Jeremy of The Daily Rotation wrote, "There are bad movies and then there are horrible movies. And then way below both of those levels there’s Gone (2012). Amanda Seyfried stars in what is easily the worst film of 2012. I’m not sure if it’s possible for another film to come by and snatch that title because Gone is so unbelievably boring and pointless. The story is mostly garbage that can be poked through in a matter of minutes and the acting ranges from laughable to atrocious. There’s a reason why Summit Entertainment is getting bought out by Lionsgate and that’s because they somehow let films like Gone slip through the cracks and make it all the way through production into an actual wide theatrical release."
