“Gone” Movie Review

(constant sense of foreboding)

Foreboding: Fearful apprehension; a feeling that something bad will happen”

From the first seconds, “Gone” (thanks to the soundtrack, setting, acting, and cinematography) instilled an overwhelming sense of foreboding.  Very cool…..errrr, very scary.

Amanda Seyfried (as Jill) claims she was kidnapped last year and escaped.  The local (Portland, OR) police investigated, found nothing, and finally declared Jill to be crazy.

Jill’s sister (Emily Wickersham, as Molly) goes missing, and Jill freaks out.  Jill knows the same kidnapper who failed to kill her has returned.  Turning to the police, she finds out that they ignore her because of her supposed mental illness.

Fearing her sister will be killed she takes it upon herself to find Molly.

“Gone” follows Seyfried as she follows the leads to find her sister and the kidnapper.  But is she crazy??  Is everything she fears in her mind??

There is one f-word and lots of tension.  Not for small kids as they will not care and will probably get restless.  Most of the audience were older teens, one of whom shouted out at the end “That was stupid”.  I don’t agree…it was scary, tense, and Amanda Seyfriend was excellent (and those wonderful eyes…wow).

Go to IMDb for more information.  We watched this at the Tracy, CA CineMark where our poster is STILL up!  🙂

Drive Safe!  Never Forget.
