Consensus: Dark, intelligent, and stylish to a fault, Gone Girl plays to director David Fincher's sick strengths while bringing the best out of stars Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike.

This is a nutty film, and for the most part I mean that in a good way.

Christopher Orr

Fincher is as Fincher does. And what Fincher does better than almost anyone is create moody, meticulously crafted thrillers that straddle the divide between genre and art.

After finally watching this ruthlessly constructed, exquisitely vicious depiction of all-out gender warfare, I would say that, yes, Gone Girl is anti-female. It's also anti-male. Hell, it's anti-human. That's where the fun comes in.

Gone Girl promises to be an unnerving portrait of marriage as ruin, but then it opts for madness and implausibility.

Gone Girl is a sick movie, but it's a lumbering, anti-imaginative kind of sick.

[A] chilling thriller which has enough twists and turns to keep you glued to your seat.

In the film's final stages [Fincher] seems to be relying entirely on craft - but, boy, is it effective craft.

Not all the veers and neck-cranking developments pay off, but there's a lot to praise in the moody, fractious friction throughout and the enigmatic desolation in the pools of Pike's limpid blue eyes.
