Trivia

The Zodiac killer's executioner-style hooded costume is based on real-life Zodiac survivor Bryan Hartnell's description of the killer. See more »

Goofs

The rifle is a bolt-action, requiring a manipulation of the mechanism for each shot, which takes from about one half second to two seconds, depending on the Operator. When shooting at the Driver on the dirt road at the Ranch, the sound of the reports are in semi automatic, rapid fire timing, which isn't possible with a bolt action, even if by Lee Oswald.

The characters are imbeciles!!
16 November 2017 | by pediatricgrimeSee all my reviews

The most stupid characters I've ever seen! The girlfriend didn't even understand how a cipher works! The boyfriend wanted to fight everyone. The killer was a genius in his day, now he made huge mistakes. How is that plausible? Only positives were cinematography, score and editing, I suppose... Avoid at all costs, unless you want to actually lose some IQ-points!
