Performers, Cast and Crew:
Film Comment - 09/01/2007
"The film is effective throughout, and in its last shot it rigorously encapsulates a moral situation whose resonating implications justify everything that has gone before."
Rolling Stone - 11/01/2007
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Affleck's first time at bat as a filmmaker is more than promising, it's strikingly assured....GONE BABY GONE is full of dark secrets, and how they unravel will keep you glued."
Box Office - 11/01/2007
"Affleck steps behind the camera to direct a murder mystery that grapples intelligently with big questions."
Entertainment Weekly - 10/26/2007
"Affleck the director shows excellent instincts, not least of which is letting his younger brother, Casey, hold the center..." -- Grade: B-
New York Times - 10/19/2007
"Mr. Affleck is already deep into the character right from the start....One of the graces of GONE BABY GONE is its sensitivity to real struggle, to the lived-in spaces and worn-out consciences that can come when despair turns into nihilism."
Los Angeles Times - 10/19/2007
"[A] notable piece of work, a strong directing debut by actor Ben Affleck..."
Total Film - 06/01/2008
4 stars out of 5 -- "[With] superbly detailed, focused performances. GONE BABY GONE absorbs Morgan Freeman's fatherly persona, channels Ed Harris' powder-keg rage and finds Amy Ryan quite sensational..."
Empire - 06/01/2008
4 stars out of 5 -- "It's a major directorial debut from Affleck, successfully combining the elements of a smart, intriguing police procedural with a distinctive Bostonian flavour and the psychological sophistication and moral complexity that distinguish the very best mystery thrillers."
Ultimate DVD - 05/01/2008
5 stars out of 5 -- "[N]ative Bostonian Affleck makes full use of the weather worn streets and people of his home town to give this powerful, intelligent and thought-provoking film an authentically gritty texture."
Sight and Sound - 06/01/2008
"Ben Affleck maintains the downbeat mood effectively, drawing understated performances....Amy Ryan as the missing girl's mother turns in the most powerful performance."
