... Ben Affleck is probably the last person most people thought capable of crafting such a perfectly realized movie, especially on his first time at bat.

Ben Affleck creates an authentic tone for the city of Boston, and then he gets great performances out of Casey Affleck, Ed Harris and the rest of the cast.

The reason why Gone Baby Gone works so well is the attention to which Boston is portrayed. The urban neighbourhood is like another character in an already strong cast, one that has needs and desires just like everyone else.

A crime thriller that redefines how character-centered stories can be approached.

Gone Baby Gone is a masterful work, going beyond the boundaries of simple detective thriller and into the realm of intelligent, morally complex drama.

The action and drama related to the taking of the girl and the unraveling of the mystery are inarguably engrossing, but sometimes twists and turns that work on the page are drained of impact once put to screen.

Better than the debuts of most actors-turned-directors in that it contains vision and perspective as opposed to concentrating mostly on performances

Casey Affleck gives one of the strongest performances of 2007...

Ben Affleck se gradúa de director con un drama policial oscuro y hasta polémico, hábilmente narrado y bien actuado. Lo de Amy Ryan es una revelación.

Under the shrewd eye of director Affleck, the film allows layers of details to work their magic, changing the emotional climate and sending the story off into several unexpected turns.

After a decade and a half of increasingly pointless acting jobs, Ben Affleck has finally found his calling.

Although it's far from the masterpiece of crime drama that most critics would lead you to believe, the movie is quite good -- a keenly observant film of life's ambiguities and nuances.

Affleck's non-acting effort is dark, scuzzy, and authentic.

'Gone Baby Gone' is a sobering, unreserved affair that manages maximum effectiveness despite a few ragged edges, unlikely scenarios and risky maneuvers.

I'm torn between thinking there should be more films like this or fewer. I love the moral discussions, the difficult Sophie's Choice decisions. On the other hand, how bleak, how wretched, how depressingly realistic.
