Monster
3 April 2004 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

This story was done again in 2003. It was done much better. TV movies generally restrict the viewers and this is no exception. It's a horribly botched film with explicit content toned down to fit the television standards. Aileen Wuornos deserves better than this. Her story was done justice in "Monster" (2003) with Charlize Theron, who won an Oscar(tm) for her performance. Just kidding. Both films suck. It's better to stuck to the documentary.

Aileen Wuornos was a prostitute with a lesbian lover who murdered her clients. Why? I have no idea; at least not after watching this movie. Jean Smart is bad as Wuornos and the film is incompetent.

This is just bad acting filling in for a mediocre movie, and bad directing trying to make up for absence of quality. Bring on the Monster.
