    Ben Affleck's directorial and screenplay efforts are a fascinating take in Gone Baby Gone. The film puts you in a vice-like grip with its emotional story, enthralling performances and even its striking and divisive twist that is emphatic and brilliant in every way. 4.5/5

    The twist in the end that really got me as well as the performances, story and overall film really shows Ben Affleck's skill at directing as well as his future with other projects. Check it out!

    Disconcertingly intelligent and marvelously scripted, Gone Baby Gone isn't an easy film to come to terms with, but it's well worth putting in the effort.

    There is a heart to Gone Baby Gone that sucks the viewer in and grabs them from the second the film starts. Ben Affleck directs his brother Casey Affleck to perfection, displaying Casey in one of the best roles of his career. The story is told brilliantly, almost in two separate parts, and raising almost unanswerable dilemmas that the characters face. Gone Baby Gone delivers gripping situations and rich character development in a way unmatched by any similar missing children storylines.
