Trivia

Director Heitor Dhalia stated to Brazilian newspapers that he had no control over this movie and that all the major decisions were made by the studio. He couldn't even meet actress Amanda Seyfried before shooting to rehearse and prepare her for the role. Dhalia almost took his name out of the project, but in the end decided not to. See more »

Goofs

The address of the locksmith changes several times throughout the film and refers to locations in Portland, Maine - not Oregon: Jill's initial Google search shows it to be 789 NW Riverton, Portland, OR; the officer reporting it to Detective Hood states that Jill pulled a gun at a "locksmith over in Oakdale"; the police report regarding the incident lists the address as 651 Rivertone. Riveton is a street and Oakdale is a neighborhood in Portland, ME. Neither of them exist in Portland, OR. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Jill: Are you going to say hi?
Molly: Maybe tomorrow after my final. Right now I've got to become an expert on marginal productivity theory.
Jill: I'd ask you what that is, but then I'm afraid you'd tell me.

A tense thriller that is enjoyable enough for a rainy day.
25 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think Gone is a film that is pretty much destined for bad reviews, which is a shame because I actually found it quite good, the story is about a girl who was abducted a year ago, but escaped her captor, she goes on living day to day life with the help of mess to deal with the trauma, that is until her captor comes back for her and takes her sister instead, a game of cat and mouse ensues and the viewer is taken on a fast paced cracking thrill ride. Yes there are problems with Gone, for starters the script is slightly underwritten and some story lines are totally forgotten about, particularly some of the story lines surrounding the supporting characters, and it has a bit of a 90's b-grade thriller vibe to it, but for what it's worth it also has a lot of good things about it too. The central performance by Amanda Seyfried is a good one, she is very convincing as the determined heroine of the story, the cinematography is very fitting to the story, the cold and damp setting of Portland is wonderfully captured by the camera, the pace is fast as a bullet, each scene is quick and doesn't drag on and it has some genuinely scary and tense scenes, particularly towards the end.

Some reviews I have read say that Ananda Seyfried deserves better roles, yes she deserves great roles because she is a supremely talented young actress but I really don't see what's so bad about this role, it's a strong female character, I think people may only want to see her in romantic comedies and that's it. Speaking of Ms Seyfried, she gets better and better in every film I see her in, she has a very natural acting style, she never seems forced, everything seems very natural for her, I look forward to seeing where her career goes.

Gone is a real middle ground kind of thriller, it's not a teen slasher and it's not a more mature adult thriller either, it kind of takes what's great about both types and combines them into a highly entertaining movie that will have you guessing tight until the very end. My only criticism is just the abandoned story lines of the supporting characters, I dint know if it's lazy writing or what but for me I felt I was steered in a direction only to be left thinking, but all in all the movie is great, I would definitely watch it again.

Give it a go, I hope you enjoy, Amanda Seyfried is wonderful. :) excellent.
