I'd say Gone is a shoo-in for one of the worst movies of 2012, except no one will remember it even existed by December.

It's fun watching Seyfried bluffing and conning her way through scene after scene; no opponent can best her.

Gone wasn't screened in advance for critics and opened to a desultory $4.8 million gross. Anybody interested in seeing it better head to the theater posthaste, because after a couple more weeks, this mediocre effort is sure to be gone, baby, gone.

So lame the only scare during the first hour is the old cat-jumping-into-frame trick.

Put this on Lifetime and it might find an audience, but on the big screen nobody cares

There's little to recommend this B-grade, formulaic affair. The plot is tosh, the dialogue hackneyed at best.

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

A tepid, silly thriller that would barely pass muster as basic cable fare...'Gone' should never have arrived.

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.

The only thing worthwhile is seeing Portland (the filming location) on the big screen. It proves this landscape would be good for a thriller/horror, just not this one.

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.

...suspension of disbelief seems damn near impossible.

... a minor entry in the Kiss the Girls/Along Came a Spider line ... Seyfried isn't the least bit convincing in a role that called for hysteria cut with outrage. She manages little-girl peevishness.

Brazilian director Heitor Dhalia makes a decent fist of creating tension, utilising an eerie soundscape, the dark location elements to create unease.

It lies there flapping like a dying fish. Skip it.

Is director Heitor Dhalia's non-thrilling new thriller a condemnation of police ineptitude or his own?

Which stinks worse? The absurdly large pile of red herrings Gone amasses? Or the film's sub-Scooby Doo conclusion?
