Gone Girl Review (No Spoilers!)

I love going to the cinema and watching films and I have a few types of films I really like. 1) Bad films - those films you know of that they're going to be bad because of the theme and actors and cheekiness - but I still love them. 2) Romantic movies (I'm a girl, that's my excuse?) 3. Thrillers.

I went to see Gone Girl and I didn't actually watch the trailer - and the film poster looked quite sci-fi-ish to me and the title didn't give away too much so I was surprised that it wasn't like that at all.

This is what IMDB has to say about the film: On the occasion of his fifth wedding anniversary, Nick Dunne reports that his wife, Amy, has gone mising. Under pressure from the police and growing media frenzy, Nick's portrait of a blissful union begins to crumble. Soon his lies, deceits and strange behavious have everyone asking the same dark question: Did Nick Dunne kill his wife?


It sounds like an extremely cheeky film to me - I mean, well, we'll found out if he killed his wife or not - but it's not like that, not at all. The movie's surprising, and if you haven't read the book (yep, there's a book!) you'll definitely be, well, surprised. The film lasts quite long (149 minutes) but I didn't realize it whilst watching it. When the film was over I realized that everybody had the same thought - 'Is it over yet?' - the ending was so different than you had expected the movie to end!


I thought the cast did an extremely good job at portraying the characters: Ben Affleck (Nick Dunne) and Rosamund Pike (Amy Dunne) both seem so innocent (I'm so scared of giving away some parts of the film - I want this to be spoiler-free but I can't say extremely much about the characters without giving away the plot!). Neil Patrick Harris (yes, the How I Met Your Mother-man!) plays a serious role in this film and I was quite sceptic at first but he was amazing as well.

Like I mentioned before - there is a book - written by Gillian Flynn - and I'm currently reading it so I can't say anything about it yet as I haven't finished it but it 'feels' good already (you know that feeling - like you're about to seriously like a book? I don't know - whenever I enjoy reading a book I usually get this feeling).

I know I'm quite late with this review (it came out over a month ago!) but like I said - I wasn't planning on seeing it, really - it was just one of the few films at the cinema that was a) acceptable for my age category and b) a movie that I'd not seen already. I just really enjoyed watching it and I wanted to share it! If you've already seen it: what did you think? - and if you're not planning on going to see it - why not?

  1. I want to watch it sooo badly, I've read the book and it's freaking AMAZING, so judging on David Fincher's films I'm more than sure that he did and awesome work with the story.

    You have such a lovely blog xx

  8. I saw the film. I think it's one of the best films I've ever seen (Interstellar is unbelieveable good to and worth-seeing!)
    I found myself being so surprised that my jaw literally dropped in a few scenes.
