Amanda Seyfried is back as she stars in this psychological thriller film. Gone rendered a mysterious plot that will keep it's viewers puzzled as the story goes on.
Jill (Amanda Seyfried) is now living with her sister Molly (Emily Wickersham) trying to get over the trauma she suffers from a serial killer a couple of years ago. One night she came home from work and Molly was gone. She is quickly convinced that her abductor is back for revenge from escaping him. She tells it about the police but they never believed in her story. This leaves Jill to gather some clues and hunt her kidnapper with short hopes to see her sister alive.
A lot of critics bashed this film but for us the movie was not bad at all. The story moves straight forward with some good twists. You'll feel that Jill's character is just insane and the movie will have a crappy ending. Well the answer is no, a reasonable ending was given to the movie but a cheap confrontation between Jill and her abductor was badly made. Seyfried's performance grabs our attention as she sells her emotions well in some moments of the film. Her acting seems so natural and she is getting better as her career goes on. Its been new to us to see her in a thriller movie as we got used to see her on romantic or comedy flicks.
Overall Gone was really interesting but just failed to deliver a little intensity in one important part of the film. It's an entertaining movie that will keep you guessing as the story progresses. Amanda Seyfried is one of the good reasons why you should watch it and a 2D version of the film is a much better way to make your moneys worth. A 90 minutes decent thriller flick that will entertain you right from the very beginning.
