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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
