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.
Gone but not forgotten.
...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.
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.
Your average run of the mill psycho psychological thriller. Although it follows all the regular plot patterns it does have some nice visuals of the vast dry landscapes of Australia. Mechlowicz also proves his worth by creating a chilled but eerie character despite a real motivation. Evans is also good but lacks a character that demonstrates any real need, and he comes off as unsympathetic. It builds up nice and slow. with some unsettling mystery thrown in, but not much happens until the end where everything is wrapped up very quickly. Watch it for the acting and cinematography and try not to expect too much from the plot, especially if you've seen The Hitcher (although this is better than the remake). The final shot, with the wailing vocals is very emotive and the rest of the film should have felt as powerful.
