Anyone see "Zodiac" yet?

Unread postby swerb » Mon Jul 30, 2007 7:59 am

Just got it from Netflix, and I'm fired up to watch it ... especially after re=reading Mitch's review (linked below).

You could tell Mitch wanted to give it 3.5 or 4 footballs, but the length of the film knocked it down just a notch. I've always heard stories about the Zodiac killer, and am anxious to see the whole thing played out on the silver screen.

Anyone else see this yet?

I was disappointed in this movie. Mitch was right in his review, it drags. Film is too long. He was high on it otherwise. I wasn't as much.

I think part of my problem was that I had no knowledge of the Zodiac story going in. I was expecting closure at the end of the film, and not getting any was the source of some of my frustration.

Thing is...in real life, there was no resolution.

But in the movie, you did get that, in the form of enough circumstantial evidence to know that they did find the killer...they just didn't get him arrested and through trial prior to his death.

Welcome to the American Justice System. Michael Vick thanks you all.
