Very Positive
12 November 2003 | by samantha-olsonSee all my reviews

I thought that the movie was an excellent experience. It reached me on many levels, as both a parent and a local from Lansing. It was very well done and had touches that made it seem more professional than most box office hits I've seen. "An Ordinary Killer" was also presented in an extremely compassionate manner. You felt the pain of the town and of her parents. Hooray for Anthony Hornus for highlighting such an extraodinary event as a murder being solved 28 years after the fact. I will also give the cast and crew an old fashioned Army "Hooah" for a job well done.
