preisman’s review published on Letterboxd:
This movie was very well received from critics and movie goers for its acting, direction and score. For me I agree that David Fincher has quite the eye for making a visually stunning film and building tension. But, in this case I feel he missed. He found a way to make a movie about a webpage more exciting and dramatic than a murder mystery. Ben Affleck played his part well as an apathetic husband of a missing wife. Rosamund Pike plays his wife and for most of the movie shows little emotion. And when she does it is very typical and kind of unbelievable. NPH and Tyler Perry (arguably the less talented actors) were the most entertaining characters of the movie. I enjoyed their roles and acting. Trent Reznor and Atticus Fitch score the film and created a thrilling and suspenseful score that works perfectly to set the tone for the movie. Cinematography is awesome and in line with past Fincher movies.
