Gone Girl is based on the best-selling novel written by Gillian Flynn. Nick Dunne is a self-styled “salt-of-the-earth” Midwestern has a blissful married life with his beautiful wife Amy but begun to crumble when Nick reports that his beautiful wife Amy has abruptly gone missing on the occasion of their fifth wedding anniversary. Nick’s lies, secrets and strange behavior begun to unravel under the pressure from the media and the police.

Nick returns home from the pub he co-owns with his sister and found his wife missing with evidence of struggle, a broken glass. Nick and his wife’s parents appealed to the media to help find Amy which turned into a tabloid sensation. Nick has to hire a lawyer as he became a chief suspect and also to handle the issue of him becoming “the most hated man in America”.

Gone Girl 2

Gone Girl is stylish, dark and intelligent; good story, good plot with very good character development and greatly adapted from the novel. The movie starts with whodunit with the first half a very intense crime thriller until the middle with the “big-reveal” which turns the movie into a telenovela/melodrama until the end. Overall the movie is recommended; it is a stylish whodunit movie.

Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike are two great leads surrounded by a good supporting cast. It stars Ben Affleck as Nick Dunne, Rosamund Pike as Amy Dunne, Tyler Perry as Tanner Bold and Neil Patrick Harris as Dessi Collings, directed by David Fincher and Dawn Swiderski.

  1. Ben Afleck redeemed himself with this movie from the disaster that is Gigli.

  2. This is so telenovela.

  3. The Donald says:

    Thus is a breakout movie for Rosamund Pike she is very good in the movie. Overall the movie mediocre from half way to the end.

  4. conflictedinvegas says:

    Who says that only men ca be creative? Rosamund Pyke’s character is so creative that the watching the movie is like watching noontime soap opera (are those still around?).

  5. Valleygirl says:

    The movie started very strong and a very good plot but ended with a very weak ending. The ending looks like from a soap opera.Good acting job from Rosamond Pike she is so perfect for the role.

  6. Judy says:

    I love how the movie skewered Nancy Grace, I couldn’t stop laughing.

  7. Pierre says:

    Watching Gone Girl is like watching my afternoon telenovela, it is good though.

    Good story and plot from start to Middle however it went down from there specially the ending. Half of the movie is so soap opera or telenovela.

  13. Lisa Walters says:

    The ending is really a disappointment but anyhow I love the movie, story and plot really good.

  14. Barbara Newton says:

    I didn’t like the ending at all but overall a very good movie.

  15. troy m says:

    The plot and story of the first half of the movie is very good but went downhill on the second half to the end and really didn’t like the surprise ending.

  16. Brit says:

    Would have been good if not for the lousy ending. has great story with some twists and the actors did a good jo so far one of the best movie of the year.

  17. Steph Mi says:

    Started with a decent plot but ended pretty much like Desperate Housewife in Wisteria Lane plus the movie has so many holes on the plot, so many it looks like a cheese with so many holes.

  18. J Byrne says:

    A good thriller but half of the movie is so telenovela I agree. Very good acting job for Ben Afleck and Rosamund Pike.

  19. mark M says:

    Undeniably interesting but overall the movie is a a dumb and unsatisfying popcorn thriller for those who knows what a good thriller should be. It has a good story and plot unfortunately the ending was a bit disappointing and there were some holes on the plot.

  20. Brian O says:

    The movie starts off pretty slow but it gets better as it progresses and the drama is instant and goes on until the very end. Clever, stylish, witty and keeps you on the edge of the seat. One of the best this year.

    Great movie.

  21. Kate M says:
