Poorly done
2 February 2018 | by ksiegle-06013See all my reviews

I was so excited to get another movie on this tragic case. I like Scott Foley and Dave Annable, but every actor in this movie was awful. It is a poor portrait of a great book and the movie,Fatal Vision. If I was seeing this case for the first time (in this movie), I would have been lost. I have been following this case since 1984, have all the books and the movie Fatal Vision, and frequent some forums. I was bored to tears with this one, It touched on no points of why he was actually convicted. Maybe I'm just spoiled with Fatal Vision and their cast and the thoroughness of that movie. jmo of course
