Midnight Edition! Stars Will Patton!
3 May 2004 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Midnight Edition is a true story based on the brutal killings of a family in Georgia that star Will Patton! This film is really unlike any other especially in the true story department. It is very different. The killer played by Michael DeLuise performed very well and this character has a big part in the film too as you would think. In My opinion Patton is a very good and underrated actor and by having stellar acting here in this film he can be in any type of film and play any kind of role. I believe he is that good of an actor! This film, Midnight Edition is really a different film like I said above which really keeps you interested. You see how the killer works, how the relationship between Patton and the killer is and how it nearly destroys his life. The music fit the movie good. If you like Will Patton and want to see him play a good role in a true story then watch Midnight Edition!
