Gone Baby Gone was only engaging around the second act, when the location of a second child is found. Before and after the middle, it was just strung together. Why does he have a girlfriend who serves no purpose? So he has a personal cost to doing the right thing. Why is the second child dead when they find him? So he can do a bad thing and Ed Harris nonchalantly confesses of his bad thing. The film felt like it was written by a hamster who gets the ending first, then writes backward.
