  • Gone should've stayed missing. I'm pretty clued up on my thrillers, so the remaining few I haven't seen are most likely the lesser known ones. Such as this suspenseful masterpiece...said no one ever. A young girl who was previously kidnapped believes the suspect is on the loose again and has captured her sister. With the police ignoring her pleas, she takes the investigation into her own hands. A well shot thriller that plays with the ideas of paranoia and a mental illness. Being kidnapped once I imagine would make you more aware of your surroundings and heighten the senses, and the story starts off well at executing that concept. Then it infuriatingly crumbles into a nonsensical idiotic plot that had me tutting the whole way through. You know what I mean, casually making a "tut" sounds when something stupid happens. There was plenty of that, and even me flailing my arms around in disbelief. We are lead to believe that this girl can do whatever the heck she likes and solve an investigation by herself? Where all the members of public have vital information because the suspect likes to talk about where he is staying and giving out his phone number? What the actual flip is all that about! It's ludicrous, absolutely barbaric. A thriller that relies on, not breadcrumbs, but slices of bread. Not even wholemeal, I'm talking full fatty bread that has enough dough to spoon feed you the plot. Point A to Point B which leads to a dull car chase to Point C and then finish on Point D. Done. You're welcome. Amanda Seyfried looked disinterested, Jennifer Carpenter can't act and Wes Bentley couldn't stop frowning. Smile bro, please. Atleast we got a twist ending right? Ha! Like heck we did. Waste of my time. No thrills, no acting and certainly no masterpiece. Move along people, go watch a Liam Neeson thriller instead.
