The movie tries to tell you that she is highly intelligent, and meticulously plans to fake her own murder and frame her husband for it. What a pile of crap! They don't notice the accumulating gadgets? The hospital sends her home in a nurses uniform, underneath which she is still caked in blood. That much blood from a violent attack would be all over the room. When the gadgets are investigated, whose fingerprints will be all over them - if there are any? There is no visit to or investigation of the alleged kidnapping crime scenehouse on the lake. Neither character makes you like them or hate them. The materials on this website are not to be sold, traded or given away. Where does she keep the car until she needs it? Who is signing for them? Several days elapse from the time of the supposed kidnapping until Amy winds up at Desi's lake house.
Phone records I: Amy makes the anonymous phone call tipping the police off to the contents of the shed. Can nobody attest to Desi's being at home during the time he was supposed to be kidnapping Amy? This apparently was an Acme money belt on loan from Wile E. Did nobody at the casino notice them there - including the man who thought she looked familiar? Please do not waste your time or money on this nonsense. By far one of the best acting performances to have come from Ben Affleck, 'Gone Girl' boasts some strong yet disturbing portrayals from Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry and Affleck. Yet wouldn't the cameras show her entering the bathroom without wounds and emerging with wounds? He then kept her a prisoner, starved and raped her.
If this had been written and played as a straight-out dark comedy - and if it had been at least half an hour shorter - perhaps it would have passed as a run of the mill movie. They eventually find her diary In a wood stove at the husbands father's house. A waste of my life. Amy scores a hole in one at miniature golf and jumps up and down for joy - which causes her money belt to fall off. How does Desi know where Amy's father-in-law lives? What is going to be made of Amy's phone call to Desi? What will be made of the video cameras at the lake house not showing anyone there for the first several days? This was even worse than Babel! Then he takes her diary to her husbands fathers house to burn!!!!! But no one saw the wife leave. The story is just unbelievable.
So ladies and gentlemen, start your engines and drive your semis straight through an impressive array of plot stupidity: 1. As it happened it has a really lame ending. But he makes such a p! Amy winds up in the hospital upon her return. That would then imply he was the one that drained so much blood from her back at her home, he cleaned it up and he put her diary in the wood stove?! There's blood all over the kitchen, but none where she would have been dragged out of the house? Soon his lies, deceits and strange behavior have everyone asking the same dark question: Did Nick Dunne kill his wife? How does she get into and out of the shed without her sister-in-law who doesn't like her noticing? Sure it was from a pay phone, but isn't it going to raise any flags? Amy self-inflicts wounds - supposedly in the bathroom out of sight of cameras - to make it seem as though she has been bound and raped. How about title and license? Desi is supposed to have broken into the house, beat her bloody and kidnapped her. On the occasion of his fifth wedding anniversary, Nick Dunne Ben Affleck reports that his beautiful wife, Amy Rosamund Pike , has gone missing. .
Oh and the hospital sends her home covered I mean a copious amount blood. I could go on, but I realized before the movie was halfway over that I had already wasted too much of my life on it. Where does Amy's car wind up? Dark and twisted, David Fincher's stylish new mystery thriller was derived from Gillian Flynn's intriguingly slick tale from her complex and suspenseful novel. I would have stood up and cheered. I could go on and on but just read the other truthful reviews they will point out most of the other glaring mistakes and downright intelligence insulting nonsense. Just seen the film Gone Girl. Two and a half hours of my life wasted.
Do they also fail to notice that there is no evidence of the injuries that would have occurred had she lost copious amounts of blood at the initial kidnapping? The wood stove door is ajar and the diary is only partially burned; it really makes you wonder how that played outthat the husband put the diary in there to burn but just left it singed, all that work, cleaning up the blood at home, but not to burn the book, as if he needed to make a special trip to his dad's house to dispose of a stupid book. Desi was supposed to be holding her prisoner. Being the psycho she is, are we to believe that she is going to let them get away with it? Amy buys a car listed on Craigslist for cash so there's no record of the purchase. They put wristbands on her and one guesses they examine her - but they don't bother to wash the blood off of her. Fincher has garnered fame and recognition as a mainstream director, that is not only able to engulf the audience within the picture, but actually make them part of the scenario. They are just bland and, well, unbelievable.
The shed is where her husband sometimes has liaisons with another woman. He did this by bludgeoning her and she lost a large amount of blood which he cleaned up. Fincher exercises upon his trademarks with the swift and stunning cinematography, the chilling score and tight editing, all of which makes 'Gone Girl' a movie full of great visual storytelling. How does she get to it when she needs it without being seen? No one even looks for any wounds or asks about her wellbeing and she is not treated for any wounds. A nosy neighbor notices the door ajar and calls the husband somehow the neighbor knows exactly where he is. No flipping way, the hospital would clean her looking for wounds especially with this much blood. That said - and a warning that reading further will take you deep into spoiler territory - the following is by no means a comprehensive list of the major holes in the plot.
Why does Nick elect to live in the same county as this woman, let alone in the same house? A couple robs Amy of all her money.

Nick knows that Amy tried to set him up for her murder, thus opening him up to a possible death sentence. He also knows that when her plan blows up, she elects to murder someone who has never wronged her other than being male in order to cover up her actions which, until that point, may have been criminal - but not capital - offenses.

Yet she found the opportunity and strength to kill him, but didn't call the police from his house to come rescue her. He has not a scratch on him. By the end I just wanted someone to firebomb the house and kill the pair of them. I really struggled with the book and found it incredulous so never finished it but the film was getting good reviews so I thought I'd give it a go. Here's the pathetic execution of her plan: 1. His car wasn't seen at her house.
