There are times when a movie is just a movie: entertaining, predictable, shallow but quenching one's thirst for diversion. A film not worthy of massive movie discussion groups; intense analytical dissection, preposterous, pondering, pontification. Just elementary, mindless fare.
"Gone" starring Amanda Seyfried is the perfect antidote for jet lag, escape from the ubiquitous, dunning, recurring chores of every day existence. Ms. Seyfried plays "Jill Parrish" a young woman with psychological problems resulting from an alleged kidnapping; she works the night shift in a seedy diner and returns home to find her sister "Molly" missing. Hence, commences her solo vigilante crusade to find her sister before she is slain by her abductor; Jill is convinced the same perpetrator who took her, has Molly.
A thriller, bland in comparison to many,( "Gone Baby Gone", "Taken") holds your attention because of the intensity of Ms. Seyfried's skill in her convincing portrayal of a woman determined to find her sister before the last grain of sand disappears from the hour glass.
TWO & 1/2 STARS!!
