'Gone Girl' quick review

The movie has been directed by David Fincher and based on the Eponymous bestseller by Gillian Flynn.

Nick Dunne, played by Ben Affleck reports on his fifth wedding anniversary that his wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike) is missing. Soon with piqued interests of the media and police brings forward a crumbling marriage and the suspicion that Dunne may have killed her.

A typical drama thriller, the movie is a take on American economic crisis, media, marriage and deceits and lies. The book created ripples with its dystopian take on urban life and the movie does not fail to recreate the mood of the book. It has been touted as intelligent and dark at the same time making social commentary on modern lives. It is stylish and lucid as the director's previous movies but the final verdict will come only from the audience.

David Fincher is known for his Academy nominated films like 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button' in 2008 and 'The Social Network' in 2010. The Golden Globe winning director, who is most recently known for the movie 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo', has a lot of hopes pinned on him and the expectation from 'Gone Girl' is high as well.

The movie also stars Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry, and Carrie Coon.
