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.
Dhalia's Gone is what it is -- a relatively suspenseful action-thriller, comprised of all the building blocks one would expect from the genre whilst conforming to all of its rules and stylistic tendencies.
Clearly no one in the movie has the 'find' app on the iPhones they all carry, otherwise the movie would be over before it began. Seyfried is a beautiful actress, clearly capable of anchoring a film, but she needs to be a tad more discerning.
It's a nonsensical mix of women-in-peril films with girl-power feminism that seems to confuse conviction with sociopathy.
It's not innovative and the film is very basic despite the attempt to give it depth. However, it's rather fast paced and Seyfried makes for a very watchable heroine, even if her character makes little sense and is unworthy of her talent.
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.
Dhalia's first Hollywood film is this efficient thriller that relies on a constant tension and on the uncertainty surrounding a kidnapping that may only be a product of the protagonist's fear and paranoia. A solid movie but almost ruined by an implausible end.
Jill must solve her sister's kidnapping on her own - because the police think she is crazy. Jill does a lot of work in one day, but something was unsatisfying about the movie - perhaps its lack of realism.
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...
