every pointless car chase, head-slapping contrivance, and attempt at tongue-in-cheekiness. This movie can seriously damage your IQ.

Seyfried does yeoman's work here -- but she has been in her share of clunkers and deserves better material.

A psychological thriller lacking in both psychological complexity and thrills.

April 2, 2012 Full Review Source: Screenwize

There's nothing in the film - which lacks urgency - or Seyfried's eyes or physical demeanor that suggests panic, fear, desperation.

The ending, which will not be discussed here, is jaw-droppingly stupid. "Gone" is a slow-moving thriller that doesn't make sense. Paul Chambers, CNN.

Just try not to hold the characters' behavior to any standard of the actual humans you may have crossed paths with in your life, and everything is fine.

Audience Reviews for Gone

Liked it. Nothing amazing and a bit silly at times, but Amanda Seyfried is good and there's just enough doubt about her sanity through this to keep it interesting.

19/4/14. Updating this from 3 to 4 stars. Not sure why I found it silly on first watch. I had forgotten most of it when I rewatched it tonight, and if found it a really good suspense film.

Not bad..not great. Liked the ending scene. Decent movie, based on today's standards (since I think most thrillers nowadays pretty much suck). Amanda is a good actress, so that definitely made it worth the watch...

Really surprised by the general panning this film has taken. Whilst not perfect the story whizzes along and breakneck pace and is never boring. This movie won't change your life, but for sheer bloody minded entertainment, it hits all the right spots.
