Editorial Reviews

In the Lifetime Original Movie GONE, Amy's (Molly Parker, Deadwood) 9-year-old daughter Emily is kidnapped and she receives a chilling call instructing her to kill a recently admitted patient in her hospital if she ever wants to see her daughter again. Haunted by a past assault that has emotionally scarred her, broken up her marriage, and now threatens the custody and safety of her daughter, Amy decides to disregard the kidnappers demands and find Emily on her own. Fighting past her traumatic memories, she races to rescue her child, along the way uncovering a larger plot that involves top city officials and corrupt cops who will stop at nothing to see that she and her family are destroyed. Will Amy succeed in finding her daughter and bringing the kidnappers to justice, or will the events of her past prove too much to overcome?

A Lifetime original thriller, "Gone" comes from the delightfully demented woman-in-peril genre that populates the cable television landscape. I suppose some might consider it the equivalent of a summer beach read. Heavy on action (mild TV style thrills), and short on sense--it is a logic challenged story that can be fairly entertaining but whose plot can't withstand much scrutiny. On the plus side, the enigmatic and interesting Molly Parker plays the lead character. On the negative side, the screenplay falls into the deadliest of narrative traps. We've all seen this in movies before--right? Someone does something bad (insert lunatic conspiracy theory here), and they want to cover it up so as not to be caught. Of course, this cover-up results in violence and mayhem fifty times worse than the original act. Well, that's "Gone" in a nutshell. That would be fine, but this film wants to be a heartfelt examination of mother love and perseverance when it should aspire to being the cheesy story that it is. Had it embraced its lunacy instead of playing it so straight, this might have made a tidy guilty pleasure.

Parker plays a nurse whose daughter is kidnapped from school. Apparently she is the only student, because Parker is there twice and no other kids are ever seen (no other cars are ever parked in front of the entrance either). There is a patient under police guard at Parker's hospital, and to get her daughter back--she is contracted to murder the man. Learning that the fellow is an investigative reporter about to expose a huge medical conspiracy provides the bare bones for the largely unexplored plot. Violence erupts at the hospital, and soon Parker is on the lam as well as single handedly taking down a network of conspirators, assassins, and corrupt officials.

2.0 out of 5 stars The lone bright spot in the movie is Molly Parker August 17, 2011
Judge Dawn Hunt, DVD Verdict-- The type of by-the-numbers kidnapping plot is not what's wrong with Gone. Instead the problem I have is with the characters; specifically this movie is inhabited by characters who act in ways completely against what they've been set up to do. The choices made are in direct contrast to what they should be. Our heroine is suffering some type of PTSD from a violent attack three years earlier. She's on medication and is in therapy but still has blackouts and flashbacks which render her incapacitated until they pass. Yet once she makes the choice to follow the kidnapper's demands and track down her daughter she also chooses to skip her medication with no ill effects.

I'm all for someone becoming empowered, but in order for this character to get past the earlier violence committed against her she must now be thrust into an even more violent situation? What does that say?!

And the evil mastermind behind this whole plot? He gets a call which tips him off that the plan is not going to come to fruition. Instead of killing Emily, getting out of town, any logical step at all...he apparently turns off his phone. This ensures that all the players end up in the same place for the final confrontation.

There is not a character in Gone who does not act in a contrary way. Yet in a sense it doesn't even matter because you know how this whole thing is going to end up from the moment we learn about the kidnapping. Everything that happens from then on is simply another mile marker on the road to the predictable end.

The lone bright spot in the movie is Molly Parker. She portrays a woman struggling to cope with the aftermath of a brutal attack quite convincingly.
