Gone (2012)

What a long weekend, between softball and hanging out with the daughters it seemed to drag on. Of course, it would help if I felt better, as something has popped up making me feel quite ill. Sure, it sucks when this happens, but then again, it allows me to watch some interesting flicks as I recover. The next flick up is the 2012 thriller, Gone.

Plot/ A woman is convinced her kidnapper has returned when her sister goes missing.

This was an interesting little flick and one that I am glad to have watched. While far from perfect, this was an entertaining thriller that features a tremendous performance from Amanda Seyfried in the lead. In fact, Seyfried is everything to this movie, as the characters that surround her are not developed at all. The scripting is good, the atmosphere solid, the storyline interesting and the most important facet may be that is was believable. Every part of it is believable on some levels. Sure, there may be a bit too many red herrings thrown out there, and it lacked in depth characterizations, but that would be its only flaws. In the end, it could have been better, but what was produced works. If you like middle of the road thrillers, you should enjoy this one. Check it out!
