As with quite a few true life films, the title gives a lot away. Nonetheless I found this film quite watchable as Dwight Schultz is quite an underrated actor. What placed this killer slightly above average (if such a thing can be said) was his ability to lie and lie and lie and lie. Please do not watch this movie looking for the meaning of life to be revealed and do not expect car chases and gun fights. Just watch this movie that shows how unrequited love can meet its most tragic end and the satisfaction of at least seeing the killer being brought to justice. All in all a watchable film although it will probably have a remembrance factor of about 1 day. This is not a film that many will be searching the DVD stores for but you might watch it again if you spotted it in the TV listings.
