Movie Review: Gone Girl (2014)

Posted on the 14 October 2014 by Kandee @kandeecanread

Gone Girl (2014)Directed By: David Fincher  Starring: Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler PerrySummary: When a man's wife goes missing he becomes the prime suspect in the case and the question is: Did he kill his wife? Or not?My Thoughts: This was a great fucking movie. I love a thriller, BUT THIS...THIS WAS JUST...I cannot even describe how great this movie was, but for the purpose of this review, I will. First off, I have never read the book that this movie is based off of, so I wasn't really expecting everything that was going to happen. This movie was like a roller coaster, going from a low, down point, to high, intense action and then to a median that's okay, then HIGH AS A FUCKING KITE WITH ACTION. You're tossed and turned into whatever is being thrown at the characters and believe me, it's good stuff.The great part is that every second isn't just BOOM! Suspense. BOOM! There's some down time to keep you into the movie and I find that utterly satisfying. It was well done and a great thriller, which you don't see all the time. Well, you don't see it at theaters all the time. It was graphically pleasing as well as pleasing story-wise. I loved the way they changed the days. For example, as the days go by text would appear in the corner saying: Three Days Gone or something along those lines. Call me weird, but I liked that. One thing I have to mention is Rosamund Pike. Someone give this woman an Oscar right now because her performance was stunning. Don't get me wrong, Ben Affleck was great, but this was a bit same-ole-same-ole for me. She had me all over the place. At one point I hated her guts and the next I was rooting for me. Another interesting factor was Tyler Perry. He was surprisingly refreshing in this movie. He was funny and believable and I have a bit more respect for him. AS AN ACTOR, NOT A DIRECTOR BECAUSE I DETEST HIS MOVIES. Just a personal opinion, sorry.Well, anyways, Gone Girl....Grab your friends, your family (younger people should probably stay away though) and go check out Gone Girl in theaters.
