Becky and I went to see Zodiak on Friday night at the AMC movie theater in Westminster. The Fandango website at Zodiak describes the movie as follows:
“In the late 1960s and 1970s, fear grips the city of San Francisco as a serial killer called Zodiac stalks its residents. Investigators (Mark Ruffalo, Anthony Edwards) and reporters (Jake Gyllenhaal, Robert Downey) become obsessed with learning the killer’s identity and bringing him to justice. Meanwhile, Zodiac claims victim after victim and taunts the authorities with cryptic messages, cyphers and menacing phone calls.”
Zodiak was a marathon three hour film with a variety of characters and situations that just dragged on and on. The acting was good, the story was insane, but interesting, however the directing of the film was terrible. Several parts of the movie were extremely graphic where the Zodiak killer murders several people, which was very disturbing. The fact that it is based on a true story and that there are actually demonic influenced psychopaths walking the streets willing to murder people for fun is even more alarming.
Of course, all you have to do is watch the evening or national news and learn about child molestors and murderers without going to a movie like Zodiak. This movie was definitely a rental and possibly not even worth watching since it took three hours of our time to learn that they never caught this diabolical madman until he had a heart attack in 2002.
I’m giving this one a big don’t bother.
