This was a really good movie - a Movie - like they used to make - I just wish I went on the week end because is was nice to relax to and about 21/2 hour or so long - worth every dollar.

A perfect mystery will all the right moves. "gone girl" is a mysteryt with so many twist and turnbs that you had to sit there waiting toi see what's next the the film never disapopints. The film is based on the novel by Gillian Flynn about the couple plasyed by Ben Affleck and Rosamound Pike who wife one day turn up missing and Affleck wanted to know what happen to her. But the medcia got wind of the story and it accused Affleck of kinning his wofe. Not by a court of law, but by the media. those who want to study journalism in collage should see the movie.From that point, I wiull stop of tellong more details of the movie for those who have never read the book. But those who do, won't have any problems with the movie. I lov e the performances of Ben Affleck and rosamound Pike. They bothg gave great performances., But I also like to give a shout-out to someone who needs a shout-out., It goes to Kim Dickins who play a detective. I love to say this; I fell in love with her character. Makes watching this movie a lot sweeter.

Great movie and story line. This story has you sitting on the edge of your seat all through movie. 2 1/2 hours never went so fast. Your interest is held right to the end and beyond. Really a must see!

This movie wasn't up to the hype given it! They jumped around too much and it was just too weird for me.

Watching "Gone Girl" reminded me of why David Fincher should be regarded as one of the great storytellers in the movie industry. No, he didn't write the screenplay, nor did he write the novel upon which the screenplay is based, but he puts the story on screen in a very compelling and intriguing manner.

The movie starts out as a police procedural story, with sadsack Ben Affleck coming home to find his wife gone and some signs of a struggle that compel him to call the police. He eventually becomes the prime suspect in her disappearance even as he is involved in the search operation, albeit in an incomfortable and/or shifty manner. You get the impression that he isn't all that worked up about her being gone, which doesn't help his situation any with the police and with public perception.

About half way through, the movie changes perspectives. I won't get into it here, as any kind of description would ruin a twist that is better left unspoiled, even if its revelation doesn't have a major effect on the impact of the story. Much of the goodness happens in the second half, though.

What takes this movie from being a simple "did he do it" mystery to something better is how the story examines that grey area between guilt and innocence that lies not in any kind of proof but in the public perception, largely fueled by a media industry that is only too happy to stoke the fire of controversy for their own gains. Don Henley's "Dirty Laundry" had nothing on these people...

Rosamund Pike earned an Oscar nomination for her role as the wife. Ben Affleck does a good job in his thankless role, as does Tyler Perry as the celebrity lawyer that's trying to protect him from the hyenas in the press as well as mount a defense for the inevitable trial to come. All this is backed by an unsettling score by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross that doesn't draw too much attention to itself, but keeps you from feeling like you know what's going on and what's about to happen.

I definitely recommend seeing this movie if you are into murder mysteries and enjoy a well-told story combined with solid performances.
