Terrable TV movie about the perils of the Unabomber manhunt
21 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

Unabomber, staring Robert Hays whom gained fame from the comedic Airplane movies and TV actor Dean Stockwell, was one of the worst, poorly edited movies i have ever seen. The acting was terrible on the part of all players, including Hays and Stockwell, whos carrers have burned out and it was clearly evident in their performances that they no longer hold passion for their work.

Each of bombing scenes seems as though they were produced by a band of amateur vidiographers, with the actor curiously opening up the over-stamped, small white packages from unknown senders. This is followed by the screen typically turning blank accompanied by the noises of a terrable explosion. It seems there were no genuine pyrotechnics involved, just the screen turning white and bad acting.

While it did shed a historical light on the horrendous events which took place during the 80s and 90s, the film was rather silly and was slightly comedic because of its poor acting. The actor who played Theodore Kazynski had an uncanny resemblance to Emilio Estevez, which was amusing.
