So this is supposed to be a thriller. Amanda Seyfried is becoming a name to avoid when a film she appears in isn't a musical. She has talent, but she really has to concentrate on getting the right script, because her career will go the same way as her co-star Bentley.

She plays some girl who escaped a kidnapper, and now the Guy is back and has taken her sister.

That's the story. The difference this time is that everyone thinks she is crazy, and she has taken a few fighting lessons, so she hasn't really got anything to lose.

She steals cars, threatens people with guns, and in the most despicable scene promises two girls Justin Bieber tickets.

It could have been okay, but the problem with the film is that it doesn't carry one single surprise. I really thought Bentley was the kidnapper, right until the end, because he has nothing to do in the film.

He literally shows up for five minutes in the second act, and at the end, he does nothing else, he had to be the killer, but no, it's just how far down the pan the guys career has gone.

In the end, here is no revelation, just a crass death and finishes.

A waste of a film, and about twenty years too late.

I agree with A.Murphy, it is hard to find films with suspense throughout so it was a real surprise to find this film to be full of suspense and second guessing. I didn't expect much but the film delivered, with good acting, interesting characters, no cliches and a genuinely good twist.

I recommend this to anyone who likes a suspense thriller about a serial killer without the usual modern day blood and guts.

Amanda Seyfried is waitress Jill who has nightmares of a past abduction. She lives with her sister Molly (Emily Wickersham) who is the smart sane sensible one of the two. When Molly goes missing, Jill goes into a frenzy thinking she too has been abducted by the same guy, even though the MO appears to be different.

Amanda is a bit flighty when she goes to the police with her 1 hour missing sister story. Because there was no evidence from her last abduction...if fact it was contrary to her story, the police show reluctance to help Amanda, telling her to come back Monday if her sister is still missing. She also has a history of "Crying Wolf." Amanda is convinced it is the same guy who abducted her, and her sister is going to be killed tonight if she doesn't find her and the killer. Officer McKay seems willing to help, but his interest in Amanda comes across as less than professional and is suspect to anyone who watches these films. Molly's boyfriend (Sebastian Stan) has his doubts too and appears less than concerned as suspects mount. To add to that list of suspects there is the creepy neighbor as well as the creepy locksmiths.

Armed with information from the creepy neighbor and a .38 Amanda won't sleep until the abductor is found.

The ending was fine, but it needed a final Hitchcock twist. Seyfried looked stellar in a sea of prop actors.

Interesting thriller in which one sisters seeks the other,she believes her previous kidnapper has taken her sister for failure of finding his intended. The question being is do we believe the police that say this sister is deluded and that the past never really happened.
That really is what this film relies on,can she be seen as credible?
This works as a mystery thriller that keeps you guessing as to what is really going on.
Is the sister's sibling really gone by the hands of a previous kidnapper or is the girl looking just mad? You can do far worse than this interesting little thriller.

This review is of the Blu-ray version

Escaped abduction victim lives with her sister, her sister goes missing, escapee is convinced the same man who kidnapped her has taken her sister. Police don't believe her (they were never sure she was kidnapped herself the year before) so she goes on the hunt herself.

Three stars for 'It's okay', but ten stars for the number of red herrings! I lost count of the possible kidnappers, mostly male, at least one female, and at more than one point I wondered if there was a kidnapper at all. In this respect I suppose the director did a fair enough job at creating and maintaining suspense but there isn't much else to enjoy here. The acting and script are average at best, at times wooden and corny. At times it looks a bit like an American TV series rather than a cinema film. Amanda Seyfried has the task of carrying the film, she's in just about every frame, but she is far from convincing, not really capable of handling such a responsibility. If you've seen Mamma Mia, you'll know why. As for GONE, well it's not bad, but surely one of those films that you can only really want to see once, because once you know the outcome there's little to be gained from watching it again (unless you have amnesia).

Pointless as a Blu-ray really, very few hi-tech benefits here and you'd be better off going for the DVD. There are no extras to speak of - the menu options are Play/Scene Selection/Set-Up Options/Previews. Subtitles in English only. The previews are of Underworld Awakening, Lockout, The Grey, and Hugo. And that's it.

So it's just 'okay'. I'm not delighted I rented it, not sorry I did. It's just yet another film that serves little better purpose than passing the time.
