Gone Baby Gone 
Gone Baby Gone review
4/4 stars

One of the most powerful and authentic pictures I’ve seen in a while. This critic was fortunate to get the DVD on sale with its special features. Amanda has been missing and her aunt approaches Patrick Kenzie (Casey Affleck) and his partner Angie Gennaro (Michelle Monaghan). Helene McCready (Amy Ryan) is the vain and irresponsible mother of Amanda. Detectives Remy Bressant (Ed Harris) and Nick Poole (John Ashton) and Captain Jack Doyle (Morgan Freeman) become involved with the case. Astonishing quotes from the movie: Patrick - “Life's full of surprises.” Remy – “It’s a war man. Are we winning?” Doyle – “How many children have we seen destroyed?” “You don’t know what the world is made of yet.” “We don't know why people do what they do.” “Angie – “We have a good life right?” “People don’t change.”

So many themes portrayed such as importance of children/life, parenting, truth, surviving hash conditions, relationships, choices, duty, crime, persistence and sacrifice for the greater good. Soundtrack was apt and cinematography impressive. Performances all around were real especially Ed Harris and Amy Smart, in which the latter was praised by Ben Affleck during one of the bonus features. Screenplay and direction were fantastic, and this coming from an actor who most people hate. Storyline was definitely better than Mystic River and Shutter Island, which was written by the same person. Purely entertaining from start to the unlikely conclusion that would make viewers think with mixtures of thrilling, mystery and action sequences. Gone Baby Gone is a hidden crime gem that not everybody may appreciate because of its sensitive topic and yet exists in the real world, which was brilliantly created and exemplified by everybody from the multi-awarded film that was involved.
