Not what I expected - The film focused mainly on John and Lee's initial meeting
19 January 2017 | by Ed-ShullivanSee all my reviews

I cannot fault the first rate acting of the three main characters. The father John Allen Muhammad (then aged 42) played by Isaiah Washington, separated from his children, who was sour on life and straddled with a restraining order against him from being anywhere near his ex-wife, the young lad from Antigua Lee Boyd Malvo (then 17) played by Tequan Richmond that John brings back to the U.S. to commit his murderous spree, and John's friend and fellow gun owner Ray, played by Tim Blake Nelson. This is a true story and although all of North America's televisions audiences were glued to their TV's 24 hour news station between October 02, 2002 until that fateful morning on October 24, 2002, when John and Lee were discovered sleeping in their blue Caprice car at 3:15 a.m. in the morning, and then the world breathed a sigh of relief.

Surprisingly the film did not focus on this 22 day period of random shootings and the fear it spread across the United States. Instead the first hour or so of the film was dedicated to providing us the audience with insight on how John Allen Muhammad recruited his young naive accomplice Lee Boyd Malvo who had no father figure in his life and was basically abandoned by his mother with no food or money to fend for himself back in Antigua. It seemed too easy for the adult John Allen Muhammad to manipulate the much younger and love starved Lee Boyd Malvo to accept the role of sniper and murderer.

I would like to bring to your attention a comparison of how in 2005, the legal system went very hard on this young naive black man aged 17 sentencing him to six consecutive life terms without the possibility of parole. Now compare this harsh sentence to the pathetic light sentence that occurred in 2013, of ten years probation and no jail time for a then 17 year old white caucasian Ethan Anthony Couch from Texas who while driving impaired killed four (4) innocent bystanders who were assisting a stranded motorist on the side of the road that this drunk and under the influence of drugs ran over and killed. Two passenger's in Couch's truck that he was driving also suffered bodily injury, one with complete paralysis. His parents were millionaires and their costly legal team defended this despicable killer with a defence that their (very rich) client suffered from a term called "affluenza". After fleeing the country illegally to Mexico and witnessed drinking and partying Ethan Anthony Couch was brought back to Texas and served a two year prison sentence.

I am not disputing that both of these young men are responsible for the deaths they caused but without knowing which if these criminals was white or black skinned I am quite sure we could all ascertain by their imposed sentences which was the poor black youth and which was the rich white youth.

As for Blue Caprice the acting by Isaiah Washington, Tequan Richmond and Tim Blake Nelson was superb. The background story of how John Allen Muhammad manipulated and intimidated the much younger parent less Lee Boyd Malvo was understood and I would have preferred the film would have captured more of the documented details of how these two criminals plotted, some times executed and other times abandoned their plan of another random execution all in an effort to somehow cover up that John Allen Muhammad's real intention was to kill his ex-wife and throw the police forces off that this was his sole purpose in the first place. The resulting damage attributed to these two killers was the 10 non fatal injuries and 17 deaths attributed to what is now known as the Beltway killers.
