"I have been trying to work with Zac Efron for a long time," producer Nicolas Chartier said to Variety Magazine. "From his dramatic turn in Paperboy to his hilarious performance in Neighbors, he continues to impress audiences and critics alike with his extraordinary versatility and range. We couldn't be more excited to see him in this amazing role." See more »
During the indictment reading in front of the press, the door behind Sherriff Ken Katsaris reads "Miami-Dade County Clerk's Office." At the time of the Bundy trial, Miami was part of Dade County. The county name did not change to "Miami-Dade" until 1997. See more »
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.
