The moral issue at the ending is what made the movie for me. Strong ending, makes you think.
Given the acclaim and favourable comparisons with movies like Mystic River, I was quite disappointed with Gone Baby Gone.
The writing struck me as more of a made-for-TV movie, sort of like an extended episode of Law & Order, albeit one with an ensemble cast.
I'm not familiar with the source material, but the plot was little far-fetched for my taste, and it seemed like a bunch of plot twists were just stacked on one another as things unfold. I think the overuse of flashback/hints as a plot device sort of speaks to the convoluted nature of the story.
There's some decent performances in there, and the direction is solid, but I was expecting more.
Excellent thought provoking film - makes you wonder about the quintessential question:
Good vs. Bad and Right vs. Wrong. It isn't always clear if a Good thing to do is also the Right thing to do.
