Gives me hope that Fincher still has a great movie in him. Performances were top dollar, and the investigation part of the film worked well. But Flynn wants it (at least) three ways (ahem): there's the classical mystery premise (my favorite), the (semi-amusing) satire on media frenzy and marital hell - and then, ehm, there's the spoiler. After a Hitchcockian shift we're suddenly in a certain subgenre on acid which - juxtaposed with the film's other elements - feels unbelievable and a bit cheap.

It elevates what could've been a chick lit adaptation into a beautiful perversion. David Fincher is a gifted craftsman and uses editing and a Trent Reznor ambient score to lull you into a false sense of security. It also wonderfully satirizes how the news media creates soap operas out of crime stories. But it's a fun film--especially the Rosamund Pike performance. I loved it so much I didn't mind that I was the only person in my movie theatre cackling like a madman at the darkly twisted jokes.

As to be expected, Fincher absolutely nails the 'crime procedural' aspect of the story, delivering an entertaining, thrilling experience, but somewhat misses on all the amazing underlying potential for dark comedy. The trashy pulpy plot proceedings also feel covered in an expensive wrapping, an unnecessary aura of prestige.

its like the worst Lifetime TV movie ever made in some bizzaro backwards world, written by a 'mens rights activist'. it would be one thing if it was just an intensely silly thriller, which it is, but it is also one of the most deeply misogynistic films I've seen this century, so this movie can go to hell.

Nearly made me sick to the stomach several times over. At every twist I kept thinking to myself, no fuckin' way, people aren't that evil. Kudos to Pike for almost making me never want to look at an attractive woman again. Sure, it's powerful, it's unpredictable, and it's well filmed and written, but I can't say that I actually enjoyed myself watching this movie--more like I felt the urge to compulsively wash myself until my skin bleeds.

"Amazing" performances from all eclectic acting talents involved, bringing to life a truly interesting set of characters. It twists incredibly, gets really dark, throws in some almost literal gallows humor, and thrills you along the way. Another directorial accomplishment by Fincher, who proves he is still a master of disturbing cinema. The only complaint is that by the end, the growing outlandishness of the concept threatens to swallow the film's achievements. Affleck has an impressive Big Ben.

Like with The Game, Fincher tries to sell a ridiculous story by remaining very up-close to the characters so that the whole picture isn't clear until the end. And I must say, for me it definitely worked better this time around. The storytelling still feels rather clumsy at times (more often because of the story rather than because of the way it's told), but occasional individual scenes can really make an impact. Even if the story won't stick with you (for me it didn't), the atmosphere will.

This movie doesn't go off the rails. This movie goes off the rails, crashes through three neighboring towns, knocks over forty telephone poles and plunges into the Atlantic Ocean. What starts as a great, interesting look at (presumed) innocence in a media frenzy turns into a remake of Fatal Attraction that refuses to end. It's the movie equivalent of a chocolate cake that you bite into to taste dog turds. Score only so generous because of the technical talent at work, particularly the editing.

Obviously everything is taken to the absolute extreme, but this movie relates to you if you're in a relationship of any kind. If you think you and your other are above the manipulations that are taking place here (again, brought to insane extremes), then you are either oblivious to your own intentions or you are in the process of being manipulated. Don't worry though. Not much has changed if you're already a registered voter.

If you like spoilers then you probably like ninjas. One of those will be in this review. The other will get you killed. Still on? Good. 'Gone Girl' spends too much time masquerading as a thriller, before showing its true colors as anti-feminist satire. A pity. Women detectives, women anchors, women concerns. It won't score you points with the white female elite, nor should it distract you from actual gender issues, but if you quietly chuckle into a pillow - you'll find me there. NINJA VANISH

An absolutely silly movie made masterful by David Fincher and the amazing cast. Rosamund Pike should get an Oscar for this. Downright Lynchian comedic value in the midst of a dark story brings this from the possibility of being a joke, to a sharp, smart (if you don't pick it apart too much) mystery movie. Reznor's understated (homage?) score frames the beautiful nonsense wonderfully.

As Reznor's Badalamenti inspired music hints, this is pretty much Fincher doing Twin Peaks; an apparent thriller, that gradually turns (really) darkly comedic, Gone Girl is at face value pulpy, but lifted tremendously by the talent involved.

Good on every level. I'm glad I hadn't been spoiled on the story. It went a lot of places I didn't expect, and I enjoyed the ride. Fincher's direction really respects this, too - it's not flashy or over-stylised. Every performance is good, with Pike being particularly impressive. Reznor and Ross have delivered another perfect music score. It's well-made, it's engaging, it's even darkly funny at times - it's brilliant. Definitely a contender for film of the year.

Very good movie. Whoever cast Rosamund Pike as the Gone Girl made a pretty awesome decision if I do say so myself. She pulled off the role so well and probably deserved an academy for it. David Fincher's directing is solid as usual and he mixes the music, characters, and screenplay with it all so well. Never really got uninteresting or felt too long in my opinion. Every scene matters.

One of the few marriage films to actually show what it's like to spend years with the same person. Trying to understand the other person while also trying to bend them into something more enjoyable for yourself. Also a stunning examination of the American brand of narcissism that is everywhere. The twists hold less of a punch this time around, but the twist isn't what makes this great so it really isn't much of a detriment to the film.

Mediocre for a Fincher, good by every other standard. Since I'm forced to directly compare it to 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' it wasn't as good either in direction or script. Still worth a watch, and some very good acting performances from everyone around deadfaced Affleck kept it rolling.

Classic Fincher. 80% awesome and 15 minutes too long -- unless we're talking about "Zodiac", in which case, bump that up to 45 minutes. But yeah, yeah it had to be, that was the point. I know, I know. First hour is, I'll say it...riveting. I was riveted...to my seat. Overall impact slightly blunted by an acquaintance of my wife casually detailing the climactic jolt of violence mere days before my viewing. Me saying, "Uhhh, I haven't seen it yet." And him shrugging. DICK.

Dark and meticulous, in true Fincher fashion, "Gone Girl" packs some savage commentary on gender stereotypes and media power to go along with its engrossing potboiler plot. Fincher is more clinical (and less flashy) than ever, the flashbacks felt rushed, Flynn's witty dialogues sound rather forced when actually uttered and Affleck has hardly gained any charisma. But it's entertaining, smartly calculated stuff even if it's far from vital.

Fincher is back to form with this surreal look at society's obsession with true crime and missing white woman syndrome. Trent Reznor's score is particularly amazing. It adds a Lynch like aura of dread to the entire film. The dark and yet almost comical tone of this was very hard to nail down and the score really brings everything together. Rosamund Pike is also truly frightening as the sociopathic mirror image of the modern western woman and is a great contrast to Affleck's naive average Joe.

Gone Girl is a rather surprising story about control, public perception and empty gestures. Atmospheric and polished, it managed to draw me in effortlessly and every huge reveal got me more invested. While it gets more ridiculous towards the end I did not mind one bit, and once the credits rolled I was cackling with twisted glee at the messedupness of it all. A case can be made for misogynistic content, I just choose to see it as a bunch of horrible people (ab)using each other in twisted ways.

It's not out of scorn but out of love that I say I totally agree with people's interpretations of this as overheated melodrama and/or "the best Lifetime TV movie ever made." This flick is just some pure sleazy twisty goodness. So entertaining and so well-paced and so awesomely R-rated, however dumb some parts may be when put under a magnifying glass. Rosamund Pike may quite possibly find a gold statue in hand in four months.

I'm told that in the book the protagonist is far less amiable and sympathetic, creating a symmetry of awfulness not really present in the movie, despite vague gestures that don't amount to much, and those I know who've read it seem to regard the choices involved in changing that character and thus narrative - and the presumed motivations for those choices - as lacking something like integrity - the novelist having scripted the film, of course. I now know who Roosh V is, though, because lisa.

When I was a kid these type of femme fatale thrillers were two a penny. And they managed to wrap up their (more focused) stories in way under 150 minutes too. I'd heard a lot of good things about Gone Girl so wasn't prepared for how frighteningly average it is, screaming mediocre at you from every orifice and failing to convince with a string of predictable/tedious twists and turns. Distracting enough while it lasts, but when the credits roll you're left wondering what you wasted your time on.

I get the complaints about misogyny, but the film isn't particularly kind to male characters either. Sometimes we just have really terrible people and sociopaths exist in every gender. The direction & acting is top-notch. Great score from Reznor & Ross. The tension is ever-present. Could have easily cut 10-15 minutes to make a tighter narrative though (mostly from the final act).

Good writing, casting and satisfying performances. Rosamund Pike plays a deliciously evil genius adding another spin to the story of a woman scorned. It challenges the viewer with pivotal reveals and dark twists and turns. It is outrageous at the end, but remains entertaining and engaging if not entirely believable. Excellent production quality. Carried by good performances and an interesting and engaging story. Worth watching and a bit haunting.

The majority seem to really like this film, but I'm having trouble finding anything that would elevate it above the countless other female-psycho movies. The beginning is fantastic, but after the twist the film seems to come to a halt. The last hour and a half is spend going in circles, and the ending is less than satisfying. It's entertaining enough, but I was expecting more.

Another example of Fincher trying to elevate schlock with his cold and meticulous style, and a very good argument for never lying in a relationship, ever. This one comes up a bit shorter than Dragon Tattoo though, due to worse pacing and an ending that's mostly just a fizzle. Pike gives a great performance , and makes me want to see her in more risky roles like this.

Gone Girl reminds us that there is nobody better at turning dark, disturbing, but also kind of silly material into a serious and great thriller than David Fincher. Its ideas come from its writer, Gillian Flynn, and a lot of the credit deserves to go to the actors, too, but Fincher has created yet another really solid entry into his filmography with Gone Girl. You'll be entertained for its two and a half hours, and come away thinking about it for hours, or maybe even days, afterward.

It's relatively long running-time is packed with intriguing and mind-fucking story development and characterisation, letting you in on key details, but only at properly selected times. I dug the filmic aesthetic too, it's sterile, clinical, digital appearance not only matches that of the forensic investigation, but also ties in with the emotional falsity of the characters. Affleck gives a well done nuanced performance, Rosamund is intense, and even Tyler Perry is great.

A perfect balance of Fincher's traditional motifs: compelling procedural elements, psychological intrigue, murky morality, plus a cast of characters that are all different shades of slimy, creepy, hellish people, each one a victim and each one guilty of their own crimes. That said, there are definite, inexcusable misogynistic undertones (minor spoiler: the film basically attempts to invent a situation where domestic violence is justified; note: it isn't), but that's up to the viewer to navigate.

Fincher most entertaining -- hey, not best -- since Panic Room. And there are many reasons for that. It's the third time that Cronenweth bleak colors make such a perfect couple with Reznor/Ross oppressive electronic chords. And, well, Fincher and Flynn find a way to turn this not into an adult drama -- a rare type of film these days --, but a gaspingly funny and ironic comment on America's most darling and troubled institution -- marriage. Should Fincher direct a family drama now? Yep.

It's preposterous how quickly Affleck's Nick & his sister accept the idea that his wife has engaged in what can only be sociopathic actions, & how Nick chooses 2 stick around for 1 second longer than he needs 2 once he's certain she's insane.

The last harrowing 30 minutes of "cornered into an impossible situation" and the performance of Pike in that part was a 90; the rest was okay but not great.

Also, Amy Dunne is so extremely unlikable that, you just want her to drop dead (though I appreciate invoking such strong emotion through character development). The end of this world will come in the hands of a New York socialite....

Gone Girl is a book I initially regretted not reading prior to watching this film, but in hindsight I'm glad I hadn't read it. This film compelled me entirely. I was also initially unsure of the casting, but Affleck & Pike prove to be the shrewdest of choices and both give the performances of their careers. David Fincher's direction is flawless and Gillian Flynn's screenplay is astounding. This film truly gets under your skin with it's mounting dread and the conclusion is a genuine nightmare.

Like any good mystery, Gone Girl is compelling, engaging and grabs your full attention. I thought both parts were strong (Afflek's POV in the first half and Pike's reveal in the 2nd half). I was still engaged and craving more when the film ended. Affleck's character mentions that he feels like he's in a Law & Order episode at one point, yet we only get to see the Order part here....the Law part would have been just as interesting had they pursued it (the unraveling of her story)

Gone Girl is overall a good film, (again) meticulously crafted by perfectionist director David Fincher. I believe he did what he could with the source material, just as with his previous film TGWTDT. The only gripe I have with the style of these two films is that they feel quite clinical. This approach worked with Zodiac, almost like a documentary at times. I miss the atmosphere of Se7en here. I reckon it would have given GG an extra dimension and a better rewatch value. Pike is delicious...

If it weren't for Rosamund Pike embracing this role so tightly that she practically suffocates it, I don't think this film would be nearly as effective.

There is no bigger critic of Fincher than me, finding the majority of his pictures to be subpar at best. However, everything he has done since 2010 has been wonderful. I loved the tone of the film accentuated further by Reznor's fantastic score. Gone Girl is a fantastic and entertaining mystery with perfect pacing. Rosamund Pike is an absolute show stopper; what an incredibly disturbed and unstable character. What I love about Gone Girl is both characters are pieces of shit. Who do you root for?

Its revelations on long-term relationships and marriage are subversively plotted, but ultimately a little dull. Its mockery of a media circus is more direct, and also where it is most interesting.

I thought that the movie was over at half time, partly because it felt like enough time had passed. Is that a good sign or a bad one? I don't know! I know that the plot got me tricked and hooked during most parts. And in the end I'd still rather go for Pike than for Affleck. Ok, I'd prefer anyone over Affleck. #notmyBatman

Leisurely paced, labyrinthine thriller feels *too* slowly paced at times - slow enough that it allows ample time to ponder some of the contrivances and improbabilities in the plotting. However, for sheer craftsmanship, Fincher has produced an at times stunning achievement, directing an unusual (but ultimately well-chosen) cast to the performances of their careers, and using every trick at his disposal to keep his audience off-balance (note the brilliant use of sound during Harris' big scene).

Great fucking movie, but a weak ending really hurt it. Everyone gave a great performance, especially the greatest actor of our generation. Definitely great characters to hate like the Nancy Grace clone and annoying neighbor.

What a downer this film is. Celebrates nothing other than complexity. No great photography. No great cinematography. No laughs. No comic relief. It felt like a long episode of 'Desperate Housewives' minus the humour, and satire.

Call me a prude, but if your film is portraying oral sex within the first five fucking minutes, quite graphically at that, I fucking hate you, your cheap porno film, and your inability to develop characters. Not sure why I decided to give this a go, it has like the absolute worst cast of shitty actors I've EVER seen, and wow, did they ever deliver! The script is fucking garbage. Honestly, I don't understand why so many people have tolerated this film. It is so glaringly awful.

It was a big potential film that could have a lot of big discourse about relationships if it could get rid of the chains of Hollywood.

Through Amy it's Fincher that shows up. In order to guarrantee that we are thrilled he will simply do anything like a calculated, calm psychopath. It all fell apart for me as characters became a caricature of themselves throughout. So much room for ambiguity wasted for cheap thrills.

For a while I was trying to find a provocative subtext this film, a comment on American justice, media, something, and while there are bits and piece of that here and there, this is really just a highly polished Lifetime movie without a neatly wrapped conclusion. Nonetheless, I loved it from beginning to end.

I'm not quite sure what to think of this misandrist melodrama. The first act's misdirection is a little too obvious but serves its purpose. At this point Fincher turns the media and gender stereotypes completely on their head. Everything your abuse shelter pamphlet has taught you has come undone and the suspense is thick enough to cut with a knife. Then it sort of just fizzles into the third act and leaves you watching the male version of a cheesy Lifetime flick. Could have ended better.

I expected something smart but it still managed to surprise me. The ending feels poorly paced, although it's expertly plotted.
