Filmed and released before John Muhammad and John Lee Malvo's trials had began. Nevertheless, both men were subsequently found guilty in real life. Malvo is serving one of six consecutive life sentences in prison since November 8 2006, and Muhammad was executed by lethal injection on November 10th, 2009. See more »
At the end scene where the two are arrested at a rest area in Hagerstown, Maryland there is an interstate sign for I-70 South. Interstate 70 does not run south rather runs east west from Utah to Baltimore. See more »

Now, some may say this movie is controversial due to its subject matter, and the fact that it's been only a year since the horrific blood-lusting rampage that John Lee Malvo and John Muhammad had gone on to terrorize America.
Let's break down the analysis in to a few parts.
Acting - There was some pretty good acting, Charles Dutton did a great job at portraying Detective Moose.
The actors that played Malvo and Muhammad also did very good jobs. They had a great mix of emotion, and non emotion. As soon as they knew they were in trouble, you could just sense that Muhammad new they were in deep crap and wouldn't be able to escape.
Cinematography - This film had EXCELLENT cinematography. I loved the camera use in this tv movie. It was fantastic. Plus, the dark blue, and grey really sets the tone for such a case, as it gives the movie a "grimey" feel to it.
Plot/Storyline - It's based on true facts, so there isn't much to judge on. The director did an excellent job of translating these true events to an actual event on screen.
My grade - B+ (for TV movies.)
I've seen better, and oh God, I've seen FAR MORE worse. This is a must see if you like Phone Booth. A good popcorn movie to pass the time.
Although you may disagree, (since I live here in California and weren't in danger of the snipers), please, just enjoy the movie for what it is, a movie.
