Surprisingly incoherent and boring
It's not great by any means, but it's a pretty good movie that didn't leave me filled with regret for investing time in it.
The storyline feels a little thin and moth-eaten in parts but this sequel is plenty of fun.
A clunky actioner with a handful of cool moments.
This is a 2.5 hour movie and sometimes these days it's difficult for me to stick with the longer movies but this never felt long. You were always curious what was going on. Let's just say it didn't quite go the way I expected but I was intrigued the whole time. The acting was great. This could for sure be considered a slow burn and I'm actually currently watching the TV show Sharp Objects by the same author and this is paced much better than that. There's a couple things I didn't particularly thing got solved or like how they went at the end but overall a great movie.
Ben Affleck is Nick Dunne and Rosamund Pike is Amy Dunne in this story that is a mystery at times, a thriller at others. I love the way that the film's exposition leads the viewer to one conclusion, then another that is contrary to the first, then another. Eventually, the film becomes a commentary on public opinion and the media, even as it explores the complexities of an unusual marriage.The action starts with the disappearance of Amy, but the story evolves quickly. I have read other reviews that decry an abundance of plot holes, but I find most of them to be misunderstandings of the story. Others can be easily explained with some creative thinking. As a whole, the story is cleverly written.This film deserves its high score. The performances are strong, even in their moments of restraint. Rosamund Pike has cited Sharon Stone in "Basic Instinct" as an influence and it is noticeable in her sometimes measured manner. Ben Affleck, at times, reminds one of the prototypical Hitchcockian hero-victim.The Reznor and Ross soundtrack is atmospheric, giving the film a suspenseful, unresolved feeling.
Okay , The movie had an average start even very slow then very quick rhythm giving away what was planned by the wife at once just before the middle then only focusing on that psychopath wife and the rest of the plot when an unplanned accident happened in her plan and then preparing for the ending which was a complete mess with lots of plot holes and unreasonable behaviours especially when both married couple had everything cleared the cards were exposed. The movie had a slow scheme then rising slowly till the end then collapsed with that mess that I felt you were afraid that the days would end before you finish the ending!. I am not trying to have a different opinion about that critically acclaimed movie but really the total scheme flopped from our director who only focused on bringing the wife to the screen with the more than good performance by Rosamund Pike and was a mess in the rest of it even the music didn't add anything to the scenes. Try to understand a complete mess and no entertaining only curiosity what that girl had done before she was gone and what she is doing when that plan had a turn. 6.5/10
Gone Girl is a Lifetime style film on steroids. Amy (Rosamund Pike) and Nick (Ben Affleck) are in a less than perfect marriage. Nick sees Amy as his trophy wife, sex object, and cash cow. Amy is heir of a children's book heir. Nick is between jobs who spends time with his twin sister Margo (Carrie Coon) at The Bar playing board games. When Amy goes missing on their fifth anniversary, Nick is less than forthcoming and with clues mounting, they are all pointing at him as a suspect .Part of the film involves the media frenzy surrounding the case. Tyler Perry enters the film late as a high priced attorney. And Neil Patrick Harris enters the film very late. The film uses flashbacks to show us their lives.This is a nice "straight forward" twisty tale. You watch and try to figure things out with Kim Dickens, wondering where things are going to go. Once we know for certain what happened to Amy, the film loses some of its appeal.The movie had a Lifetime feel to it. Good entertainment, but not something that needs to be seen on the big screen.Parental Guide: F-bomb. Brief sex. Nudity (Rosamund Pike, Emily Ratajkowski)
