Trivia

During the film, after the accident with the kangaroo, they get towed back to the nearest town. Their exact position is on the intersection of Swan Street and Parrot Lane in Longreach, QLD, Australia, right next to the double power poles. In the first shot at Longreach, the building on the left with red on is the Holden dealership. See more »

Goofs

At the start of the film, when Alex is on the bus, you can see filming equipment (a camera) in the reflection of the window. This is seen whilst the camera is looking side-on at Alex (just before he reads the Australian guide book). See more »

I've should have rented Crocodile Dundee!
8 June 2010 | by (Mos Eisley, Tatooine) – See all my reviews

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.
