Dull movie
9 February 1999 | by (Antwerpen, Belgium) – See all my reviews

After watching the Morrison Murders I was greatly disappointed in this movie. The acting and directing were very dull, flat and boring. I think that the script had to be very poorly written because the whole story dragged itself on and on and...Even the motive of the killer was unconvincing. When the killer was taken away to his cel he looked at the camera with a very astonished face hardly believing what he had seen or heard the past 90 minutes. And so did we!
