Zodiac Killer (2005)

* (out of 4)

Ulli Lommel strikes back with another "based on true events" film but this one has very little to do with the real case. In this version, Lommel works on the notion that the killer was never captured and he sets the action around a loner who hates to see old people treated bad. With this in mind, the killer starts shooting those who abuse old people via Zodiac style. Once again we've got a fairly interesting idea but the director doesn't do anything with it. Instead of giving us any type of story Lommel just throws out violent scenes and stupid dialogue that doesn't ever say anything. Last House on the Left star David Hess plays a small role and Lommel actually has the biggest part in the film. The rest of the cast members are very poor but that goes well with the poor look, poor style and every other poor thing this film offers. Lommel also crosses the good taste line when he shows countless real crime photos of all sorts of people murdered, ripped in two and even one who who was thrown through his car window.
