5.0 out of 5 stars A hidden gem, 31 Oct. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gone Baby Gone [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Given no publicity and not shown in cinemas in the UK due to events at the time of release Gone Baby Gone passed by under the carpet.

It is a hidden gem that really shouldn't be missed. If you are a member of the 'yuck, it's Ben Affleck' bandwagon please, don't be put off. If this is anything to go by and he is hanging up the acting, we should have some great stuff in the future - maybe another Good Will Hunting?

Without giving too much away about halfway through there's a major left turn in the way the film is going and it's followed up with a series of them until the end. The only odd thing I found is Michelle Monaghan, I'm not sure that her charactor really needs to be here. Adds a bit of balance I suppose?

For those interested, the HD transfer isn't fantastic to be honest so if you haven't gone exclusively Blu you can happily stick to upscaled DVD.

Really? It hit the movie news at the time that it got shelved from cinema release becuse of the McCann incident. Initially it was delayed but I don't recall it ever surfacing?
