Movie review - Gone

I've watched Gone today at Sunway Pyramid; huge thanks to Seventeen Magazine that I got booked my spot and firstly I got 4 tickets to watch and unfortunately, no one was free to watch with me and I was furious that it would be a waste if I didn't watch this movie. Finally, got contacted Carina Yeoh to go with! yayy! 
The redemption was at 10am and we reached around 11.20 noon I was like shit i'm late and the counter section was closed and the crews already left :( Soon, got into the hall thanks to TGV staff :))
Plot: (you can ignore if you think it's too long or was planning to watch this movie)

Jill Conway is a young Portland woman who lives with her sister, recovering alcoholic Molly. One year prior, Jill was kidnapped by aserial killer who abandoned her in a hole in the forest, where she found human remains. When her abductor descended into the hole to kill her, Jill was able to stab him with a bone and climb his rope and return to civilization. However, the police didn't find the hole and discovered that Jill had been committed to a psychiatric institution for several years after her parents' death. Believing that the abduction only happened in Jill's head, they closed the case.
One day, after returning home from work at a local diner, where she and her friend Sharon Ames are generously tipped by a regular customer about to move out of town, Jill finds Molly gone and is unable to reach her boyfriend, Billy. Knowing that Molly wouldn't leave the house with Jill absent and that she had an important test the following day, Jill becomes convinced that the man who took her has now captured Molly and heads to the police station to ask for help, but Sargent Powers (Daniel Sunjata) and Detective Erica Lonsdale dismiss her claims and promise to look into the case after a few days, but Jill claims it will be too late then. Before she leaves, newcomer Detective Peter Hood pulls her aside and tells her he believes her, giving Jill his card in case she needs help.
Billy calls Jill and tells her that he hasn't heard from Molly, and that she didn't show up at the exam. Jill interrogates her neighbors and finds out a van with a locksmith's name parked in front of her house in the middle of the night and honked several times. Using the neighbors' description of the van, Jill finds the company it belongs to and heads there, where she questions the van's driver - who is also the company owner's son - about Molly's whereabouts. He claims to not know anything about it, and Jill feigns leaving in order to break into the van, where she finds a receipt for a hardware store and duct tape. She holds the driver at gunpoint and forces him to reveal that he allowed a stranger named "Digger" to rent the van the night before. Jill then leaves.
The locksmith's son reports this to the police, and Lieutenant Ray Bozeman orders Powers and Lonsdale to capture Jill, as she is a liability and has no permission to carry a gun. Hood tries to convince Jill to meet with him so he can help her, but she believes it to be a set-up so Powers and Lonsdale can arrest her and refuses. Meanwhile, Jill goes to the hardware store and learns from the owner that Digger's real name is Jim McCoy and that he's staying at a local rundown apartment nicknamed "The Royal Hotel". Jill heads there and breaks into McCoy's apartment, where she finds more duct tape, pet food (which she was given by her kidnapper), and matches from the diner where she works, the Lucky Star.
Jill visits Sharon and learns that McCoy is the generous tipper from the night before. Sharon gives Jill his phone number and she leaves. On the way out, she's located by the police and chased to an alley, where she manages to escape and return to Sharon's house, where Sharon begrudgingly agrees to let Jill borrow her car. Jill then calls McCoy, who confirms he's her abductor and implies he knows where Molly is. He orders her to go into Forest Park to find out the truth. Jill ignores the pleas of Powers and Lonsdale, who find her through Billy, and ventures into the woods, where she eventually finds the hole.
McCoy emerges from a small alcove he dug nearby and throws Jill inside the hole, intending to kill her with a knife he carved out of the piece of bone Jill used to escape, but she draws her gun and shoots him in the chest.
Jill climbs back up and forces McCoy to reveal that Molly was under their house the whole time, and he only used her to lure Jill into a trap. She then pours the kerosene of a lamp McCoy left for her into the hole and burns McCoy alive before returning to the city, where she reunites with Molly and tells her McCoy is dead. Jill then lies to the police and tells them it was all in her imagination. They leave, and shortly thereafter, Jill sends an anonymous tip of where to find the hole, as well as pictures of McCoy's victims that she had found near the hole. Bozeman calls Powers and tells him to re-open the case.

My review for this movie would be : 6/10
Reasons was because the movie wasn't as much I was expected from the trailer I watched the day before. The trailer was much more anticipated to watch than the movie. At first I was expecting Detective Hood was the kidnapper because of his voice and the way he approached Jill and finally it wasn't him but some guy named Jim and it wasn't that long story and finally she kills him and went home hugged her sister and said he never existed and the movie ended.

After movie we went back to Cheras and ate yummy food and not much kopitiam stores were opened during 3-4pm and so we went to Auntie Lora's kopitiam nearby Leisure Mall.
