Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Gone Girl - Das perfekte Opfer

"I feel like I'm in a Law & Order episode," says Affleck's character. Unfortunately, Gone Girl is truly as trashily written as bad television until it gets bored with itself and wants to mix things up with twists. Starting non-engagingly and lacking Fincher's usual finesse for an oddly modest approach when it needed an auteurist touch, while the (knowingly?) superficial dialogue is as bloated as its runtime.
