Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
It's all very well giving Amanda the power to vicariously avenge sex attacks, but it doesn't do much for gender relations.
It's daffy, but it works.
| Original Score: 3/5
It's fun watching Seyfried bluffing and conning her way through scene after scene; no opponent can best her.
Brazilian director Heitor Dhalia makes a decent fist of creating tension, utilising an eerie soundscape, the dark location elements to create unease.
It's never fully convincing in the way it lays out a bread-crumb trail for its suffering protagonist to follow to the truth. But it does find a little new life in a familiar formula.
| Original Score: B-
I could not decide whether it was absolute garbage or a work of sheer genius.
Seyfried has spent too much time lately in vehicles that aren't worthy of her. Gone at least takes her seriously - except when, to delicious effect, it doesn't.
| Original Score: 6.5/10
| Original Score: 2/5
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.
| Original Score: 1/5
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.
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.
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.
Just very silly.
Another squandering of Amanda Seyfried's talent, this low-mileage thriller won't be remembered for long.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
Gone and soon forgotten.
Everything about 'Gone' has the plasticy, leatherette feel of an imitation thriller.
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.
