User Reviews

An engaging thriller
2 February 2016 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film tells the story of a married lawyer with a promising political career, who gets side tracked by experiences with ladies from an escort agency.

"Zipper" keeps me engaged because the I like the story. The first half is more erotic while the second half is more of a thriller. How Patrick Wilson does a good job portraying his character, who lets his urges overtake his sensibility. His guilt in the diner with the reporter is piercingly good. I think the story is well presented, easy to follow and engaging. The scenes are nicely shot as well. I enjoyed watching "Zipper"!
