Mystery, Thriller
If you take director David Fincher’s name off the credits, it’s possible “Gone Girl” would not be as hyped as it is. With a mystery that keeps changing, a game-managing performance by Ben Affleck, and a script (adapted by the book’s author, Gillian Flynn) that doesn’t exactly jump out and grab you, “Gone Girl” is merely reputation viewing. It’s already being hailed as one of the year’s best films, but based on what? The central performance by Rosamund Pike is pure Hitchcock blonde, ice cold and shallow. There are also annoying bits of comedy strewn throughout the film that take the pulse out of the thriller, and Neil Patrick Harris and Tyler Perry have cameos that don’t buoy the film whatsoever. Affleck is solid enough, and the swerve the film takes effectively hits the reset button about halfway in, but is this a great movie? Nope.

Salt Lake City Weekly Gone Girl Certain parts of movies—like, say, the opening credits—are so commonplace that we almost stop paying attention to them. But there's something jagged and unsettling about the way director David Fincher delivers the opening credits in his adaptation of Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl—and it's just another typically brilliant piece of tone-setting from a master of opening credits. by Scott Renshaw 10/01/2014

Connect Savannah Review: Gone Girl The movie's male actors -- Affleck, Fugit, Tyler Perry as a defense attorney, Neil Patrick Harris as a potential stalker -- are uniformly fine, yet this is clearly ladies' night out, with the actresses all doing outstanding work. by Matt Brunson 09/30/2014
