Considerably overhyped and overrated this whodunit of sorts is embellished with good performances and is definitely a one time watch for the suspense and tension it successfully generates over it's running time.

The plot is about the sudden disappearance of Amy Dunne ( Rosamund Pike) the wife of Nick Dunne ( Ben Affleck) on their 5th wedding anniverasary. This incident is not just traumatic for Ben but has the whole town going berserk with the media on a full time vigil outside their house while there is an ongoing hunt for "Amazing Amy".

The plot has it's twists and turns better left unsaid at this point but the director David Fincher must be given credit for engaging the audience from the first to the last scene.He is helped by an eerie background score which gives a sinister touch.The film moves at a brisk pace and the suspense is built up well.

Ben Affleck looking disheveled and sleep challenged in most scenes turns in a convincing performance as the harassed, confused and angry husband. An Oscar worthy performance is given by Rosamund as the vindictive and shrewd wife hell bent to straighten out her husband through foul means.( A big change for her from Bond girl to Gone girl)

In this story of infidelity in marriage, the over inquisitive media, prying and manipulative neighbours play a big role. Nothing is private and confidential any more as the investigation proceeds and shocks keep tumbling out at frequent intervals.There is enough sex to label this as an erotic thriller, and those fond of this genre will be happy. Not since Basic Instinct have we had an engaging movie of this genre.
