The acting is surperb, the screenplay is amazing (and written by the same woman who wrote the book) and David Fincher is the perfect director for this movie.
David Fincher's Gone Girl (2014) is a stylized thriller with chilling surprises. Gillian Flynn's story is disturbing and creative with a fresh perspective on the crime thriller. Fincher's direction complements her writing with his sleek, smooth camera shots of clear violence and open sexuality.
Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross' score is more subdued than his work on The Social Network or The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.
Ben Affleck is a snooze of a lead unfortunately. I never liked him as a person, nor I have ever been convinced by his acting. He is just so lazy and mundane looking. His glazed over expression carries over for most of the film. He does capture the essence of a terrible husband, unsympathetic loser, and a strange decision maker. At least, you are not supposed to like his character as he is a jerk, but Affleck pulls off unlikable with ease.
Rosamund Pike is the real star of Gone Girl. Her character constantly gets talked about, but once you start following her perspective, the whole film changes lens and meaning. She is chilling, yet charming. Pike deserved all the acclaim she received for Gone Girl as she is subtle and unnerving throughout Gone Girl!
Carrie Coon is fantastic, likable, and sympathetic as Affleck's sister. She is very genuine and funny, while adding a dramatic depth to Affleck's side as you care about her. She gives the emotional performance he cannot.
I was impressed by the dramatic turn from both comedic actors Tyler Perry and Neil Patrick Harris. They felt completely believable as their respective characters in Gone Girl. I hope they continue down a more serious film path, but who knows.
Also, Kim Dickens is hilarious as the hard boiled detective with a witty arsenal of comebacks and remarks.
Lastly, I suppose I should mention supermodel Emily Ratajkowski's acting is pretty good. She out acts Affleck in her introductory scene, then proceeds to get two more memorable moments. She did alright.
Everyone else is forgettable or passable in their minor roles.
In all, I'm not sure that I like Gone Girl so much as I appreciate. It's a great story told beautifully. The acting is mostly solid with a few standout roles like Rosamund Pike. I think Ben Affleck's lack of charisma or energy is what will always hold Gone Girl back for me. I'd honestly rank this as my least favorite David Fincher film, but it's still a decent film.
Okay. Let’s say the author and filmmaker realize it’s preposterous, but figure they’re offering some mindless entertainment, so lay off, would you? I’m cool with that. As a black comedy (whatever it was they were trying to do) it works pretty well. That’s why I gave it four stars. It’s a great date movie as long as you have an alibi besides your date.

As the plot twists and turns the quality of acting by Rosamund Pike was superb. This film is not her normal style and my goodness she acted the role. (her other films I have seen were 'United Kingdom,' What we did on our holiday' and 'Made in Dagenham) Choose an evening when you won't be disturbed and enjoy (if that is the word I can use) Absolutely brilliant.
In the real world many relationships are genuinely very difficult, and one often sees only one side of them, but the one here is over the top but it is American so maybe that has had some impact on what is acceptable and what is excessive. The plot is not obvious at the start but soon becomes so and the ending seems a weak finale and definitely not an "and they all lived happily ever after " one.
On balance, I think it is, generally speaking, and in this particular case, better to read the book first, if you intend to read it at all. I felt that the early scenes were more comprehensible, especially they seemed to be filmed in near darkness with barely intelligible dialogue, as mentioned in a previous review. I found that the two media complemented each other; the earlier plot development easier to follow in the book and the later unfolding of the plot and the ultimate scenes clearer in the film. In short I advise you to do both, it matters little in which order as the sum of the film and the book is greater than the two parts.
