Real life event to film, truly effective
27 February 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

First rate account of that horrible tragedy involving famous fashion designer Gianni Versace. Nero is awesome in the role, giving the famous character, exactly what it needed, as we are witness to the last minutes of life before he was callously executed by model fan, Andrew Cunniman, who turned the gun on himself when surrounded by cops, outside his houseboat. The murder itself where he was shot almost point blank range, in profile, was pretty gruesome, earning this film a R rating. What next, was his fight for life, plus an APB to tracking down Cunniman, a pathetic sort of wannabe model, who Versace turned down, when choosing people for his next shoot. Reason being, this model freaked him out, we learned. We too spend a bit too much time with Andrew, but it was beneficial, where the movie played evenly with both involved parties. We too have the young FBI Agent, (Steven Bauer) who took the case, and it was great to see him in this, solid, but he should keep his collars tidier. The story really followed through like poor Cunniman's background, where his so called friends starting shunning him out, as this obsessed guy, kept telling em' he was gonna get in to one of Versace's shoots. This is a pretty dark picture of a true horrible event, which today still looms about as one of media's shock tragedies, and will for a long time on.
