A Deuceology Movie Review: Gone Girl
We watch a lot of movies in our house. One we had been interested in for a while was Gone Girl. It seemed interesting and had gotten a lot of good reviews, so we thought we would give it a try.
The basic story is that a man, Nick, comes home one day to find his wife, Amy, missing. He immediately calls the police who begin their investigation. Nick goes from sympathetic figure to main suspect as the movie unfolds. We find that Nick and Amy were not in a happy marriage. Both have serious issues that cause their marriage begin to fail. We find out that Amy began a plan to leave the marriage which leads to the main point of the story.
Neither Nick nor Amy are good people. They aren’t the kind of people who most of us would really like. They have serious issues that they need to deal with, but are never truly resolved in the movie. In the end, Nick and Amy are back together, but not in the way that would really suspect from the beginning.
Gone Girl reminds me of the kind of movie that Alfred Hitchcock would make if he was around today. Many of the plot twists would make Hitchcock proud. The movie has adult language and adult situations, so definitely don’t watch it with children. I give it a 3 out of 4 Hollers.
Have you seen Gone Girl or do you plan to see it?
