Director Heitor Dhalia has a good eye toward keeping the atmosphere tense in this film, with the is-she-or-isn’t-she journey literally coming to a fork in the road. He makes exceptional use of the Portland setting, including the atmosphere of the dark forest preserve and frequent rain. It turns out to be the perfect city for an adventure like this one.

But it is Amanda Seyfried who ultimately makes the film work, her fulfilling performance creates believers, and it’s her strong, unyielding character that follows through on the old Yogi Berra saying, “when you come to a fork in the road, take it.

With that being said, while I enjoyed the movie more than I initially would have believed, it did have its fair share of strengths and weaknesses. To begin with the weaker elements of the film, the first thing is the acting. While Amanda Seyfried was constantly solid in most scenes besides the really painfully bad interrogation scene, the rest of the cast was rather hit or miss. Emily Wickersham was fine was Molly, but that is because the film didn’t require much from her and she only had about 10 minutes of screen time. Just like “Red Riding Hood”, all the males in the film are the ones who give the weakest performances.

Amanda Seyfried has been stepping outside the proverbial box recently with her roles in films. The last time we caught up with the “Mean Girls” and “Mamma Mia!” star, she was fighting the Man with Justin Timberlake in the sci-fi thriller “In Time,” and this week, she has us on the edge of our seats in the suspense thriller “Gone.”

The film revolves around recent kidnapping victim Jill Parrish (Seyfried), who is still trying to get over a series of harrowing, inexplicable events that occurred a year earlier, when she claimed she was kidnapped and buried in a hole in a ground. When Jill comes home from work one evening to find her sister missing, she is convinced that the same kidnapper has returned to torture her once more.

The thing about Seyfried is that she does look a little – OK, a lot — like a crazy waif, capable of making up any old thing and getting you to believe it by blinking those saucer-sized Blythe-doll eyes. She does a lot of that here, and she’s part of what makes Gone reasonably effective: Seyfried can look fragile, feral or a combination of both. Her skin is so translucent that she looks something like a pond creature, delicate and mysterious but also capable of staying underwater for a long, long time without breathing – in other words, she can surely take care of herself.

The recognizable supporting cast is just used as conduits to add some intrigue to Seyfried’s gritty, and at times, too convenient, search. While they fill-in appropriately, they are literally on-screen for mere minutes. And come to think of it, there may have been one too many of them; though the purpose of having some of them was to give the illusion that they could be a suspect and/or just a hallucination that Seyfried was having.

By the way, did I mention that Amanda Seyfried is on her way to becoming a household name? People like to use the method of comparisons when measuring up an actor/actress’ potential. So just to satisfy that crowd, this guy sees a Jodie Foster type career for her.
