Long, involved, demanding, excellent. Gets so much right; the realistic violence required, the emotional impact of these crimes, the complex investigation and its toll on all involved. J Gyllenhall's... Read more performance is the weakest aspect. Great.
I found this movie to be really good. Based on the 1970's murders, named Zodiac Killer. However the focus of this movie was on the detectives and reporters who worked on this case. Pretty good, so have... Read more a watch if you're into criminology, don't watch if you're into pretty in pink or fast and furious!
I love crime movies; however, I just watched this movie and have declared it the most boring movie I have ever seen.
I want my 151 minutes back!
I liked it - was pulled through by some strong performances, but it was a wee bit long... still, moments of excellence, and it is an extraordinary story - a true one at that.
The previous reviewer was absolutely right - it's a long one, but what a compelling movie. It's very well written and acted. I was especially impressed with the accuracy of props and wardrobe as... Read more the years rolled over -you'll see what i mean when you watch it. We had no idea it was a true story until just before they started rolling the credits.

Especially the murder scenes are gritty and gruesome but the main characters... Read more never really go anywhere. Maybe that is the point of the movie but it needs stamina for a running time of over 2.5hrs.
I wouldn't write a review but I agree with the majority of the comments below. This is the most boring and drawn out movie to watch. It tool me three days to finish the agony.
I thought the film was very good, gets the emotion caused the the crimes spot on, It also touched on the fact that the original Dirty Harry movie was based on the Zodiac killer of which I was unaware... Read more. I thought all the performances were fantastic. All in all a very good film.
A very long movie, but also a very good one. I didn't find it hard to sit through. Bit disappointed by the ending, but it is a true movie so they (the movie makers) couldn't help that. Overall, I recommend... Read more to anyone who doesn't mind long movies.
