OVERALL: Oh Hells yes. Perfect. Watch this movie. You will find it very satisfying.
POINTS: This movie takes the woman victim trope and turns it on its head. Almost every trope you can think of in a woman victim movie is twisted around. It is refreshing to not know what is going to happen. And the ending is very triumphant. 🙂 Huzzah!
PITFALLS: Nope. Couldn’t find any.
FEMALE CHARACTER(S): Oh yeah!!! They are good and fun! So are the men. The characters seem to work on several levels – which is actually how real people work too. Very satisfying.
CULTURAL PITFALL(S): Well it would have enjoyed more ethnic diversity in the movie.
HIGH POINT(S): Amanda Seyfried. I am a fan. She has lots of talent and sass and fun. I enjoy watching her and hope to see her in more and more roles for the rest of my life. She is a gem and in this movie gets to show a lot of grit. Go Amanda go!
BECHDEL TEST (Website): 3 of 3 with pride! Lots of good conversations happening between the women. Bechdel Gone page.
IMDB: Gone (2012)
OFFICIAL MOVIE WEBSITE: Couldn’t find it.
DVD/BLU-RAY WORTHY: Yes. In fact that is how I saw it. Hubby really likes this movie too and we are going to watch it again. And probably agan.
LION PAW PRINTS: 3 of 5. Quite enjoyable. 🙂
I enjoyed this movie, too!!!!!
