It was about time I saw this movie. Everybody said it’s really good so I had to give it a try.
Gone Girl tells the story of Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) and his wife Amy (Rosamund Pike) who appear to have the perfect life. However, when she disappears on the day of their fifth wedding anniversary and things from their pasts come to life, he becomes the prime suspect in her disappearance.
I won’t tell you how the story develops or how it ends, but I will tell you this: the line of the story is quite predictable, but the end is unexpected. You have an idea, fifteen minutes in, about who is the “mastermind” behind Amy’s kidnapping. Granted, you don’t know how or why it happened but you know who did it. But, if the line of the story is predictable you don’t expect to end the way it ended, which I believe is (kinda) the element of surprise.
All in all it was a good movie, worth watching for the details that make this story interesting, and for the actors that do a really good job with their characters. I give it a 7/10.
Have you seen it?
