Gone Girl Review: Don't put off seeing this mind-bender any longer

The Hit
Gone Girl, is she really gone? Did the husband really murder her as seen from the trailers? Does she come back? Just what does gone mean? Turns out, it means a lot of things. This movie practically sidelined me, hit me in the blind spot and whiplashed me so hard I was speechless. My only regret is not seeing Gone Girl sooner.

The cast did an amazing job. Ben Affleck was surprisingly well and gave a terrific performance. The same goes to fellow crew mates like, the beautiful, deceiving Rosamund Pike, Tyler Perry, Neil Patrick Harris and Carrie Coon. 

Affleck’s character is named Nick Dunne. He’s married to a trust-fund, Ivy League genius named Amy (Rosamund Pike), but when she goes missing from their Missouri home on the couple’ fifth anniversary, everything starts to unravel. Gone Girl simultaneously follows the complicated path of their relationship and the search for the missing Amy. By the end, you’ll be left wondering to yourself, what just happened?

Like Nick, you’ll go through each twist and turn, following Amy’s ingenious clues concerning her disappearance. I’ll leave you to decide who the real villain is. With each passing minute, the tension raises until you’re literally on the edge of your seat. Gone Girl is one of those movies that follows you home from the theater and keeps you up, questioning the relationships in your own life. If you’ve been putting off seeing it, don’t wait any longer.

The Verdict
Green Light (Go see it)
