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 »

Surprisingly good
14 November 2007 | by sophiewessbergSee all my reviews

Gone sure is a surprise - I didn't expect it to be as good. The soundtrack is almost perfect. All of the actors are good, but Scott Mechlowicz in particular. I first discovered him in Mean Creek (2005), and I must admit that although his character in Gone isn't nearly as moving and interesting, he delivers a solid performance that almost makes me sympathize with Taylor.

The pacing is somewhat off, and unfortunately, the suspenseful beginning is quickly brought to an end towards the end of the movie where the clicheés line up and actually make me cringe. The last twenty minutes, Gone transforms into a typical horror film, which is a shame, since the story does have potential in the beginning.
