I didn't really know who JonBenet Ramsey was before watching this, even though it seemingly was a pretty high profile case back in the days.
Anyway she was a child beauty pageant who got killed at the age of 6 and no one was ever found guilty of the crime.
And this documentary re-examines the case in every detail, it's more or less like getting up and close into a crime investigation but the investigators here seem to be doing a lot better than the ones who were assigned to the case originally.
And in the end to me, it seems as though they pretty much solve the case (although one can't be 100% for sure of course, and documentaries tend to leave out details that doesn't co-sign with the theory they are projecting to us viewers even though I don't think that is the case here).
Even though there is very little to complain about at times I found myself a little exhausted, perhaps it would have been better split up into 4 parts instead of just 2.
The information we get is good and all but it gets a bit stilted at times with information upon information all very formal and of course the fact that none of the Ramsey's are willing to be interviewed doesn't help.
But that said it's definitely not bad, and if you have a interest in the case then it's something well worth seeing for sure, or criminology in general.
