If you love good movies with lessons, then you’d love Gone. Sam Dede the veteran actor and Gabriel Afolayan deserve a standing ovation for their spectacular roles in the movie Gone.

Outstanding performance, good story line, very interesting comic relief, and more!

The only issue we have with Gone The Movie is the first 10 – 15 minutes into the movie, it was hard to understand what was going on. Anyone that doesn’t have patient would just quickly loose interest.

We also have issues with the kind of expensive wigs Stella Damasus wore, as an average struggling single mother of two. Stella (Ani’s wife) owns a makeshift shop in the front of her rented apartment, struggles to feed her two kids, yet rocks quite expensive hairstyles which is way above her supposed living standard.
