Movie Review: Gone Baby Gone
Gone Baby Gone gets an 8.0 at IMDB on a scale of 0 to Smokey and the Bandit (which is a perfect score of 10.0 in my book, but obviously the IMDB score has a serious computation error), but to me that was a bit low. I'd give it a 9.0. Production quality was excellent, as was the acting, direction, and writing. It was a compelling story that you never could fully anticipate which direction it was going to take. I think it may have gotten lower marks from some due to an ending that wasn't what you really wanted to see happen, but it was well done nonetheless. I'd highly recommend it at least as a rental.
Morgan Freeman fans need not go crazy to see this one, as his role is fairly limited. But the acting quality is still very high, even without a lot of Freeman.
