    Which stinks worse? The absurdly large pile of red herrings Gone amasses? Or the film's sub-Scooby Doo conclusion?

    Ms. Seyfried belongs to a stable of blank-faced, saucer-eyed beauties whose limited appeal may conquer the small screen but so far has failed to tame the large.

    It's daffy, but it works.

    It's a significant letdown that after all Jill's running, and all the guessing Seyfried makes us do, the climactic confrontation plays like an uninspired afterthought.

  • Roger Moore Houston Chronicle (Top Critic)
    There's nothing in the film - which lacks urgency - or Seyfried's eyes or physical demeanor that suggests panic, fear, desperation. R

    Gifted and sincere as she always is, there's not much Ms. Seyfried can do with this tripe.

  • Dennis Harvey Variety (Top Critic)
    A low-pulse thriller that evaporates from memory with the last credit.

    While Gone has some visual style, the cheap and melodramatic script fails to make it to the party.

    No money should ever change hands in any Gone-related interaction, unless it is because you are buying matches and gasoline to set all the copies of it on fire.

  • John DeFore Hollywood Reporter (Top Critic)
    A thriller so fixated on red herrings that viewers may stop caring if anyone's really in danger.

    It lies there flapping like a dying fish. Skip it.

    A movie that makes "Murder on the Orient Express" feel like"The Silence of the Lambs"by comparison.

    Unbelievably lazy.

  • Steve Newton Georgia Straight
    By the end of Gone you'll be convinced that it's just a low-rent reworking of The Silence of the Lambs, with Seyfried's humongous peepers a sad substitute for Jodie Foster's acting chops.

    With 'friends' like this movie, the feminist cause doesn't need enemies... [E]ven if Jill isn't crazy... she's still crazy, because she does not behave like a sane person.

  • Ed Whitfield The Ooh Tray
    It's all very well giving Amanda the power to vicariously avenge sex attacks, but it doesn't do much for gender relations.

    Don't let the title of this junky movie lead you to compare it to the far superior 'Taken.'

    It's one of those Hollywood movies that goes in one eye and out the other.

    Seyfried shows she's not the kind of actress who would be an easy victim in a Scream movie.

    Another squandering of Amanda Seyfried's talent, this low-mileage thriller won't be remembered for long.

    Everything about 'Gone' has the plasticy, leatherette feel of an imitation thriller.

    Gone and soon forgotten.
