The movie opens with a line stark and jagged enough to immediately sink it's teeth into you and the plot remains dynamic throughout the film, adding enough twist and turns to dynamic change the pace from beginning to end. At one point, it nearly feels like you're watching a completely different movie and it's a very good thing. Ben Affleck plays husband and suspect number 1, Nick Dunne, husband to missing Amy as played by Rosamund Pike. Ben Affleck plays a stellar Nick, plagued by the media, cops and his own in laws, he maintains a good balance of mystery that compliments this story but the real show steal here is Rosamund Pike. This is by far Pike's most superb role, which becomes nearly unrecognizable from her previous films as she completely gives herself to this character. The supporting cast, comprised of Tyler Perry, Niel Patrick Harris, Carrie Coon, and Kim Dickens, off a surprising mix of dynamic roles that only adds to the over all genius and suspense of this film. They're more than a few good shocking moments and Gone Girl is certainly one wild ride. This big Oscar buzz film is a must see so!
