During the first news report after the first murder of the movie, they misspell the name of the killer. Instead of saying Daedalus, on the Reuter at the bottom of the screen it reads Deadalus strikes again on the second time you see the newscaster reporting for HD6. See more »

It makes Daedalus seem like a killer rather than a wing maker
I felt the movie had entertainment value, and the plot had some quirky turns keeping it interesting. Most of your Lifetime or Hallmark movies seem to be nice, relaxing, enjoyable, but not intensely great. Most of the time they are clean so you don't feel you have to plug your years or take a shower after watching them. And this movie was no exception.
The story led you to believe it was about a tall, highly intelligent, but older mass murderer whose M.O. was to kill someone while framing someone else. Somebody would be accused, found guilty, and exonerated, and the movie left you puzzling over who the killer really was, as any mystery would do.
The funny thing is that the movie gave you a dark and horrible image of the name, Daedalus and a circular labyrinth. Watching it, you might feel you were hearing about the Zodiac killer and, say, a pentagram. But in Greek mythology, Daedalus was the father of Icarus, and both were locked away in a tower until Daedalus collected the feathers that the birds would leave behind and fashioned large wings for him and his son, and the two flew away from the tower. However, Icarus flew too close to the sun and the wax on his wings melted sending him down to the sea where he drowned.
Naming a mass murderer after Daedalus seems a little goofy. But the actors seemed to work with the story line well. It is a nice movie to watch, better than many, cleaner than most, and a relatively engaging plot. If you need a relaxing evening and want to kick back and watch a movie, I'd recommend it. It should intrigue you without insulting or offending you with foul language and nudity. Though the murder at the start of the movie can be unsettling.
