The movie was fun to watch, as the protagonist told various series of lies towards finding her sister. I guess it is not all the time the cops are your friend and you may have to take matters into your own hands if you want to get something done.

Gone may not be a masterpiece, but it will capture your attention, one thing a lot of movies seem to lack. The main act that does catch your attention is Amanda Seyfried, who plays Jill Conway.

The script can’t be faulted but the story maybe. As I said before, the movie kept me inching to see what will happen next, I kept thinking will she find Molly or is she crazy.

There was a part where continuity was lacking, don’t know if there was a deleted scene but there was a time she got into the restroom to get away from the cops, and then there was her escape. I didn’t seem to see what happened there.

Directed by Heitor Dhalia who I have to say I don’t know anything about.

The plot of the movie is easy to follow, Jill believed that she was onetime kidnapped and thrown into a hole and she managed to get herself free. After that she became paranoid and took all defensive measures not to have that incident happen again. The problem with her choice was, the measures led to her being committed in a psych ward. After leaving the hospital she starts a new life leaving with her sister.

One day after work Jill comes home to find her sister Molly missing. She calls the cops but they don’t believe her, now she starts to hunt everywhere to find her sister Molly.

Amanda Seyfried acting again was above everyone else. This happened in the movie Red Riding Hood (2011), where every other cast just show cased mediocrity in their acting compared to hers. In this movie flick I witnessed the same thing, it was like everyone was not interested in what was going on but she. I have to give it to Amanda she is good at what she does and deserves better roles.

The cinematography could have been better, many lapses in shots, but not that bad that you will notice anything if you weren’t looking for it.

All in all, Gone is a good movie and I don’t mind saying if you are free nothing else great to see try this for size.
