There can be No Excuses. No Matter the Budget, it is Incomprehensible to make a Movie about a Real-Life Serial Killer and Eliminate the Most Profound Identifying Characteristics of said Serial Killer. Bill Bonin was a Sexual Predator First and Foremost. He was a Gay Killer/Torturer/Rapist who Preyed on Teenage Boys and the Brutality of His Crimes are Well Known.
So Why Bother? The Movie is Competent, even Well Done as far as it goes and the Acting is Certainly Up to the Task at hand. But the Disassociation from and Elimination of the Sexual Aspects (aside from a few lines of dialog) about the Nature and Motivation of the Crime Spree is Unacceptable and Disrespectful of the Victims.
Even with all the Glaring and Sneering and Far Away Eyes of the Lead Actor, the On Screen Character Never Comes Close to Fleshing Out the Real Freeway Killer. The One On Display here is a Bonafide Psycho No Doubt but the Real Life Sexual-Maniacal Whack-Job is Somewhere in the True-Crime Files and Nowhere to be Seen here.
This is a Missed Opportunity because the Ingredients are all here. Some Good Acting and Low-Low-Budget Exposition, but it is a Shame that the Filmmakers Stayed Away from Exploiting the Excesses of the Motivational Kill-Lust, Perhaps a Fear of Exploitation, but in doing so the Heart of the Story is Abandon when it should have been Cut-Out, Carved-Up, and Creatively Displayed.
