During the verdict reading, the clerk of the court begins reading the verdict by announcing, "We the jury, in Miami-Dade County, Florida..." however at the time of the Bundy trial, Miami was part of Dade County.

User Reviews

 
Too superficial
5 May 2019 | by Michael-s-duganSee all my reviews

First the good. Solid work from the actors, particularly Efron, Parsons and Milkovich. The costuming and set design was spot on, especially the Miami court room.

Now the not so good, there is just too much to unpack with Ted Bundy to cover in 110 minutes. The movie has to gloss over so much material to fit time constraints. We only mildly see Bundy's manipulative skills. We never see the psychopathy. Without more detail and more insight into the crimes, the movie is really just flabby and flaccid.

To me, this movie would have been better served as a mini series so we could see the beginnings and evolution of Bundy and his relationships.
