    Charlize is such a versatile actress and she plays this part very convincing. The story starts a little slow but takes you for a very twisted ride. It's nice to see a movie that doesn't try bashing you over the head from the beginning, catering to what seems to be the new generation of moviegoers that want instant and constant action. This movie gives the story time to unfold to a thoughtful and believable ending.

    In the wake of the success of "Gone Girl", this film was sidelined by fans due to lack of proper attention. "Dark Places" based on another work by author Gillian Flynn, offered new ideas in regards to story, plot twist, ephemeral ideas involved in euthanasia, as well as family, blame, heartache, continued existence at the behest of others.

    The movie has its twist. However as the title suggests it is no gone girl. I wish that the cover would not state that. It gives the viewer such high expectations of the film. In no means is this bad the acting and story are good. It is by no means a horrible movie just know it is not the caliber of Gone girl. It is actually a rather twisted movie has you at times say wtf. How can someone do this?

    This movie was somewhat satanic and dreadfully bad. Aside from Charlene there is nothing remotely interesting in this bad movie. Pick something else and save your money.

    Charlize does another bang-up job, but I had to take a star off for the depressing nature of the content. Good for a dark night...

    I thought this movie was really slow moving. The acting was very good but the story moved so drudgingly. The plus side was Charlize Theron.
