The 25 Worst Movies of 2012

11. Gone

Directors: Heitor Dhalia
Stars: Amanda Seyfried, Daniel Sunjata, Wes Bentley, Jennifer Carpenter, Sebastian Stan, Joel David Moore

Amanda Seyfried must be loving the fact that she's currently out promoting Les Misérables, a legitimate Oscar contender and potential box office blockbuster. Usually, the naturally appealing and talented actress is wasting away in crap like Gone, a "suspense thriller" without any tension and thrills equivalent to those of jumping off the top of a one-story building.

Worst of all, Gone makes her seem like an awful actress. Or at least that's what the script forces her to do, since she plays a constantly panicked, frantic former kidnap victim who's desperately trying to find her abutted sister. She's all wide eyes, faux-terrified reactions, and please-kidnap-my-agent lostness in a movie that starts off melodramatic, veers into dullness, and ends with a faint whimper.
