ZODIAC (Theatrical Release USA 2007)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Starsìììì

another serial killer film—bases itself on an unsolved California police case. While not as intense as other serial killer films, such as Silence of the Lambs, there is still enough story depth to make it a good watch. The film is based on events occurring in the late 60s to late 70s and uses the superb talents of Jake Gyllenhaal, Robert Downey, Jr., and Mark Ruffalo to flesh out the story. For the crime drama fan there is no lack here.
