Laetitia Pople Affleck broers blink uit.
Michael Phillips Satisfying but formulaic mystery.
Rob Peters It is not easy viewing and will leave you unsettled long after the credits have rolled...
Annette Bayne When is doing the right thing the wrong thing? Ben Affleck tosses the movie-going audience a whole lot of moral ambiguity to mull over in his new gritty drama Gone Baby Gone.
