Serena Scott Thomas,
You join the pohlice to meak a difference, and everyone treats you like criminal
If the title of this flick did not clue you in, let me leave absolutely no doubt; this is pure crap, and done in poor taste. It is emotional porn for conspiracy nuts(and for any of those reading this, no, this doesn't even bother to answer all of the questions it raises). I watched it to the end merely to be able to honestly review it, as I could figure out from before it began what the movie only proved; that it is a piece of exploitative, sensationalist garbage, put together for people who require meaningless tragedies to be explained by ridiculous coverups, and in doing so, tearing open wounds that could(and should) be allowed to heal. You know what, I have no problem with those who choose to believe things like what this picture proposes; just don't spread it like this, because as much as I hope that few rely on fictional films over the news mediums for their information, I don't believe that that goes for everyone. No, I tend to favor artistic license over taking care of those who are too ignorant to look into something for themselves before taking whatever Hollywood(or in this case, Lifetime) feeds them as the truth; however, there is nothing special to this, there is little reason for this thing to exist. All it does is put images to what some decided to think really happened. Perhaps you've read what I wrote about The Ghost Writer, and are considering me a hypocrite; what you must remember is that that was an example of a carefully crafted experience(like it or not, can you deny its ability to build atmosphere?), it did *not* use anyone's real name, and finally, it was far closer to being accurate. I haven't read the book that this is based upon, but I doubt it's better than this adaptation. Every character is one-note. The acting is decent at best(the accents can be hilarious; I swear he did not say "digging", that was a K, *not* two G's). Editing and cinematography are fine. There is a little violence and disturbing content in this. I recommend this to its obvious audience. 5/10
