The last motel that the 3 stayed at in the movie is located on Werna Street, Winton, Australia. The building has changed very slightly in appearance (as in 2008), the staircase that we see Sophie walk up and down is not there and a small new building is now situated where Taylor parked the van on arrival.

When Sophie tries to escape in the van, she is having problems starting the van. She is using her right hand to switch the key ignition on. When she stalls again afterwards and Taylor tells her to start it in neutral, her hands are clearly on the steering wheel when the van starts. See more »

This is one of those movies that I couldn't help myself scream at the TV "You stupid morons just keep going your own way!" It was so obvious what is going on that you just hope the main characters pay for their stupidity and ignorance.
The story begins when a young British traveler, by the name Alex, arrives in Sydney and he is schedule to meet with his girlfriend. But before that, he meets another young American traveler by the name of Taylor. Taylor convinces Alex to have a few drinks that first night and meet some girls before Alex gets to his destiny. The next day, Taylor meets Alex girlfriend, Sophie, and immediately becomes obsess with her. Then Taylor devises ways to separate them and gain Sophie's favor to the point of becoming homicidal.
This movie is predictable from the opening credits. The writers didn't develop a plot where they could engage the audience, instead, they wrote a poor, predictable story. Although you might think that the American backpacker is not to be trusted, you know he is the villain the first minute he is introduced in the movie. There are no surprises and movie just drags on to the inevitable conclusion, which in my mind, is pretty lame. Although at a certain point Alex realizes what is going on, he just doesn't do anything to prevent it, and that is what really bothered me about this movie.
Gone tries miserably to be like Psycho and the Hitcher, but instead is an epic fail.
