5.0 out of 5 stars True grit Feb. 22 2008
By Amanda Richards HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This movie pulls no punches in revealing the dark sides of its characters, and the result is a gritty, compelling crime drama, with a surprise around every corner.

Casey Affleck (brother of Ben a.k.a. the Director of the movie, a.k.a. half of Bennifer 2) plays Patrick Kenzie, a low budget private investigator who specializes in finding missing people. His partner is his live-in girlfriend Angie, and the two are hired by the aunt of a missing girl to supplement the efforts of the police force in locating her.

Kenzie soon meets Capt. Doyle (Morgan Freeman) and winds up working with officers Remy and Nick (Ed Harris and John Ashton). During the investigation, Kenzie learns that the girl's mother Helene (convincingly played by Amy Ryan) is no angel, and that she and her boyfriend may have inadvertently started a chain reaction leading to the abduction of her daughter by their greedy and stupid actions.

You'll think that the movie is over at least twice before it actually ends, and it keeps the viewer on edge just knowing that there's even more stuff about to happen. This movie deals with unpleasant topics such as kidnapping, drug abuse, pedophilia, child abuse and more, but Ben Affleck handles these unappealing subjects with such panache and realism that you'll have a bitter taste in your mouth for a long time after watching this movie.

Words of Wisdom (WOW):

1. Don't ever try to steal from your neighborhood drug dealer
2. If your boyfriend's name is Skinny Ray, chances are you're not heading for a stable long term relationship
3. Trust nobody
4. What feels right may not always be right
5. The right thing can be the hardest thing to do
6. Make sure you know where your children are
7. Although it may be wise to skip movies starring Ben Affleck, you shouldn't miss the ones directed by said Ben Affleck

Format:Blu-ray
i initially had no interest in seeing this movie.then,one day,i
happened to catch a trailer for it.the trailer made the movie look
fantastic,so my friend and i watched it on pay per view.i have to
say,i'm disappointed.don't get me wrong,this is still a good movie,but
i don't feel it's the masterpiece it was mad out to be.for one thing,i
found it too formulaic and predictable.there is of course a moral
dilemma for one of our characters.stylistically,it reminded me of both
The Departed and Mystic River,which isn't a bad thing in this case.it's
just an observation.the acting is very good,in this movie,Casey Affleck
holds his own against Morgan Freeman,who is brilliant as usual,though
his role is not that big.for me,Gone Baby Gone is a 3/5

5.0 out of 5 stars Awsome drama. Feb. 3 2012
Format:DVD
Best drama. Ben Afleck is an awsome director. You feel like you're there. The film is full of twists and turns. It's very reflective. You'll always remember this movie. Angie

By Jenny J.J.I. TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Ben Affleck's directorial debut, based on a novel by Dennis Lehane, who also wrote Mystic River was pretty good to me. Affleck's direction is more than adequate. I'm sure he's aping Clint Eastwood's film version of Mystic River much of the time, and there's one scene that's way too reminiscent of Se7en, but he shows a lot of skill. He's great at capturing his hometown of Boston and the people who live there.

The story revolves around the investigation of a missing girl. Morgan Freeman and Ed Harris are two of the major investigators for the police. The aunt of the missing girl hires Casey Affleck and his girlfriend, played by Michelle Monaghan, to do private investigation on the side, because they can maybe find some secrets that the girl's mother (Amy Ryan) might be hiding. It's a gripping mystery story, and it arrives at one quite satisfying twist. But then there's another twist. The second big twist is completely brainless, and then the previously excellent film starts to fall. This isn't unlike Mystic River, where, when we finally found out why Tim Robbins has been acting so strange all the time, I just had to slap my forehead. Gone Baby Gone is able to pull itself up a bit from its head-slapping plot revelation in its final moments, but I was still left feeling cheated. I also have to complain that Monaghan, as lovely as she is, adds very little. Would Affleck's character really put his girlfriend in such dangerous situations all the time? I'm sort of glad we're spared the whole cliché chatter where one of the two lovers fears for their significant other's safety, but bringing the beautiful woman into a powerful drug dealer's den sounds like a hostage situation waiting to happen.

By K. Gordon TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Wonderfully ambiguous, uncompromised, morally complex story of young private eye involved with a local kidnapping case.
Terrific performances from Casey Affleck, Amy Ryan, Ed Harris, Morgan Freeman et al. Also note worthy is the film's great sense
of place. The world of the film feels real, and not like a tinsel-town projection of a working class Boston neighborhood.

Ben Affleck brings surprising subtlety and depth to his directorial debut, and ends up making one of the most intelligent
Hollywood mysteries in recent years.

There are minor flaws; the last 1/3 isn't quite as strong in terms of plot - a few twists are hard to swallow. And the `girlfriend'
role is written a little thin for a film where most characters are so filled out. But the film leaves us shaken and thinking. How many
recent films can you say that about?
