David Fincher’s “Gone Girl” is a thriller determined to stay one step ahead of the audience.

“Gone Girl” brings an anniversary scavenger hunt into a new light.

Ben Affleck plays Nick Dunne, husband of Amy Dunne (Rosamund Pike), who is missing on the morning of their anniversary.

That morning the intense manhunt begins for the allegedly beautiful and kind Amy.

Affleck keeps the audience on the edge of their seat throughout the film, by his great portrayal of a confused, worried husband who is suspected of harming his wife.

Pike’s fantastic performance keeps the audience’s emotions towards Amy changing constantly.

Fincher’s box office hit will stick with you well after you leave the theater, and it pushes the extent of revenge in a relationship to its brink.

Gillian Flynn brings her brilliant book to life and crowds the box office with her screenplay.

Flynn’s novel had been a best seller for 17 weeks straight and has sold 8.5 million copies.

Fincher’s adaptation extenuates Flynn’s thrilling and eerie novel by bringing her gripping storyline to the big screen and unfolding the mystery before the audience.

Fincher is known for directing dark, twisted films such as “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and “Seven,” yet “Gone Girl” is definitely one of his darkest and most twisted  to date.

An almost perfect combination of suspense, action, and thrill.

“Gone Girl” keeps the audience guessing who to trust for the full 149 minutes.

This film is definitely one of the best I have seen this summer.

4.5 stars out of 5 stars
